BRIDGWATER College have boosted their women's football squad with Abigail Locke joining them in September.

The youngster is the first to use the college's scholarship scheme worth up to £500 where she will combine her A-Level studies with a structured and professional football programme.

Sports Development Manager Luke Buckingham said: “We have known about Abigail for a while and we are delighted that she is joining us considering she had a number of other offers.”

Locke, who currently studies in Street, said: “I'm excited about getting started because I've heard so many great things from other players.”
