International Surrey Football is pleased to announce that the Surrey women’s team is working on plans that will see the team return to the pitch for several games this season by playing a number of friendly fixtures midweek. This is due to player commitments with their respective clubs on Sundays which effectively rules out weekend games until the end of the season, Surrey Women will instead focus their attention on playing several midweek games against club sides, due to limited representative side options, with only the Army FA being located close enough to Surrey for a midweek fixture to be practical.
The team has been surveying its players in recent weeks to identify potential dates, with Wednesday and Friday fixtures currently standing out as the most likely, although Monday, Tuesday’s and Thursdays will still be considered, subject to confirmation of enough available players.
Details of the first game, including date, venue and opposition will be announced when available as Surrey continues to work with players to ensure enough player availability for each game and hopes that the team could return to the pitch before the end of 2021, should arrangements be agreed.
