FC United of Manchester Women's Team

FC United of Manchester is delighted to announce that in the 2012/13 season the club will have a women’s team running out on a Sunday afternoon in our distinctive red, white and black kit.

With FC United’s recent "A Woman’s Place is at the Match" event showcasing women’s involvement at our club, more and more women getting involved in playing football and with our own ground on the horizon, we felt that the time was right to have a women’s team representing FC United of Manchester. We’re really excited about this development, which is a significant one for our club.

The team will be run by John Marsden, former manager at Birkdale United Ladies, and Denton Girls manager Lee Sutton. Both John and Lee have valuable coaching knowledge and experience in woman’s football and they are looking forward to building a team and achieving great things in the women’s game. John says: "Forming a women’s team is something we’ve been trying to do for a while and I’m delighted to see FC United have gone ahead with it.
The FC United of Manchester women’s team will be playing in the Greater Manchester Women’s Football League which plays its matches on Sunday afternoons.

Manchester FA’s Get into Football Strategic Football Manager, Fiona Callaghan, said: "This is a welcome boost for women’s football especially in the north of the city of Manchester. Football is the biggest team sport for females in England at the present time so if clubs within the male game such as FC United with their passion and track record in community football are looking to create new teams, inevitably it will enable more women to play competitive football and further raise the profile of the game. This is really good news!"

We play our home matches at broadhurst park fields in moston, next to our soon to be home ground.
