GIRLS' FOOTBALL: Town girls defeat Reading in opener
SWINDON Town Under 16 girls beat a Reading academy side 2-1 in their opening game of the season.
More than 100 spectators turned out at Lambourn Sports Club to see the youngsters continue their good form of the previous campaign.
Town scored a goal in each half, with Karoline Byrom putting the Wiltshire side ahead before Amy Jolliffe sealed the win late in the second period.
Coach Shane Hewlett said: “The girls played well and although they spent large periods of the game without the ball, stuck to their task to secure the win.
“What is so promising is that they know that they can play much better and I look forward to watching them develop this season.”
All age groups at Town’s Centre For Football Excellence return to training at Croft next week.
Swindon also run player development centres at venues including the Oasis Leisure Centre and the Link Centre and are recruiting for the new season starting next month.
Hewlett added: “We run these classes for children aged 3-13 and give them the opportunity to progress, whether they are starters or advanced players.
“Children can play once a week as their only football practice of the week or fine tune their skills while playing for their local clubs.”
