Darrel Evans’ side have set things in motion for the 2022/23 season with three games played, two league and one cup, registering two wins and one loss. A convincing start to the Southern Region Women’s Football League campaign alongside an early exit from the Berks & Bucks Senior Cup in the First Round Qualifying. The Yellawomen have picked up six from six having done the double on Abingdon with wins against both United, league favourites, and Town.
