RACING Club Warwick and Leamington Lions Girls and Ladies have joined forces ahead of the 2024/25 season.

The partnership will see the ladies adult team, who won the FA Challenge Vase last season, play their home games at the Church Farm Brewery Ground next season in the West Midlands Regional League.

Leamington have the largest girls set-up in the area with a Wildcats section and teams from under-8s through to under-18s as well as their ladies and development adult teams.

Warwick chairman, Gary Vella, said: “As a club we have to ensure that female football was well represented and that there are good opportunities locally, and with this partnership, and with the new building works allowing us to grow our girls participation, we felt this move to join with an already well established club who can start to utilise our facilities, was the right move for the whole of Warwick District.

“We are very excited with this partnership and looking forward to seeing many girls and ladies reach new heights.”

Leamington’s Paul O’Rafferty added: “Leamington Lions Girls and Ladies Football Club are delighted to announce a partnership with Racing Club Warwick, offering the girls a fantastic opportunity.

“Racing Club have great facilities allowing the Lions to continue to grow. As the biggest girls’ club in the area, offering football opportunities for players of all abilities this partnership will help us grow both on and off the field, supporting us in achieving our goals and aims with our development plan and the new education programme set to commence in 2025.”
