Radical Feminist Mark Slater and the cause of women's soccer

By Tom Winnifrith | Friday 9 February 2018


There are two things that I have never associated with my friend Mark Slater. One is being in any way, shape or form politically correct. The other is having any interest in football, it is surely a game for the oiks. Imagine my shock then to see the latest image tweeted by Brislington Ladies FC, my local club who I follow keenly - on twitter at least.

Brislington are in the fourth tier of the Ladies game, one division below West Ham Ladies. Indeed I took Joshua to see the mighty Irons stick six past our local side at the Brislington "Stadium" in the FA Vase three weeks ago. We were a good portiuon of the claret and blue army on the day. I digress. You will see that one of the birds below has "Slater Investments" across her chest.

What on earth is going on? I quiz Mark who says "This is our team in which all the players identify with their birth gender. Our trans team is brilliant – the only problem we have is whether they play in the men’s or women’s leagues." Okay that was a joke.

The real reason that Slater Investments sponsor Keynsham Town is that one of its analysts is their coach. And he seems to be doing a good job. Brislington are 7th in the 11 team division. Southampton Ladies are the runaway leaders but Keynsham are second on goal difference ahead of Plymouth Argyle.

Perhaps Mark, the keynote speaker at on April 21, should up the sponsorship to push for promotion next year? Incidentally I see that Keynsham are away to my fave Essex girls, West Ham Ladies in the FA Plate on Sunday. Sorry Mark but COYI!
