The Future is Bright…… The Future is Blue and Pink …..

Bishop Auckland Football Club is thrilled to announce a new community partnership with Bishop Auckland Girls FC and their Ladies teams.

A meeting took place earlier this week with the management team from Bishop Auckland Girls and representatives from Bishop Auckland Ladies FC. Both clubs have agreed to work together to develop the foundations already in place and secure a natural pathway for girls/women’s football in our town and surrounding areas.
Bishop Auckland Girls FC has agreed to become a “feeder club” for our Ladies teams with immediate effect. This will mean that their players will have a structured and natural pathway into the adult game in the future with Bishop Auckland Ladies FC.
For Bishop Auckland FC it will mean that the Ladies teams will have a steady supply of young female footballers coming through from junior grassroots football for many years to come and at the same time building stronger links with the community of Bishop Auckland and its surrounding areas.
Both clubs will continue to work together on ways they can interact with each other more and further details will follow in the coming weeks.
Bishop Auckland Ladies will play their final home game of the season at Heritage Park on 7th May against Gateshead Leam Ladies and are delighted that Bishop Auckland Girls U12’s have accepted the invitation to be ball girls / mascots for it. The match will kick off at 2pm and everyone is welcome to come along and support us. Bar open from 1.30pm.
A spokesperson for Bishop Auckland Ladies said:
“We are extremely excited about the new partnership with Bishop Auckland Girls and we will continue to liaise with them over the coming weeks and months to make sure that we develop a strong process for their players coming through from junior to Adult Football. For us, this is a step in the right direction for the future of our Ladies section as we will have a steady stream of young players coming into the club for many years to come.
A Bishop Auckland Girls Representative said:
“A link with Bishop Auckland Ladies is a great chance for girls’ football in the local area and for our club to be able to transfer girls across to a local ladies team after they have finished junior grassroots football. It’s an opportunity for the town to continue girls’ football for many years without them having to leave the local community. The partnership will be great for both clubs, the local community and girls football in Bishop Auckland and the surrounding areas.”
