BWFCL A League Secretary
I have been league Secretary for the BWFCL since Sep 2018. I’ve always had a passion for football coming from a football loving family (up the gas!) I played throughout my childhood and teenage years but then like many others stopped! I found the Misfits FC nearly 5 years ago and haven’t looked back! I absolutely love playing in this league and now helping organise it too- it’s a lot of work but also a lot of fun! It’s really amazing to watch the league continue to grow and bring women from all over Bristol together with our main thing in common- playing football!!
BWFCL Development League Secretary
I've been playing footy for 3.5 years (having started at the tender age of 39!) and I LOVE IT! I play in defence or in goal for The Bristols and Team Brave, and I loved managing the World 7s last year. For me, the BWFCL is all about fun, fitness and friends and empowering women of all abilities and ages by playing 'the beautiful game.' Please contact me for all info or questions regarding the Development League next season.
League Treasurer, Insurance Administrator, FA Affiliation
After not playing football since I was 10 years old I joined the Easton Cowgirls at 30 and have never looked back. I’ve been playing in BWFCL since it started and joined the core committee after the first couple of seasons. It’s been truly amazing to see it grow from a couple of teams to where we are now. I’m very excited about the future of BWFCL.
Full time Guru!
Currently I oversee all things fulltime-league.thefa.com making sure we have an up to date league table, fixture list, plater stats etc. I've been playing in the league since it was founded in 2012 but started helping out with some of the league organisation stuff in the Summer of 2013.
At the heart of our league is a core team of women footballers who just want to have a good time playing football and provide that opportunity for everyone. The passion of everyone involved has created an amazing community within the league and it's been a privilege watching it grow and being a part of it.

I started watching football when I was a kid & I’ve loved it ever since. But unfortunately when I was at school, girls weren’t allowed to play football.
Two years ago I decided to try out playing football & I joined the Bristols. Despite my total lack of playing experience & ability, I was warmly welcomed by the girls and made to feel part of the team. The Bristols has been a big part of my life for the past 2 years & I’ve made some great friends as a result.
I love playing in the BWFCL. If I’m not playing, you’ll find me supporting from the sidelines, often taking photos for the league 😊
I started being involved in football over the last 6 years joining BWFCL and playing for the Misfits who have become more like a family to me! I have over 3 years of coaching experience in girls football and my confidence grows year to year! Meeting a bunch of amazing women who are now friends for life!
I have always loved football and played in my younger years. After a prolonged gap I wanted to get back into playing and created the team ‘The Lilies’ to enter into the BWFCL last season.
After a successful year we are now growing and looking to put an additional team into the new season, showing the need and want for women’s football.
I have taken on the role of Social Secretary as part of the leagues core team, and my great enjoyment of having a beverage or two around different venues in Bristol will play a pivotal part in the leagues social gatherings!

Co-founder of BWFCL who has recently hung her boot's up for 2020.
I was well happy to stumble across the Easton Cowgirls football team jut after they formed 17 years ago! I had wanted to play girls football in my youth but there wasn't any teams to join.
However, yet again frustrated by the lack of suitable playing opportunities for women; myself and Julia Williams (Misfits FC) founded the BWFCL in 2012.
Now 8 years later the BWFCL has blossomed into a multi divisional league of female football teams run by a fantastic core group of players from various teams.
After 6 years of being the boss! I've taken a back seat so I can spend more time warmining up my old lady legs before a match! #still playing
