Flying Start for Cheadle Town FC Ladies Team

Cheadle Town FC has acquired themselves a new team.

The Cheadle Town FC Ladies team is a newly-formed squad of players that were formerly playing at U18 level in the Cheshire Womens and Youth League but are now embarking on the road to success in the Open Age version of the same league. They were incredibly successful at Youth level, winning the league and cup double two seasons in a row.

This weekend saw them up against Open Age teams for the first time in competitive games and they proved that their quality was more than a match for those more experienced sides; they beat Burnley FC Girls and Ladies First Team 3-2 in an exciting semi-final and then the Stockport County Ladies First Team in the final (1-0) to be crowned English International Super Cup Winners.

Both Stockport and Burnley play in a much higher level of the game, with Stockport being just two divisions below the Women's Super League.

The team will play their home games on Sundays at 2.00pm at Park Road Stadium.

Anybody wanting to come down and watch can do so free of charge.

All fixtures and results can be found at their website (www.cheadletownladies.co.uk) or you can follow them on Twitter (@CheadleFCLadies)
