Stoke Climsland WFC have now re-formed as Callington Town LFC.
The club, which was established five years ago, made the decision at a recent AGM. The Town already has men's teams in the South West Peninsula Divion One and the East Cornwall League Division One. They are also closely linked with the Callington Colts - one of the largest youth set ups in the South West. Callington Town manager says: "I think this was a natural step forward for the club, and I know that many of the player's are excited about the move. We are also very grateful for the Stoke Climsland commitee for the hard work and commitment we've received over the years.
"Many of the women players already have links with Callington School, and several have families and boyfriends that are involved with or play for Callington Colts and Callington Town. There was a feeling that if we had a greater presence at the Town then we would stand a better chance of recruiting players coming through the Colts."
The Stoke Climsland team, who struggled last season in Division 2 and just managed to avoid relegation, makes the move with the main core of players and the managment remaining the same. Their home pitch will now be Marshfield Park, and their team colours will be the traditional Callington black and red. The new Callington side will play in Division Two of the Jaipur Cornwall League when the season starts in September. McPherson continued: "I am hoping for a positive season with a decent sized squad of players. I will have much the same group of players as last season and I will look to bring in a couple of the Colts players and recruit. We need a good pre-season training to give everyone the motivation we need to have a good season."
New Callington Town Chairman Andrew Long, concluded: "We are delighted to have the ladies team on board. It is part of our ongoing community project to bring football into Callington, and everyone concerned is looking forward to having them as part of our club." Training will start up again on Tuesday July 10th, on the sports field at Callington School. Anyone interested in joining the squad is welcome to attend. For more information, contact (07970) 538967.
