Wakefield Trinity Ladies FC and Wakefield AFC to partner
Wakefield Trinity Ladies FC and Wakefield AFC are delighted to announce a brand-new arrangement which will see the two clubs work closer together over the 2021/22 season.
Both clubs are determined to develop Women & Girls football by creating a pathway for the younger generation of female footballers in Wakefield, whilst also giving opportunities to the open age players to play at a really good level in the Women’s game, with the First Team playing in the North-East Regional Women’s Football League Premier Division (Tier 5).
Trinity Ladies already boast seven FA Weetabix Wildcats centres across the district, encouraging girls aged 5-11 years of age to take their first steps into football in an enjoyable environment that allows them to have fun and make friends while playing football. From September, they will also boast a Player Development Centre for 12–16-year-old females, adding to the Wakefield College Football Academy for Girls they have delivered in partnership with the College over the last couple of years, playing in the English Colleges Premier League.
