Girls' and Women's Football
Southampton FC Girls' & Women's programme comprises of the Tier 1 Plus licensed FA Girls Regional Talent Club (Under 10s - Under 16s) and a Women's First Team and Development Squad. This enables talented female players to develop within the club's environment with the aim of turning potential into excellence on and off the pitch.
We host a Women's First Team who currently play in Tier 4 (FA Women's National League) and a Development Squad to support the transition of players from the Girls' programme (who play in the FA Women's National Reserve League). This is all led by the Head of Girls and Women's Football - Marieanne Spacey-Cale.
