Our u12 girls football program was launched this season after picking up steam last year with the addition of our girls ‘drop in sessions’ and the debut season for our Sale United Ladies open age team!
We have entered a u12 team into the South Manchester Girls Junior Football League for 17/18 season and will be looking to add a u10 team for the 18/19 season!
Training and games are weekly and we look forward to welcoming u10 – u12 girls to Sale United over this season!

A brief history of girls football at SUFC:
Sale United is proud to be the first club in Trafford to have fielded an ‘all girls’ side at Under 10 in the Timperley & District Mixed Gender League in 2001. At the time several eye-brows were raised and the team experienced some heavy losses. However at the end of that season we managed to arrange a friendly with a girls’ team from Northwich and our girls scored an emphatic win.
Sale United formulated several Girls’ teams and were inaugural members of the South Manchester Girls League where they enjoyed much success.
Significantly, Lauren Dowdy, one of the coaches assisting with this program, was a member of that first team from 2001, so has a keen interest in ensuring Sale United once again has its own teams competing regularly.
It is also worthy of note that two girls who started their football with Sale United are now part of the Manchester City ladies teams.
