Yeovil’s return to women’s football in 2023 saw them score 54 league goals, averaging a staggering 6 goals per game.

Another player who finished 2023 on double figures was the skipper Jess Hodge, who scored twelve times. Playmaker Abbie Carslake leads the league assists table, with ten to her name. Sunday’s fixture against Portishead Res marks Yeovil’s tenth league match, as we edge past the halfway point, Yeovil Town Women will have a league title in their sights heading into 2024.
