The contribution of Wendy Bulloch to football in Dorset was remembered at Hamworthy on Tuesday evening.
Wendy had served on the Council of the Dorset County Footbal Association for fifteen years before her death earlier this year and played a major role in the introduction of mini soccer in the county as well as contributing to the rapid growth of womens' and girls' football.
A naming ceremony for the Wendy Bulloch Commitee Room at the Dorset FA Headquarters was followed by a match between teams representing Dorset and Somerset. Fittingly both squads were made up of young players with the visitors represented by their Under-18 squad who compete in the South West Championship.
A very competitive match took place in front of Wendy's husband and family members as well as FA collegues and friends. Somerset, including four players from the Yeovil Town Premier League squad - Grace Rapp, Rosie Williams, Beth Howard and Charlotte Tibbs - and several members of the Brislington team who have been so successful in the FA Women's Cup this season, gave a fine display of teamwork and attacking ability.
Dorset, with a core of players from Weymouth and Poole Town, defended very soundly for long periods and occasionally threatened the Somerset goal.
As well as hitting the woodwork twice, a goal in each half saw Somerset to victory in an enjoyable match, refereed by Wendy Toms, the former FIFA official, which showed well the development of the game in the region.
