Exeter City Women head to Portsmouth on Sunday to face newly promoted Moneyfields with the Grecians looking to build on an excellent first weekend to the season and maintain their top spot in the division.
Sunday’s fixture will be the Moneys first of the campaign after Maidenhead United were unable to fulfill their scheduled opener. An unbeaten 2021/2022 season saw the Hamsphire club claim the title over Abingdon United and set them up for a first season in Tier four.
Manager Karl Watson has recruited heavily in the summer, with over thirty players now registered at the club. Bekah Tonks, Tamsin De Bunsen and Jade Widdows signed from Portsmouth whilst Lavinia Nkomo, Beth Burgess, Sophie Phelps, Kau’lnohea Taylor and Lucy Nightingale complete the summer arrivals. Kim Whitcombe and Emma Pinner were the Moneys main goal threats last season and will no doubt offer a threat to the Grecians backline on Sunday.
Abbie Britton and Aaron Wakley’s side began with a comprehensive victory over Keynsham last weekend, Sarah Stacey hitting a hat trick in a seven-goal win. With the south coast such a dominate part of this season’s division, this is one of many journeys along the A303 for City and they will hoping to make it a successful first trip on Sunday.
