Bridgwater Town v St Nicholas
 Women's Football News 21 Sep 2013
F.A.Women's Cup - Road to the Final
Our game in the south is between two teams who play in the South West League with Bridgwater Town playing host to St Nicholas.
Bridgwater Town Ladies were formed in April 2008 from the remnants of Wembdon Ladies in the Somerset County Women's League. They joined the County League for the 2008-09 season and finished a creditable fourth place. The following season saw an improvement finishing second to Ilminster and reaching the final of the Somerset Women's Junior Cup, losing 3-1 to Ilminster.
However, the 2010-11 season saw Bridgwater win the League and Cup double beating Shepton Mallet 2-0 in the Cup Final. They took promotion to the South West Women's League for the 2011-12 season and were placed in Division One East. What started with the intention of consolidating for the season, saw Bridgwater come with a late surge, finishing runners-up to Downend Flyers and thus gaining promotion for the second successive season.
This saw them in the Premier Division at the start of the 2012/13 season and they made a good start before the terrible weather saw them take an enforced break for nearly three months. When they resumed, they failed to find their earlier form and finished in eighth place. They did however, reach the final of the Somerset Women's Junior Cup for a second time but lost 5-0 to Brislington. This season, with several new signings, Bridgwater currently sit at the top of the Premier table having won four and lost one so far.
The manager of Bridgwater is Ben Norman, who took over as manager of Wembdon Ladies and it was he who was instrumental in persuading Bridgwater Town F.C. to adopt a Ladies team. Ben is a sports lecturer at Bridgwater College and has run the College Ladies Football Academy and has, for the past four years been a Performance Analasist for England Colleges Football. He is currently studying for his UEFA B Licence Coaching Badge.
The captain for the past two seasons is Anne-Marie Moule, (known as Amber to all her friends). She was in the Wembdon team that Bridgwater took over and has been a loyal servant to the Club. Current leading scorer is Anusia Rourke, who joined in 2012 and was leading scorer last season. She has currently scored five goals in four appearances.
Special mention must be given to the terrific support new Chairman and Vice Chairman, Pat Parker and Richard Johnson have given to the team this season, it has been much appreciated.
St Nicholas are in their fifth season of senior football and are a part of the main club which has been a thriving youth football club based in Chipping Sodbury near Bristol.
After a successful run in girls football, the team entered the Gloucestershire County Women's League and won Division Two at the first attempt, as well as the League Cup. The following year they went close to honours by finishing as runners-up in Division One as well as reaching the League Cup Final once again but this time losing to Quedgeley Wanderers.
They accepted promotion to the South West Women's League and enjoyed a great first season in the league, carrying off the Eastern Division One title at the first attempt. They made an excellent start to life in the Premier Division, winning their first two games, and are currently placed just behind the leaders.
John Seymour, who is also Club President, formed the first girls team back in 2002 and has managed the current team through the age groups to the present day. He is assisted by Eddie Lambe with Kevin Cooper as physio. Sadly they will be without captain Sophie Sweet who suffered a broken leg before the start of the season so talented young midfielder Rianne Lewis will wear the armband in her place. Becky Rexworthy has been leading scorer in recent seasons and has started off well this time around.
Bridgwater Town FC's Fairfax Park home will stage this fascinating tie between two teams who have made good starts to the new season, making this Cup tie too close to call.
