Marieanne Spacey-Cale was delighted with a professional display from Southampton FC Women as they took control of the Southern Region Premier League with a 4-1 success at AFC Bournemouth on Sunday.

The win puts Saints joint top, and in pole position to clinch the title with five games remaining, although Marieanne was cautious not to overstate the significance of one victory.

Her side are back in action this Sunday against Ascot United at AFC Totton, bringing a close to Girls' Football Week which is taking place from April 1st-7th, and to celebrate, the club are offering free admission for all females!

Reflecting on the Bournemouth triumph, and looking ahead to the next few weeks, Marieanne said: "I'm very pleased. The game showed how far the girls have come this season.

"They dealt with the occasion and made it a spectacle for the 350 people who came out to watch.

"It was an exciting game of football and a great example of what this squad are capable of achieving.

"We've still got five league games to go. A league campaign is like a marathon and we're into the last stage now. It's 13 games with maximum points and we've become the team to beat.

"We need to stay focussed and maintain those levels until the end. The support is continuing to grow and I hope we're beginning to build a fanbase.

"The girls really want to play for the badge, they're passionate about this club. They are hugely committed and I'm excited for what they can achieve - both this season and in the future."
