Nantwich Town Ladies Football Club hope that the tremendous performances from the Lionesses in winning the 2022 UEFA European Women’s Football Championship will inspire local girls and women to try out the sport.

Nantwich Town Ladies FC recently held their first-ever Ladies Open Day to celebrate the growth of the ladies’ section of the Club and to make more people within the community aware of the opportunities at all levels and ages that exist.

Nantwich Town Ladies FC can offer a friendly atmosphere, full club support, FA qualified coaches, grass stadium pitch, 3G training facilities, excellent fan base and a family & community ethos.

Nantwich Town Ladies FC will shortly start their second season, against ten other teams, in the Premier Division of the Cheshire Women’s & Youth Football League (https://fulltime-league.thefa.com/index.html?league=423159). They have also qualified for their second successive appearance in the Vitality Women’s FA Cup in the forthcoming season.

Nantwich Town Ladies FC are always on the lookout for quality players to strengthen their first team. Training takes place every Wednesday (7-8.30pm) on the Applewood Arena 3G artificial grass pitch at Nantwich Town FC on Waterlode, Nantwich CW5 5BS.

Chris Broad, Manager, Nantwich Town Ladies FC said: “We hope that the success of the England Women’s side prompts more girls to follow their dreams. If that dream is to play football, Nantwich Town offer football for girls in the form of Wildcats training, for players from the age of 5. We also have recent been given the ‘Squad Girls’ status which only a handful of clubs have in the country currently. This is a programme aged at 12-14 year old girls.

On top of that we have competitive teams through the age groups through to our first team. I hope in future to welcome girls into our first team that got involved thanks to the Lioness’s success and started playing at Wildcats age.”
