Cheshire Female Footballers Lead The Way!

Crewe Ladies FC has won promotion to the FA Nationwide Women's Premier League Northern Division after a successful season that saw them win the Midlands Combination League. This makes it the third Cheshire side to play in the National Premier League with Crewe accompanying the likes of Stockport and Tranmere next season.

England's best known Futsal Club, Tranmere Victoria, saw their women's team follow in the footsteps of the men's team by lifting the Dynamic EuroCup in Hasselt, Belgium at the end of April.
