The club are delighted to announce that Frome Town Ladies have been renamed Frome Town Women, following the launch of our new crest.
This would see the Women’s team align themselves to many other high profile teams making the switch over the last few seasons and to the FA naming of the Women’s leagues.
Manager Justin Paget commented, “This season has been as huge success with remaining unbeaten and promotion. But success is not just on the field, but we’ve been working hard to reintegrated into the wider club, with all our home games being played at Badgers Hill and all our matches featured prominently on the main club website. With the crest change this gave us an important opportunity to continue to show that Frome Town Women is a forward thinking and modern team and we continue to put Frome on the map in regards to Women’s football.
Frome Town Women Captain Steph Isaacson explained, “the crest and name change has come at a really good time for us, it gives us the identity of unity with Frome Town FC but also as Frome Town Women double winners. New League, new crest, new name, same spirit, more determination"
The change might lead to people asking why? However the growing feeling around the label “ladies” is that it’s old fashioned and even suggesting that the use of Ladies football has negative connotations and often associated with out dated views. Eleven teams in the new Women’s Super League have now transitioned over from Ladies to Women and it’s a trend that is not likely to end.
Frome Town FC and Frome Town Women FC will also share the same first team home jersey design. As the club continues to pull in the same direction to drive the success of Women’s football in Frome. If you are interested in joining our Women's teams or helping to support the Women's team get in touch!
