Bradford side Athletico, who have changed their name to Route One Rovers Women, were involved in the Portugal Summer Football Cup last weekend, where teams from around the world met at the Estádio Universitário de Lisboa.

Saturday’s group games in the seven-a-side competition saw Route One 13–3 win against local side Peppa’s Friends, following that up with a 2–2 draw with ShowDjiBola.

The following day, they went on to qualify for the final after topping the group unbeaten with three wins and a draw.

Sunday’s final against Lisbon’s Lowest League Ladies saw a well-deserved 4–1 win for the Bradford-based side.

Meanwhile, Bradford (Park Avenue) Ladies wrapped up their last-ever season with their annual awards night.

This was a bittersweet occasion marking not only the end of an incredible season but also a new chapter as they become Wyke Wanderers Ladies.

Lou Molinari was Club Woman of the Season, Maizie Robinson the Most Improved and Orla Durkin the Young Player of the Season.

Emily McNulty was the big winner, taking home both the Coaches’ and the prestigious Players’ Player awards.

Moving over to the West Riding County Women’s Football League, and they have announced some changes for next season.

The unpopular double-bill matches have been discontinued, with all divisions now limited to a maximum of 10 teams.

Joining next season’s County Premier Division are Farsley Celtic Women, Forge Way Firsts and County First champions Ilkley Town Firsts.

Unfortunately, this has meant that there is no room for Thackley, who have been placed in County First, much to the club’s displeasure, along with Brighouse Sports.

As for Farsley, they have announced the appointment of their new manager Izzy Roads, who will be assisted by Conor Cowan and Jahsiah Donaldson in the dugout.

 The side will face five pre-season clashes ahead of the new season, with all fixtures at away venues while renovations and upgrades are made to The Citadel.

Ilkley Town’s Izzy Armstrong not only received an award for scoring the most goals in County First last term, but she was also declared First Division Player of the Season.

A reminder that anyone interested in joining any of the local teams should contact them directly via their social media channels.

The new County Third Division will include Eccleshill United and Queensbury Celtic.

Unfortunately there’s no place for Tyersal, who are to compete in County Fourth next season.

There was some good news for them though, as their hard-working defender Bex Ogden was awarded Third Division Player of the Season.

The team are back in action this Sunday, with a pre-season friendly against Crossley Belles Reds (venue TBC).

Unfortunately, Bradford United (Phœnix) have dropped out of the league, but they will at least continue their girls’ section.

Bradford (Park Avenue) are also to start a new girls’ section, with applications currently being invited for a Head of Girls’ football.

No less than 16 new sides will take part in the WRCWFL next season, necessitating two new divisions, 5A and 5B.

Among those new teams are: Batley United, Brighouse Town Development, Crossley Belles Whites, Eldwick Lionesses and Salts.
