YELLAWOMEN HIT THE ROAD FOR CRUNCH CLASH

#WeAreAscot.

Ascot United Women head to Bournemouth Sports on Sunday for a potentially crucial Southern Region Women’s Football League Premier Division clash (2pm). The Yellawomen are currently top of the league, three points clear of Sports, who have one game in hand and a superior goal difference.

With clear daylight between them and Woodley United in third place (table here), the title is realistically set for one of the two sides, but they both know that there is still plenty of football to be played after the crunch encounter. However, The Yellawomen know that victory is required to keep the onus with them but for a slip-up by the Dorset side or a swing in goal difference, and they are boosted by the recent return to training of prolific striker Nicole Brown who has not played since Autumn.

Both sides have proved hard to beat this season with just one league defeat apiece, and they drew the reverse fixture 2-2 when Ascot battled back from 2-0 down in October when Sarah Jones scored and then earned her side a penalty which Amelia Kimble rifled home to cap a memorable comeback.

After Sunday, Darrel Evans’s will be on the road for their final three league games against Wycombe Wanderers, Badshot Lea and Woodley United, and they also have a league cup semi-final to look forward to as they look to hold onto the silverware they won by beating Eastleigh in last season’s final.

A coach is leaving the Racecourse at 10:45 on Sunday (contact Ricky Simons, secretary@ascotunited.co.uk) and a match report will appear here later in the day. Bournemouth Sports play at Chapel Gate, East Parley – details are here.
