YEOVIL Town Ladies have announced that their FA Women’s Super League home clash with reigning champions Chelsea on Tuesday (7.45pm) will be switched on a one-off basis to Huish Park.

The Glovers signed a deal with Dorchester Town to host matches at the Clayson Stadium this season.

However, with a further home game against Birmingham City to play on Saturday, May 11, Dorchester will revert to hosting the Glovers for their final league game after the Chelsea fixture is completed in Yeovil.

Speaking to Echosport, marketing and media officer Andy Bevins said the Chelsea game could be a precursor to another contest at Huish Park next season.

He said: “We’re going to try this game next Tuesday and if everything goes well there’s a possibility that maybe next season we could play another game at Huish.

“We tried to keep it as quiet as we could because we didn’t know where it was going to go with Yeovil. We just needed some commitment from both sides to take this thing forward, which obviously we’ve done.

“It’s very good and hopefully good for the future. It’s just good for the community and hopefully we’ll drag some of the Dorchester people over to Yeovil to watch the game on Tuesday.

“We’ll see where it goes next season.”

Yeovil Ladies are one of the few women’s clubs not affiliated to the men’s first-team, who were this weekend relegated from Sky Bet League Two after a 2-2 draw at Northampton Town. 

Lee Burch’s side were relegated to the Women’s Championship after a 10-point deduction for financial issues earlier this season.

Echosport understands that Dorchester Town and Yeovil Ladies have been in talks for a number of weeks regarding the hosting of games next season.

On the Birmingham City game, Bevins added: “That will definitely be at Dorchester for a 12.30 kick-off, not to clash with the Premier League on the Sunday.”
