Aberdeen FC Women launched
 Women's Football Scottish Division 1 North News - 7 Dec 2018
Aberdeen Football Club can confirm it has launched a Senior Women's team for the first time in its history.
The new Aberdeen FC Women will compete in the SWFL 1 North League in its inaugural season in 2019. To ensure there is a development pathway for young, talented women in the region, the club has also formalised its relationship with local girls' club Aberdeen FC Ladies who will continue to operate teams from U7s to U19 National Performance League.
The club will now work to be the leading developers of women's football in the North East of Scotland, supporting them through their journey, with the aim of progressing the players and team to the Scottish Women's Premier League.
Aberdeen FC Women will be coached by club appointed staff delivering the AFC philosophy, developing their talent, and supporting women in the North East who have a passion to play top-level football.
The players, formerly of Aberdeen FC Ladies, were invited to Pittodrie this week to sign their official registration forms with the club and begin the process of integration at Pittodrie.
Work will continue behind the scenes at the club to develop coaching and support mechanisms as the women prepare to kick-off their season in March 2019.
Director of Football Operations, Steven Gunn added: "Aberdeen Football Club has had an affiliation with AFC Ladies for the last few years, largely through the provision of playing kit for the senior Ladies team. However, we are delighted to confirm the new Aberdeen FC Women's team will be integrated into the high-performance environment at Pittodrie.
"The rate of change in women's sports is one of the most exciting trends in the sports industry right now and we're excited about the challenge of launching our first ever official Women's team."
Aberdeen Football Club are currently looking for a part time coach to work with our newly formed Senior Women's Squad and are inviting applications from enthusiastic and committed individuals who want to work within Women's Football.
Aberdeen Football Club aims to provide talented female players in the North East with an elite level education and development programme which will allow them to reach their full potential in the game.
The role is part time for which coaches are paid monthly as well as all of the following:
1. The opportunity to be part of a highly regarded coaching system
2. Mentoring support and guidance from the senior coaching staff
3. A comprehensive professional support programme including membership of the AFC Coach Development group
4. Two AFC first team season tickets
The commitment is two training sessions per week plus SWF matches on a Sunday as required. Applicants must hold the relevant coaching qualification of C Licence or above and be willing to undertake a B Licence course within the next 12 months.
