Maidstone ladies' teams merge
 Women's Football News 15 Feb 2013
 
Ladies' football in Maidstone has been given a boost following the announcement that the town's two clubs are set to merge, with the new-look Maidstone United Ladies playing at the town's 2,300 capacity Gallagher Stadium. 
 
Former rivals Maidstone Town and Maidstone United will join forces from the 2013-14 season and play under the Maidstone United banner, competing in the London and South East Regional Women's Premier Division. From August 2013 the ladies team will play their home matches at the Gallagher Stadium on Sunday afternoons.
 
Peter Spragg, Secretary of Maidstone Town, will become Head of Ladies' Football at Maidstone United following the merger.
 
"Both teams will benefit from experienced players playing in a higher league, and coupled with the infrastructure of Maidstone United we can offer female footballers the best opportunities to enjoy and progress in the game," said Spragg.
 
Maidstone Town currently compete in the Premier Division of the London and South East League, whilst Maidstone United are in Division One East of the South East Counties League. Both teams are around mid-table in their respective divisions.
 
In addition to the senior team, the club will start girls youth teams at Under-10s and Under-11s with the intention of growing the girls' youth section as a feeder to the ladies' senior team.
 
Ladies football has shown a resurgence following the 2011 FIFA Women's World Cup and 2012 Olympics, and recent figures released by the Kent FA showed that there are now 150 female teams in the county. Any ladies interested in playing for the new Maidstone United team should contact Peter Spragg on (07956) 340535.
