BCST Sponsor Bradford City Womens Football Club
By Bradford City Supporters Trust, Nov 22 2018 09:10PM
We are very pleased to say that for the fourth year running we have sponsored a
player at our women’s football club. As you know, this is an entirely voluntary and
amateur setup, with Bradford playing in the third tier of women’s football, the
Northern Premier League.
Off the pitch the women’s football club has had to deal with a number of challenges.
The stalwart Charlotte Stuart who had enjoyed success as player/coach for the first
team, decided to take a break from the Club to return to playing football. Charlotte
had been involved from a young age and was a major influence on the development
and training of the junior side. The junior side has been so successful that this
season there are 120 junior players. ‘The clear pathway from the Under 10s to the
First Team is one we are very proud of as a club and we aim to provide as many
girls with the opportunity of creating a career at Bradford City Girls as possible!’
Mark Brier, who had been appointed first team coach earlier in the summer,
departed after failing to win a game. He has been replaced by Meg Lawson and Toni
Butcher. They oversaw a promising 4:1 win over Farsley Celtic in their opening
fixture although results have not gone so well since. However the pair have a solid
reputation from their coaching of the reserve team in previous seasons and this is
helping to bring in new signings for a much depleted team.
We wish them every success and are proud to play a part in the development of
girls’ and women’s football in our city.
