Glossop North End AFC Juniors & Ladies

01 September 2017

Glossop North End AFC Juniors & Glossop North End Ladies Football Club   

The Committees of Glossop North End AFC Juniors and Glossop North End Ladies Football Club are delighted to announce that Derbyshire County FA approval has been given for their integration into one Club.

As of 1st September 2017, the Juniors and the Ladies sections have amalgamated and will now be known as ‘Glossop North End AFC Juniors & Ladies’.

Dave Rowlinson, Chairman of the Club expressed his delight at the merger.  “The main driver has been our desire to create a seamless player pathway for our numerous girl’s teams into female open age football. The Ladies Team has been phenomenally successful over recent years and credit must be given to their Committee, Leanne Pace, Zoey Shaw and all the players for their achievements.  It was felt by both Committees that by providing a fresh impetus as One Club, with the Ladies being part of the larger Juniors set-up, we can develop together our Girls and Ladies football offering, providing inspiration for more Girls and Ladies to participate.

The support from Derbyshire County FA and The FA has been critical for the merger to take place.  As part of this process I am pleased to confirm that our new Ladies Team will be entering the Cheshire Women’s and Youth Football League in Division One, playing teams such as Runcorn Linnets, Stockport County Development and Chester FC”.

Amy Bouchier-Howard from the Ladies section has been appointed onto the revised Club Committee and will over-see the integration over the next 12 month period.

Glenn Etchells has been appointed as the new Ladies Team Manager, with Jen Gray as Assistant Manager, with Leanne Pace and Zoey Shaw assisting as Coaches.  Pre-season training takes place on Wednesday nights, 8pm to 10pm at Glossopdale ATP, Hadfield.  Matches are played at this same venue, alternate Sundays, with a 2pm KO.  If you are aged 16+ and are interested in attending the sessions, then please contact Glenn on 07717 501473. 

In addition to the Ladies team, the Club now offers girls football at various age groups.  As such, if you know someone who is interested in playing football for one of our girls’ teams and they are in School Years (as at 1st September 2017) three, four, five, six, seven, nine and ten, then there is a team for you.  Further details can be found on the Club’s web site Please follow @glossopjuniors & @gneladiesFC for latest news and look out for our new Facebook page coming shortly !
