Spartans FC are delighted to announce that with effect from playing season 2008-09, Scottish Women's Premier League team, Edinburgh Ladies FC, will join Spartans FC and become part of the Spartans family.
Craig Graham, Spartans FC club captain said: "We are excited about Edinburgh Ladies joining our Club and look forward to working together with them to help develop girls and women's football in Edinburgh."
Edinburgh Ladies FC, who currently sit third in the Scottish Women's Premier League at the halfway stage, currently play their home games at St Marks Park. Carson Ralton, Edinburgh Ladies FC Head Coach, said: "We are delighted to be joining Spartans. It will enable us to develop on and off the park and we look forward to providing an even more serious challenge to the more established teams in our league."
Becoming part of the Spartans will mean a name change with effect from next season. In addition, all home games will be played at the soon to built Spartans Community Football Academy. The new Academy, a £3.3m development, will be ready for the start of next season.
In addition to welcoming Edinburgh Ladies FC on board, Spartans are fully committed to increasing current membership levels of its embryonic Girls Youth Section, with players from Edinburgh Ladies FC lined-up and eager to help out.
Sheila Begbie, Head of Girls'/Women's Football at the Scottish F.A. is equally thrilled about the marriage, "We are delighted that Edinburgh Ladies are joining Spartans, a club who in the football community have a sound history and the reputation as being a dynamic and progressive club. This move bodes well for the girl's and women's game in the Edinburgh area," she said.
