Walton Casuals Ladies was formed in May 2018 and produced a successful first season in the Greater London Women’s Football League which is now growing even stronger.
Things moved at a fast pace, and by June 2018 we held the first ladies trial day and attendance of trialists was tremendous, with players of all abilities, experiences and skills.
We held a further trial day in July and the total of players that attended was over 100.
This gave Walton Casuals Ladies a great start and platform which to grow. Being able to select two teams from trialists, a ladies first team, and a ladies reserve team, the plans started to come together for a successful season ahead. Since those first few steps the Ladies section now has 3 senior teams and a growing girls section.
The ladies section now has a great squad of 60 players with an average age of just over 18 and is filled with superb talent. The First team. in their first season, successfully won Division Two North scoring over 100 goals and competed in the final of the Capital Women’s Junior Cup. In their second season they accomplished back to back promotions by winning Division 1, however promotion was not possible due to the outbreak of Covid-19. 2020-21 has seen the ladies win the Premier division comfortably and with promotion to the London and South-East regional division arriving for next season.
The Reserves had a successful first season in Division Three South and have had a great cup run, culminating in winning the Sue Sharples Cup. Promotion was also accomplished and they are now consolidating in their division progressing players for first team places.
With success comes publicity which creates attraction, and the Walton Casuals Ladies management and Walton Casuals FC board are always planning for the next season. The Ladies section, having introduced a further team and a brand-new development section for girls are looking to grow each season. The structure in place will provide the perfect pathway for girls in football to progress and develop their ability. The development section will offer players the time needed to fully development and progress, helping and transforming players whom have their sights on becoming a first team squad member for the future.
The future at Walton Casuals Ladies is looking strong.
