The team formerly known as Brighouse Town Women may now be called Halifax FC Women, but they will not be playing in the town.

Instead, they have confirmed that their new home ground will be at Clayborn, which is where Liversedge's men's team have played since World War Two.

Halifax, formerly Brighouse, play their football in the third tier of the women's game, the FA Women's National League Northern Premier Division.

When known as Brighouse, they shared the same ground as the town's men's team, the Yorkshire Payments Stadium.

After the women confirmed partway through last season that they would be rebranding, they temporarily moved home games to Eccleshill United's Mitton Group Stadium.

But with manager Rob Mitchell confirming that Halifax FC are not affiliated with National League side FC Halifax Town, it was always highly unlikely that his team would end up sharing The Shay with the men.

Northern Premier League East Division side Sedge have stepped up to the plate though, with the two clubs hopeful of a long and fruitful groundsharing partnership.

Halifax FC paid special tribute to Sedge director Sharon Osborne for her tireless efforts in getting this deal over the line.

As for the newly-formed Brighouse Town Women, who will start life in the West Riding County Women's Football League, they are holding trials from the start of the next month.

Cara Mahoney will be the first-team player/manager, and is a popular face at the club, having spent seven years at the now-rebranded Halifax side, before leaving to join Altofts.
