Pools Ladies Team Confirmed

Pools Ladies Team Confirmed

Ladies football, I'm still unsure if it is ladies football or women's football, has grown in popularity in recent years with the standard of this always increasing with more and more professional teams being created in the English game.

The success of the England Lionesses at the World Cup this summer has seen this popularity increase even more with the Official Website confirming the formation of a Hartlepool Ladies team.

Linking up with Seaton Carew Ladies this new Pools Ladies team kicked-off the season with a seven-nil win against Consett AFC Belles last Sunday.

Andy Stuart will oversee the side, with him saying.

'Our aim is to develop girls into better players.

'The support of Hartlepool is going to give us the opportunity to not only do that but hopefully attract more players to the club.

'The girls have been so excited and that's been reflected in the quality of their performances in training and in matches.'

Pools might be five levels below Super League One side Sunderland and also two below Middlesbrough's Ladies too, competing in the Durham County Women's League Division One, but it's a start!

The home games will be played at Hartlepool Power Station, however an FA Cup game on Sunday will be played at Billingham Town's Evolution Arena.
