History

Cambridge City Ladies & Girls FC enter their sixteenth season having their own Ladies teams again after Cambridge Women, which was a merger of Cambridge City and Cambridge United and affiliated to Cambridge City FC, decided in 2015 to go and play under the Cambridge United colours. After back-to-back promotions this season the Ladies will play in the Premier division of the Eastern Region Women’s Football League and the Development Squad will play in the S-Tech Cambridgeshire Women’s Premier league.

Prior to 2002 the Girls were playing under the name of Cherry Hinton Crusaders with two teams managed by Eddie Tucker and David Hewson with Kevin Jacklin as the Club Chairman. They were approached by Cambridge City to play their football under the name of Cambridge City. Over the years the Club has expanded and now has teams playing in the Cambridgeshire S-Tech League at U9, U10, U11, U12, U13, U14, U15, U16 and U17. The Girls have been very successful over the last fourteen years winning numerous league titles and cup doubles in the S-Tech Cambridgeshire and neighbouring counties. On three occasions the City Girls have made it through to the English National Final of the Tesco Cup.

Cambridge City Ladies & Girls FC continues to be a breeding ground for talent with the following City Girls going on to play at higher levels:

Lucy Parker, Arsenal and England.

Rebecca Bull, Arsenal and England.

Leigh-Anne Robe, Arsenal and England, now playing for Millwall in WSL2.

Laura Mills, Chelsea and England, now playing for Cambridge United Women.

Holly Greenwood, Arsenal and now playing for London Bees in WSL2.

Amber Gaylor, Arsenal and now playing for Millwall in WSL2.

Leanne Tucker, Rebecca Hewson and Rachel Pearce have all gained scholarships in America.

Cambridge City Girls are now a sister club to Arsenal Ladies who are without a doubt the most successful British women’s team ever having won 58 trophies in their glittering history. This is an amazing opportunity for our club to extend its coaching skills and to enable our players to experience first-hand the wonderful facilities Arsenal Ladies has to offer. Arsenal have previously provided the pathway for our elite players and five of our players have made the move to Arsenal girls, three of which have gone on to play for England at youth level. With such a healthy youth section the future of the Cambridge City Ladies teams looks very bright. Having Arsenal Ladies as a sister club makes the future seem even brighter.

We are also a FA Charter Standard Community Club, which is the highest award a Club can achieve, and last season we won the Cambridgeshire FA Charter Standard Community Club of the Year award. The kitemark which recognises and rewards high quality levels of provision is awarded to clubs that are well run, sustainable, and which place child protection, quality coaching and safety paramount.

All our Managers and coaches are DBS checked and have received the basic training required by the F A (Coaching Certificate level 1) and currently 4 coaches have successfully passed the FA Level 2 Certificate.

Last season we were also honoured to be awarded the Cambridgeshire FA Mick North Club of the Year 2016-2017 award. This award covers the whole of the Cambridgeshire FA and we think this is the first time an all-female club has won this much coveted award.
