Welcome to the home of Chasetown FC Open Age Ladies!
Chasetown ladies are part of the West Midlands League Division 1 North, and have been together for over 8 years. Originally Hammerwich U12s Girls FC, they took the name of Chasetown FC in 2006 and have progressed throughout the years joining Open Age Womens football in 2009. Even being a young side they entered in style by becoming Staffordshire County Womens Leauge Champions in their first year of being in a league without age restrictions.
We are now looking to recruit players of all positions to join us in our campaign. If you are interested in playing for Chasetown, training with us, or even if its just for the social side, get in touch!
Manager Carly Edwards overview on the 2011-2012 season for Chasetown Ladies:
This season Chasetown Ladies were faced with a new challenge to overcome before the season had even begun. Trevor Barter, the only manager the ladies have ever known, hung up his boots and decided it was time for the team to experience new leadership and management. Unfortunately the ladies team were unsuccessful appointing a new manager to the team so player Carly Edwards took on the role as Player-Manager. As well as a new manager the team also had a new pitch for the season which later caused more problems than good.
The Ladies coped well with the challenges and flew into the season with a 3- 0 win over Silverdale and a 5- 2 win over Cosley town, who were top of the league at the time. The team were showing their strength, skill and prowess in their games, and really dominating all oppositions they faced. Training was also proving to be successful as the whole team reacted well to the new management and new location. Unfortunately the team were faced with two drastic losses as Jade Arber collided with a stone on our uneven pitch and resulted in and operation and over 20 stitches, and also Charlotte Bull went to Peru for 6 months to help under privileged communities. The team pulled together and continued to battle through games experiencing some near misses when they lost 2-1 to Reedswood and drew 2-2 Prees-Raiders. Unfortunately this streak did not last and Chasetown also faced their fair share of defeats. However the ladies pulled it together in their last few games of the season and managed to finish off with a 4-0 win over Port Vale.
It was a very mixed season with highs and lows on and off the pitch. However the ladies did Chasetown proud and played some superb football this season. Jade Arber completed the season as top goal scorer, even after the bad start, Carly Edwards finished with top assists and Lyndsey Turner most man of the matches. Although Chasetown Ladies finished 8th in the league they should be very happy with their season and look forward to another year of top quality football.
