That has surprised me, great news..........but where is their nearest team? Are there even any others in London? Medway have one?

There has been one in Brighton.....Sussex Merlins....but not many fixtures available so might be an occasional side rather than a regular one. 

Their website isn't up to much so no idea of the current situation.

Early days, so they may have to scratch around for fixtures in the Merit League, but you have to start somewhere.

And, as women's Football in the USA has shown, roots can be put down in places where the men's game is not necessarily a dominant force. You're appealing to an untapped market for players, and who knows what phenomenal athletes might be uncovered in Sarf Landan?

I think a lot of teams have had women training.  We've had them, I think Chargers had enough for a team a couple of years ago.  For Brixton, I think they're putting down a marker that they want to have a team, rather than have a team ready to go.
