FOOTBALL Swindon Town Women's Football


Swindon Town Women Captain Georgia Clifford has set ‘high standards’ for their next FA Women’s National League clash against Selsey Women, after losing two games out of three so far in the new year.

Swindon Town Women currently have had a good form of run in the FAWNL despite falling down with two frustrating defeats at the start of the new year.

However, most recently, Town got back to winning ways after Georgia Vandries, who has now secured three goals in two games, scored the winner against Southampton Women away last weekend.

Selsey Women have had a season in which they would hope to forget, after falling to zero league wins this season. But despite not having the best of results, Georgia Clifford is keen to put on a strong performance on Sunday.

“I think it will be a hard game due to the fact that we want to set our standards very high, and we want to perform to our standards, not our oppositions.

It will be a tough game in the sense of we want to get different people on the goal sheets, and we want to take every chance we get in the game correctly and still have that positive mindset in hopes to coming out with a good result.”

Also in January, Town were victorious in the Women’s County Cup after securing their place into the Semi-finals after a 6-0 win against Royal Wootton Bassett Women.

“The County Cup is something we want to go far in, as this is a perfect opportunity to give all the girls a chance to play at a high level as well as achieve something this season.

Making it to the semi-finals has been such a good achievement for the club, the staff, and the team. We put out strong performances, and I think as a group we all know we want to take and bring more to finish this season on a high.”

Richard Wood’s side currently sit in third place, with 23 points so far and in hopes to seek for that promotion title. The skipper believes that Town have reflected on the past defeats and will be looking to overturn it in the upcoming fixtures.

“This is our job. Week in and week out we want to perform to the best of our abilities and finish high this season. Our main aim is to get that title, or at least make it top three. I am excited for the rest of the season even though we had our most difficultgames out the way and we are disappointed, we have now looked in depth from that and we will make that turn around happen.”

Kick-off will be at 2pm and will take place at the High Street Ground Stadium as Swindon will look to give this game 100% and take away a victory on the road, hoping to continue pushing for promotion spot at the end of the season.
