DORCHESTER Town and Yeovil Town Ladies will continue their groundsharing agreement into next season, the two clubs have announced.

Monetary issues prompted Yeovil’s two-tier drop from the FA Women’s Super League and the Glovers had undertaken a financial review, leading to uncertainty regarding a playing base for the 2019/2020 campaign.

However, new owner Adam Murry has moved quickly to ensure the Clayson Stadium remains the Glovers’ home for the upcoming FA Women’s National League South season.

Speaking to Echosport, outgoing Dorchester Town chairman Matt Lucas expressed his delight at preserving the “bond” between the two teams.

He said: “We’re really pleased as a whole from the club’s perspective. Over the course of last season there was a real bond between Yeovil Town Ladies and Dorchester Town.

“Individuals around the club really wanted to help Yeovil Ladies as well. There was a good atmosphere between the two clubs.

“We have been in dialogue consistently over the close season and it was great to be able to negotiate an extension with the new owner Adam Murry.”

Yeovil Ladies fans will now get the chance to watch the likes of Watford, Cardiff City and Portsmouth at Dorchester plus the newly-renamed Hounslow, formerly Queens Park Rangers.

In a statement, Yeovil Ladies added: “The welcome of both Dorchester Town FC staff, supporters and the loyal fan base from the area was a great support to all connected with YTLFC last season and we are delighted to be able to formally confirm our return.”
