We will be operating a cashless system across all of our 13 County Cup finals this year. Supporters can pay by card at the turnstiles. No tickets will be sold in advance of the games. Once again, we have taken the decision to hand all under-16s free admission when attending with a paying adult.

All of this season’s match programmes will be digital only, meaning there will be no wastage of printed paper at any of our finals. Spectators will be able to view, read and download a copy of each matchday programme from StaffordshireFA.com.

This means that, wherever you are in the world, you will be able to read the latest edition of the matchday programme right from your fingertips.


A women’s team representing Stoke City was formed in the summer of 2001.

The inaugural season in the West Midlands League Division One ended in success as the team- who were known as Stoke City Ladies for their first 18 years in existence- finished third in the table and gained promotion via the play-offs. 

A first final was reached in 2007, which they won, and they have now lifted the trophy 15 times.

Promotion to the Midland Women’s Combination was secured in 2009 as the team finished as Champions, whilst an historic treble was earned in 2013 with the Ladies scooping the league championship, League Cup and County Cup.

Currently led by Head Coach Warren Holmes, the team moved to their new home at Community Drive in the summer of 2016 and the Club continues to make positive strides both on and off the pitch.

The current ladies team was established in 2015, where we entered our first season in the Open Age Staffordshire County League Tier 1. The Ladies cruised through their first season in the Staffordshire County League, topping the table with a match spare. The oldest player was just 17!

The ladies spent 2 seasons in the Regional Premier Division, which was largely disrupted due to coronavirus. So far Leek have held their own in this league, sitting in 5th place and they have proved that they can beat anyone on their day.

They are currently on an unbeaten run of 6 matches and are in great forms, and this has confirmed their return to the national league next season.
