BRIDGWATER United Women are experiencing a decent start to life in the FA Women's National League as they currently sit in third place.

We spoke to captain Bow Jackson and midfielder Laura Holden to learn what it is like to play for Bridgwater.

Bow has been in or around the club since the Yeovil days and this season has been promoted to first team captain.

Laura on the other hand has joined Bridgwater in the summer and is currently in her first season with the team.

"This club is great; the atmosphere from the staff to the players and all the way down to the fans is positive and it really is a great place to play football," said Jackson.

Laura Holden said "this is the most welcoming club I have played for, everyone has been great and lovely to me."

Here is what else the pair had to say about their experience within the club.

On the season so far:

Jackson: "We have started the season well with some good results and we are happy with where we are."

"We are very much a team in a development phase and to show already we can compete with the league's best is nice to see."

Holden: "It has been a decent start for us really, we are still finding out feet but we are building something here and we are all in this together."

On the group:

Jackson: "Honestly we are like a family here, it is unlike any other club I have played for."

"Everyone is in this project together and the squad is strong both on the pitch and also off the pitch as a unit."

Holden: "We all get along, genuinely get along and it isn't just playing football with a bunch of girls, there is a strong friendship there."

On the fans:

Jackson: "Our support is great; it is honestly so good to see so many people at our home games and it really makes a difference in our performances."

"It gives us all that extra motivation to know we have fans who want us to do well."

Holden: "It is so nice to see and hear our supporters at the home games, they are great."

"The fans add so much, it is great to see so many kids and families getting behind our team."

Bridgwater United are in FA Cup action tomorrow away to Oxford United.

It will be an exciting rematch of their match earlier in the season where Oxford won 3-0.
