Our girls football program is once again picking up steam after the addition of our Sale United Ladies open age team last season!
We have entered a team into the South Manchester Girls Junior Football League at u12 for 17/18 season and will be sending players to their u9 affiliation football too!
Training and games are weekly and we look forward to welcoming girls to Sale United over the 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.
