Jersey club St Peter plan to restart their women's team from next season, potentially bringing the number of sides in the Jersey FA's Women's League to six.
The club already has an interested sponsor and has appointed Ciaran Pack, a qualified Level 2 coach with a degree in Sports Therapy, as manager. Ciaran coached with the Blackpool FC Ladies team for two seasons, before returning to Jersey in 2020.
St Peter are seeking both experienced players and enthusiastic and committed newcomers and are inviting anyone interested to make early contact with Ciaran either by email - firstname.lastname@example.org - or phone 07456 002044.
A statement from the club read: "St Peter have first class facilities both on and off the pitch and intend to fully embrace the ladies game. As soon as the team reaches a competitive standard, the club will seek entry into off-island County or National competitions. St Peter remain the only Channel Island team to have played in the English Ladies FA Cup which they did for three seasons from 2004 until 2007.
"Ladies football is now the fastest growing sport worldwide, its status and standards has risen in recent years and nowhere faster than the English game. St Peter FC has strong connections with professional clubs and hopes to use those connections to ensure that talented players who aspire to playing the game at a higher level, are given the opportunity to impress those clubs.
"The return of St Peter FC next season will be a major boost for the ladies game as a whole. Older girls 16 and above and ladies, both experienced players and those who believe they could be attracted to the game, are encouraged to make contact and judge for themselves."
St Peter's inclusion, and the potential for relaxed travel restrictions by the start of the 2021/22 season, means a CI Women's League involving Guernsey Ladies could feature seven teams. St Peter last ran a women's side in 2017/18, when they finished third in the table behind St Paul's and St Lawrence.
