Sam Ashton (Chair) will be writing regular newsletters to keep everyone up-to-date with the latest CCLFC news.

What better day could it be for introducing myself then International Women’s Day! A huge thank you to all the players from both the youth and senior sections of the Club who all share the same passion and that is to play women’s football!

It is with great delight that I have been voted as Chair of Chichester City Ladies and Girls Football Club. I am passionate that every girl/lady who wants to play and achieve their dream of playing high level women's football will be fully included and supported during the coming seasons with Chichester City Ladies and Girls FC.

The club has been through a lot over the last few months with all the changes that have happened all I can say is that we finally have a place where we can call home. Thank you to Selsey FC for accommodating us and supporting the club through the journey that we have been on - I can safely say we are definitely in the right place now. The club have an amazing committee and backroom staff that are dedicated and passionate that women's football will continue to grow.

The club also have dedicated managers and coaches that give up a lot of their spare time to ensure matches and training are run efficiently, without these people the club would not survive. Also to all the backroom staff, media, and photography. A huge thank you to you all, it is so very much appreciated.

Our club starts with our little Wildcats who are our youngest from age 4 they train on Saturday Mornings at the University of Chichester, 9-10 am. Please contact Hannah Humphries (Head of Youth): 07740065488 if you would like your girl to join.

Our youth section consist of 5 teams:

  • Under 11’s
  • Under 13’s Whites
  • Under 13’s Greens
  • Under 15’s Whites
  • Under 15’s Greens

Our senior section consist of a Development Squad and First Team for women aged 16 and over. That is a lot of green and white playing football at weekends!

All I can say is that I can’t wait to get started in my new role!

Samantha Ashton
Chair of Chichester City Ladies and Girls FC
