After two wins on the bounce Aaron Smith's side will look to make it three out of three with the visit of Swindon Town on Sunday.

Wins against Brislington and Poole Town in the League and League Cup kicked off a great start to the campaign the Reds welcome the Robins to Romsey Town at the start of a busy eight days.

With three games for Southampton Women to begin September which ends with the longest away trip of the season to Exeter City.

Sandwiched in between is the local fixture against Southampton FC on Wednesday, September 4th.

The Robins have had a bit of a rocky start to the season with having to look for a new manager and losing their first game.

While Swindon had to sit out the opening round of fixtures due to the odd number of teams in the league they started the 2019/20 campaign at home in the FA Women's National League Cup Determining Round.

Milton Keynes of the National Southern Premier were the visitors and left 4-0 winners, Leah Littlechild bagging a brace for MK.

Now Swindon visit the Bypass Ground looking to kick start their season against Smith's promotion chasing side.

Last week Southampton won 2-0 in comfortable fashion against Poole, Tash Angel and Philippa Holden netting on a scorching afternoon on the south coast.

When the two sides met last season Southampton came away with all the spoils winning both the home and away fixtures 5-0.

The teams have met in total three times previously and Southampton have won them all, the earliest a 2-0 win in the FA Women's Cup in 2016.


Come along to the Bypass Ground for the 2:00pm kick-off in the FA Women's National League Division One South West.

The gates are open from 1:00pm and fans can pay on the gate; entry is £4 for adults, £2 for concessions and all accompanied under-16s get in for free.

Cold and hots drinks plus a selection of snacks will be available to purchase on the day as will be our new look match day programme.
