In 2014 Stevenage Football Club combined forces with Stevenage Borough Ladies Football Club to form Stevenage Ladies Football Club.
The move was driven by the increased work in Women’s and Girls football in the local community undertaken by Stevenage Football Club Foundation. This work was supported by joint funding from Sport England and The FA with the aim of increasing participation at the grassroots level of the game.
At the time, then Head of Foundation Alex Tunbridge said, “As a Foundation we are beginning to heavily focus on Women’s and Girl’s football. In the first six months of this year we will have delivered over 180 hours of provision to over 270 females aged 16-25 years old. We need to provide opportunities for these players and so spoke with Stevenage Borough Ladies, who have enjoyed fantastic success through their parent club Stevenage Borough Juniors over the years. They expressed their ambitions to grow and play at a higher level of the pyramid and following consultations all parties agreed to forming the new club which will benefit not only today’s players but future generations.”
The ladies club has a first team and reserve team, both of whom initially played its home matches at Codicote Sports Ground.
Stevenage Ladies Reserves continue to play their Eastern Region home games at the Codicote Sports and Social Club (Bury Lane, Codicote, SG4 8XY). Matches usually take place on Sunday afternoon (2pm KO) and are free to attend.
