The club are proud to announce that our first ever women’s team has been formed and will compete for Prescot Cables FC this season at The IP Truck Parts Stadium.
Prescot Cables Under 18s Ladies will compete in the Liverpool Women’s & Youth Under 18s league starting in September and will also compete in the All Cities Elite Shield (ACES), a national knockout tournament for the best teams at that level from across the country.
The team will be managed by Mark Hills, who is well known in the Merseyside area for his coaching roles in Women’s football. Mark is no stranger to Cables either, having watched the men’s team as a youngster himself, he is proud to now be leading his team as manager of our first ever Women’s team. Speaking of the team and the opportunities ahead, Hills said “I am filled with tremendous pride in what is a massive time for the women’s game & is a fantastic chapter in my coaching career, culminated in joining the footballing institution that is Prescot Cables FC. We share the vision, drive & ambition of a club which is only going in one direction.
Our aim, to be playing in the Women’s National League Pyramid in the coming years, only outlines the ambitions of this amazing football club right in the heart of the community.
It is an amazing feeling to be developing the first ever women’s team here and one that the players, coaches & myself are relishing.
Having family ties within the area and a knowledge of the club, having coming to watch Cables when I was younger means this is a fantastic opportunity for myself and my family. It was an opportunity I had to take. We have a supremely talented squad and we cannot wait to get going
The Board of Directors, the Chairmen have been brilliant in their backing and we share in our ambitions to help develop players and grow the women’s game within the community.”
Club Co-Chairman Matt Roberts said of this important milestone for the club: “For me this is proud moment for the club, and this continues to develop our core values as well as strengthen our diversity and equality within the club.
The team are already a well-established team with a very experienced management and coaching team. They have a fantastic can-do attitude and a great discipline both on and off the field. Not to mention their vast trophy cabinet from all their recent achievements.
The team will be playing at the IP Truckparts Stadium as we continue to try and bring our teams back “in house” where they belong.
I would like to thank Mark for his enthusiasm and co-operation during the forming of the team and also a big thank you to our kit manufacturers Kappa and MJM Sports for their support in getting the ladies kitted out to match our other teams within the club.
This is a great success story for the club an I’m sure you will all join me in welcoming them to the club.”
The women’s side will kick off their season on September 12th and the club will announce their fixtures and how fans can attend their games in due course.
