Shanklin Ladies are very proud to be the only Isle of Wight ladies team and to be playing in the newly formed South West Division One of the FA Women's Premier League.
Having secured a mid-table place last season in the South West Combination, they are looking forward to the challenge ahead. The players have a long season travelling many miles as far as Exeter, Swindon as well as closer to home in Southampton and Chichester, culminating in players having the opportunity to represent the Isle of Wight in the NatWest Island Games XVI Jersey 2015.
The Club is in a state of major transition - after eight years of great service the Reserve Team manager has stepped down and a number of players have retired. This has given the opportunity for a number of younger players and the reserves look set for an exciting season with a new look side. Any ladies (all abilities very welcome) interested in returning to the sport or fancy giving the game a try please get in contact, see contact details below.
The ladies have re-started a youth section spanning ages 7-15 in an attempt to bridge the gap between school and club football. Volunteers from within the ladies section including players have worked hard to get this going. The younger age groups are looking for friendlies and are about to begin a inter-club competition (more players welcome - contact our Secretary Julie Woodhouse on (07794) 448265 or email firstname.lastname@example.org) . The Under-15s have formed a team to enter the Winchester and District Girls League and we are all looking forward to an exciting season.
Off the pitch the Club has suffered a turbulent time. With the improvement in performance for the first team after a major promotion, the demands upon the club have dramatically increased. The travelling costs are far greater than they have ever been, whilst the new League now demands a pitch barrier, dugouts and facility improvements. These are all financial challenges on an already stretched budget. With the excitement generated over the years of promoting girls/ladies football, the club are now looking for support to maintain the dramatic rise in interest in female football on the Isle of Wight.
Anyone interested in sponsoring, supporting, coaching, playing or just watching the team on a Sunday, please contact Julie on (07794) 448265 or e-mail email@example.com or visit the website www.shanklinfc.co.uk for match reports and fixtures.
