Our History

Rugby Town Ladies FC was brought together as a team/club in the 1990 season, run independently for a considerable number of seasons.

At the start of season 2006/07 Rugby Town Ladies FC joined forces with Rugby Town Girls FC, to promote the growth of girls & women’s football within the Borough of Rugby. The clubs now unite providing football from under 8s junior girls teams through to senior ladies football.

Rugby Town Girls FC all female club dates back to the start of the 1990/1991 season when it was formed from a single team of 14 players. It has continued to grow & develop to the present day with around 90 playing members comprising of groups from U6 to senior ladies.

With the backing of Birmingham County F.A. & Rugby Borough, we were the first all female football club in the area.

In the 2003/04 season, the club was in partnership with Rugby Town Junior F.C, Rugby Town F.C. and Rugby Borough Council for the growth & development of football opportunities for all. Declan Whelan, club chairman from 1999 to 2009 worked with the FA to gain the FA Charter Standard award and the club has now grown to be part of the community group of clubs in Rugby since 2008.

Season upon season the club goes from strength to strength with a continued increase in female players and with the valued support of parents, club officials and sponsors. The aim is to ultimately bring top flight women’s football to Rugby but also to ensure that anyone irrespective of age or ability has the opportunity to play football and have FUN!
