women Take Aim As New Season Begins

The brand new City of Liverpool FC Warriors took their first steps into competitive football last Sunday in the newly formed She Inspires league.

Having been only formed for around 3 months, what initially started as a way to encourage more women and non-binary players into football has gradually morphed into players wanting to represent the city locally and as we progress, regionally.

Missing their captain Gemma Stanton through an ankle injury, the purps put on a solid display in each of their two games. A slow start to the day meant AFC Warner took home the spoils in the first game but the warriors soon found their feet and it was Jess who struck the winning goal in a close game vs Heron Ladies FC leaving the team in a celebratory mood.

Catching up with Gemma Stanton, the warriors captain midweek, she said “Having attended the banding tournament in September 22, COLFC Warriors were promoted to the Championship league – just 1 division under the top Premiership league. Given the infancy of the team, this is an incredible achievement and just goes to show how far we’ve come and how far we can reach in the future. I am incredibly proud of the group of Warriors that attended the first competitive games on Sunday, already making a positive impression by achieving our first win on the first day. Watch this space…”

With standout performances right across the park it was fantastic to see the friendships that have also developed across the team, with the players all shouting and encouraging each other as the games wore on.  

Georgia Whitelaw, midfield dynamo and social secretary for the warriors had these words to say post game “It was a great afternoon to have our first experience in the She Inspires league, playing competitively against the other teams gives us the opportunity to reflect, grow and be more confident when we face the next upcoming fixtures! It’s also brilliant seeing so many women play football and how friendly opposition teams are to one another.”

The team now look forward to their next fixtures in the she inspires league as well as friendlies as they look to build upon their excellent start. We hope this is the first milestone in what will be an exciting part of the purple tapestry.
