Women’s Update – April

  • Post category:Women


Join us at a training session and you’ll discover modern facilities including an all-weather astroturf, a supportive team environment and a coaching team committed to nurturing your love of football. And did we mention our very own Football Fern? Not only a legend on the pitch but also an energetic, enthusiastic mentor for our younger players off it!


***Women’s W League Team***

The top team in the top regional women’s league in 2017; national cup semi-finalists, full and youth international players. If you’re an ambitious, hard-working player, keen to push on to the next level, join us and learn from the best in a proven, supportive environment. 

Don’t be stuck in the lower leagues or on a bench elsewhere on a promise that won’t be delivered!  We have a small squad this year so you’re sure to get game time.  Worried about transport? There’s a train station just a five-minute walk away and we may be able to help with transport if you don’t live locally. 

Coaches: Cushla Lichtwark and Phil Patterson
Training: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6.00pm-7.30pm @ Maidstone Turf
Game day: Saturdays
Age: 15+


New for 2018! Introduced to ease the transition for young female players from junior to senior football, the U18s league is also perfect for players who want to play for school and still remain in a club environment with an experienced, qualified coach (with opportunities for progression to the senior team).

Our plan is to enter a team in the new girls’ only U18s league (starts Term 2).  However, if we don’t have enough players to enter the league (or if the league doesn’t happen this year), we’ll run as a development squad throughout the season (with occasional non-league games).

Note: you CAN play junior football for one club and U18s with another (if the original club doesn’t have an U18s team) so do come along (and bring your friends) if you’re keen.

Coach: Lorraine Bowring
Training: Every 2nd Tuesday (from 27 March), 6.00pm-7.00pm (pre-season).
Game day: Friday nights
Age: 14-18
