Ladies’ fixtures schedule amendment

There has been another slight amendment to the Bradninch ladies fixture schedule — certainly in terms of their Devon Women’s League commitments.

The change is that our ladies will now host Paignton twice in the league campaign. The ground at Paignton is unavailable in August and so the fixture has now been reversed and so, instead of home and away, the Bradninch ladies will now entertain Paignton, first on August 8 and again on September 5.

The ladies, who start the new league term on Sunday, May 9, with a trip to Bovey Tracey who will also be the opposition for our ladies when they play their first home league game of 2021, on Sunday, May 23.

Next up, it’s a June 6 visit to Cornwood and, seven days later the team is on the road again with a game at Ipplepen.

The second home game of the season is a June 20 meeting with Sidbury the Kensham Park visitors.

The final Sunday of June sees Megan Acton and her team entertaining Cornwood.

Sunday, July 18 is a home game against Plymouth and on July 25 it’s the short trip across East Devon to Sidbury.

There’s a rearranged home game against Paignton on the second Sunday of August and, seven days later, Ipplepen will be the August 15 visitors to Bradninch.

The last away game of the season will be the August 22 trip to Plymouth.

There are two September fixtures, both at home with Paignton the visitors on Saturday, September 5 and then the curtain will come down on the 2021 season with a Sunday, September 12 home meeting with Ipplepen.
