Chief executive Steve Curwood said: “The club was keen to build on the girls football provision already delivered by Fleetwood Town Juniors and Fleetwood Town Community Trust.

“This now provides a pathway for girls to play from the very youngest ages all the way through to competitive open age football. The club were keen to ensure that Poolfoot and the Fleetwood Town family can deliver opportunities for all girls at any level.”
