SQUAD GOALS: DORKING TILL I DIE
Squad Goals: Dorking Till I Die, features Calum Best as the new Chairman of Dorking Wanderers FC Ladies. The women are all juggling work and family life with their passion for football – whilst trying to win the league and gain promotion.
Calum Best said; "I see this series as an opportunity to show what grassroots women’s football is all about – the challenges, the highs and lows of a team and a club looking to create something special.”
Dorking Wanderers FC Ladies
Dorking Wanderers FC Ladies team currently competes in The London & South East Regional Women's League (Tier 6 of the Women’s football pyramid). They also play within the Women’s FA Cup, Capital Women’s Cup and the Combined Counties Women’s Cup competitions.
They were only formed in 2020 but have quickly established themselves as a competitive force to be reckoned with in the local area. After narrowly missing out on winning the league and being crowned winners of the Capital Women’s Cup 2021. The Wanderers are undoubtedly on the rise!

RULES OF THE WOMEN'S WORLD CUP
As of 2023, the Women’s World Cup uses the 32-team format, the same as the men’s tournament used in 1998-2022. The team plays the other three teams from their own group once. Then the top two from each group advance to the knockout stage.
Winning teams earn 3 points, teams who draw get 1 point each, and then there are no points for a losing team. If teams are level on points at the end of the group stages, then the team with the biggest goal difference will progress.
- Win = 3
- Draw = 1
- Loss = 0
The knockout rounds are single elimination, in 4-rounds. The tournament also has a 3rd place match (between the losers of the two semifinal games), and the big one, the final!
Knockout games that are tied at the end of 90 minutes move to extra time. This is two complete 15-minute periods of play. If, at the end of extra time, the match is still tied, penalty kicks will decide the winner.
Penalties are a minimum of five rounds of kicks from the penalty spot. If no team is ahead after five rounds, sudden death begins until one team scores and the other does not.
