This being Edition 1 there are no results to feature. I've tried to ensure that the information is correct (hence the delay until the fixtures were on Full-Time). However, please let me know if there are errors and I will be happy to correct. This is very much a work in progress and all input will be welcomed.
Abingdon Town P-P Woodley United
Unfortunately Woodley will have to wait an extra week for their return to the Premier League after Abingdon sadly announced their withdrawal from the league.
Best wishes to everyone involved with the club and let's hope that they can reform and return to action next season.
Ascot United v Wycombe Wanderers
Ascot pushed Abingdon United for the majority of last season but eventually had to settle for second. They'll be keen to make a good start to this campaign, in which they'll start as many people's favourites. Wycombe finished second from bottom but showed that they could compete against the best in the division. BotP saw their game at home to the eventual champions last December and, although they lost the game, they put up a spirited fight. This will be closer than last season's league positions suggest. Wanderers got a point at the Racecourse last season, Naomi Tilley squaring it up after an early Dominque Carrington goal. A Nicole Brown double helped Ascot to a 5-1 at Burnham in the reverse fixture.
Venue: Ascot United Racecourse Ground, Winkfield Road, Ascot, Berkshire SL5 7LJ
Badshot Lea v Winchester City Flyers
After a second consecutive promotion, Badshot Lea find themselves propelled from the Thames Valley League into the heights of the Southern Region Premier. Winchester propped up the Premier Division and Badshot Lea took the Division 1 South title, their second in a row, after a fascinating tussle with AFC Stoneham. This could be an interesting pointer to the coming season for both teams. Flyers have experience on their side as they start their eighth consecutive season in the Premier League. However, Badshot Lea have not lost a league game for almost a year.
Venue: Operatix Community Ground, Westfield Lane, Wrecclesham GU10 4PF
Bournemouth Sports v Warminster Town
Sports finished third last season and looked good for that position. They had a very good FA Cup run, featuring some big results, until they eventually came unstuck at National League side Cardiff City, who went on to take the Division One South West title. Warminster's mid-table finish in the South-West Regional Premier League was largely due to their lack of goals as they ended with the lowest goals for in the division. Although probably not much of a pointer for this game, Warminster did lose twice to eventual champions Torquay United, who were one of the teams that Sports put out of the FA Cup.
Venue: Bournemouth Sports Club, Chapel Gate, BH23 6BL.
Eastleigh v Oxford City
Two sides who are very familiar with each other, entering the their third season in the same division. There was not much to choose between these teams last season, finishing 5th and 6th respectively. Last season Oxford took an early season three points at Eastleigh, winning 3-2. However, Eastleigh gained revenge back at Court Farm, winning 3-1 with goals from Chelsea Bates and two from Lani Dickinson.
Venue: The Silverlake Stadium, Stoneham Lane, Eastleigh, SO50 9HT
Division One North
Abingdon Utd Dev. v Wycombe Wanderers U23.
Two new teams to the division. Wycombe's Dev team came up after finishing second the Thames Valley Division 2 table. It's a big leap into the South Region League structure, but as Kidlington showed, it is certainly possible to hold your own. Abingdon's Dev. team has been reformed for this season after not playing last term (as far as I can see).
Venue: Abingdon United Women U23.
Beaconsfield v Penn & Tylers Green
A local derby to start the season. Newly promoted Beaconsfield face a stiff challenge against a Penn side who started last season very strongly but couldn't quite match up to the staying power of Milton and champions Woodley. It took until November for Penn to lose a league game last season. They'll be looking for a similar run this term. Beaconsfield were second top scorers on their way to third spot in the Thames Valley Division 2 table, but they did concede more than anyone in the top half of the table.
Venue: Beaconsfied Town Women's 1st Team
Caversham United v Milton United
Milton kept Woodley honest until towards the end of last season, playing some excellent football along the way. The Goats never managed to put together any real consistency and face a tough challenge in their opening game. Having said that, Caversham were the first team to take a point off Milton last season, a Freya Jenkins brace earning them a pint at The Heights. Milton gained some revenge with a 4-1 win at Mapeldurham in November. Zoe Barnes hitting two that day.
Venue: Mapeldurham Recreation Ground, Upper Woodcote Road, RG4 7LD
Chesham United Res. v Long Crendon
Chesham are making the biggest leap of any team, coming in from Division 3 of the Thames Valley League. They only missed out on the title by a point after a great run in where they won their last seven league games. Their first task is to take on last season's draw specialists, Long Crendon. The Greens finished in mid-table but only lost three games all season. If they can turn a few of those draws into three-pointers, they could be a force to be reckoned with this season.
Venue: Chesham United LFC Dev.
Kidlington v Eversley & California
Familiar foes who were closely matched last season. Both league games ended in home wins. Eversley won 3-1 at Fox Lane, a game that I had the pleasure to witness. Mia Caulcrick scored and absolute scorcher to put the Boars 2-0 and a late Courtney Sumner goal couldn't quite spark a Greens comeback. The reverse fixture at Exeter Close was the final game of the season. Courtney Sumner scored again as Kidlington ran out 3-0 winners.
Venue: Exeter Park, Crown Road, OX5 1AB
Division One South
Selsey Dev. v Abbey Rangers
These two finished bottom and fifth respectively last season. Interestingly, Selsey only managed to win twice in the last campaign and both came against this opposition, 2-0 on the opening day and 3-1 at Addlestone Moor. Georgina Starkey score three of the five that Selsey notched against Abbey over the two games.
Venue: The High Street Ground, The High Street, Chichester PO20 0QG
AFC Portchester v Woking
The Cards finished in fourth last season and managed some notable results including a draw at Champions Badshot Lea, and a 3-2 defeat of second placed AFC Stoneham. Portchy were crowned Hampshire County Champions after beating second placed Bournemouth Sports Res. 1-0 in May, earning their place in the Southern Region League.
Venue: AFC Portchester Women's
Stoneham v Rushmoor
Two more sides who competed in this Division last season. Stoneham battled it out at the top with Badshot Lea throughout the entire campaign, narrowly missing out after going down 4-1 to The Baggies in their final league game. Rushmoor finished second from bottom in what was a crowded table, with just 3 points separating them from third-placed Chichester City. Rushmoor also had some good results drawing with Badshot Lea and defeating Stoneham in the Cup.
Venue: Stoneham Lane Football Complex, Stoneham Lane, Eastleigh SO16 2PA
Bournemouth Sports Dev. v Havant & Waterlooville
Bournemouth Sports came up from the Hampshire County League Division 1, finishing as runners-up to AFC Portchester after that last game defeat to their rivals. Havant & Waterlooville are making a big leap, from Hampshire League Division 3. However, they won their league comfortably, were unbeaten and finished the season with a goal difference record of 103 scored, 7 conceded.
Venue: Bournemouth Sports Ladies Reserves
Fleet Town v Eastleigh Res.
Two more teams who have progressed from the Hampshire County League, finishing sixth and third in Division 1 respectively. Eastleigh held sway as far as their two encounters went last term, scoring four times on both occasions. A Danielle O'Leary hat-trick helped the Spitfires to a 4-3 at Fleet in October whilst an Ella Wilson brace contributed to their 4-1 home win back at home.
Venue: Fleet Town Women
