Nantwich Town ladies have been given the go ahead by the FA to resume their season on April 11th as they host Stalybridge Celtic Ladies at the Optimum Pay Stadium. We were able to catch up with Ladies first team manager Chris Broad as he looks ahead to resumption of football and he also tells us a bit about how the ladies first season in the league is going so far.

“Finally, we are ready to welcome our players and hopefully in the near future our supporters back to the club as the return to football approaches. Next week we will be back on the training ground with our under 18s and first team squads, preparing for the conclusion of our 2020/2021 season.

Although its disappointing that step 3-6 have been null and voided, we are happy that our league has been given the go ahead to complete the season in the best and most efficient way, something I’m satisfied that have done to the best of their ability in such a difficult situation.

We look forward to welcoming Stalybridge Celtic Ladies to Nantwich on 11th April after a long lay off and I’m hopeful we can continue the great work we have done so far. To be sat in third place with a chance of the league title still at this point in our first ever season as a ladies first team is remarkable and a huge compliment to the work everyone involved has done, nobody more so than the players who since coming together have been 100% committed to the cause and have worked hard on their game.

Hopefully in a few weeks the government will give the go ahead for spectators to return to games and we will be ready to greet you, but until then stay safe and well, and we look forward to a happy and healthy return to football. Let’s look forward to brighter times ahead”

Good luck Ladies!
