The women’s team will compete in the Liverpool Women’s and Youth U18 League and have also participated in the All Cities Elite Shield (ACES), a national knockout tournament for the best clubs of this level from across the country.
They are led by Mark Hills, well known in the Merseyside area for his coaching roles in women’s football.
Mark is no stranger to Cables either; he himself watched the men’s team as a youngster and is proud to now lead his team as a manager.
He said on the club’s website: “I am very proud of this great time for women’s football and a fantastic chapter in my coaching career.
“We also share the vision, drive and ambition of a football institution like Prescot Cables FC that goes in one direction.
“Our goal of playing in the pyramid of the Women’s National League in the years to come just outlines the ambitions of this great football club at the heart of the community.
” It’s a great feeling to develop the very first women’s team here that the players, coaches and I like. ”
He added, ” The ambition of the chairman and board of directors is to help players and promote women’s football within the community.
Club Co-Chair Matt Roberts said, “This is a proud moment for me too, and it develops our core values and strengthens our diversity and equality within the club.
“The team is already a well-rehearsed team with a very experienced management and coaching team. They have a fantastic can-do attitude and great discipline on and off the field. Not to mention their huge trophy cabinet from all their recent successes.” .
” I would like to thank Mark for his enthusiasm and cooperation in setting up the team and also our jersey manufacturers Kappa and MJM Sports for helping equip the women so that they can keep up with our other teams, the club.
” This is a great success story and I am sure that all of you will join me in welcoming you to the club.
The women’s team will start their season on September 12th and the club will announce their fixtures and how fans can attend their games in due course.
