Club History:

Athea Ladies Football Club was founded back in 1990. It caters for girls from U6 all the way up to senior level. In 2018 the G4M&O team was formed, this is a great social outlet for many who had never played football before or who had retired.

 

In the past 30 years the club has been fortunate to have had many talented girls don the maroon and white jersey for the parish. The club has also been very lucky to have had great guidance from some inspirational trainers and hardworking and dedicated club officers.
