Millwall Lionesses can announce their sister club partnership with Headcorn Football Club for the 2017/18 season.
Headcorn is a small village in the Weald of Kent. The village was established to support the farms that surround the area. With the coming of a mainline connection to London a commuting community is growing, and development continues.
Headcorn Football Club was established in 1896. It is an independent self-supporting club that owns its own ground and clubhouse. Five seasons ago the club had two adult teams and just one junior team. It began a conscious effort to attract new players and now has seven junior teams and a development program for young new players. It is now looking to expand the number of pitches to cope with the growth, and to develop the clubhouse.
This season the club has introduced the first all-girl team, the Kittyhawkes. They are enjoying their first season in the Kent Girls and Ladies Football League and we hope to attract enough players to expand two or more teams next year. The club is pleased to join the Sister club program with Millwall Lionesses and look forward to developing and expanding girls football together.
We look forward to welcoming Headcorn Football Club to St Paul’s Sports Ground on Sunday 28th January when Millwall Lionesses host Durham Women in a top half of the table clash.
