Leek Town Ladies
Playing in the Midlands Division, the Leek Town Ladies are currently competing in the Step 4 of the Women’s National League. They are currently 10th within the league. The history of the club goes back to the 1940’s where the team went through the Staffordshire County League without a singular loss in the years 1949 and 1950. Upon moving into the Manchester League, they had won the championship on their first attempt. Under the guidance of Ian Smith, Leek Town Ladies have edged past two tough opponents on the way to the final of this competition. They beat Eccleshall Women by two goals to one in the Quarter Final, followed by a Semi-Final victory over Newcastle Town.

Sporting Khalsa Women
In 2004 the founder and player Kelly Williams set up a women’s side in the 
Walsall area following interest from a group of local players. The team was originally called Cottage Ladies after the sponsor but after a season changed to FC Reedswood after the area and park the players trained it. This season the club have reached their highest ever points tally in the FA Women’s National League Division 1 and hope to secure maximum points in their final two games.
