Poole Town Ladies was originally founded in the late 1980s, competing in the Dorset Women's League. In 2007, the ladies merged with another local club, Ashdown Rovers but retained the Poole Town name. The merger enabled the club to run two ladies teams as well as a number of girls teams and become one of the most successful clubs in Dorset.
Poole Town Ladies are one of the few ever-present teams to compete every season in the Dorset Women's League and this is pivotal to the progression and development of all of our female players.
This talented group of Ladies are currently sitting at the top of the South West Regional Women's Football League table (Eastern Division) with nine wins out of eleven played so far.
Their most recent game was against local rivals, Weymouth. Always a fantastically competitive match, the Poole Town Ladies came away with a convincing 3-0 win to leave them guaranteed to be top of the table at Christmas.
They play their home matches at the County Ground, Hamworthy and always provide entertainment and excellent football if you want to head down and support them.
This impressive team plays in the very competitive Dorset Ladies League and sit fourth in the table, with games in hand on the teams around them in a tightly placed league, so all to play for!
The strength and depth of this squad is of a very high level and integration with the First Team is very much achievable for all players.
