Goal fest with ladies in ‘scoring overdrive’

October 04 2018

It was a memorable month for Keynsham Town Ladies in the FA Women’s National League, although it did not start that way, losing 3-2 away to local rivals Larkhall in a determining League Cup match, writes our correspondent.


From then on, the team went into goal-scoring overdrive, returning the next week to the same opponents for the more important league fixture, where they exacted full revenge, storming to a 9-2 victory.

That was followed by an evening fixture the following Thursday, where Keynsham put Brislington to the sword with a 7-0 away win.

Returning home on September 16, Keynsham saw off newly promoted and a very decent Chesham United, who made the journey from Buckinghamshire only to be on the wrong end of a 7-1 score line.

The next Sunday saw SSE FA Women’s Cup action with an away tie at Swindon Town, who play their matches at Fairford Town in Gloucestershire. Keynsham kept up their goal scoring, hitting eight goals without reply.

The goals have been shared around, but there has been an amazing start to the season for centre forward Kerry Bartlett, who has plundered a hat-trick in each league match so far.

The next home fixture is on Sunday, October 7 – a cup match v Southampton Saints. Kick-off is 2pm, admission with programme  is £3.
