North Ferriby Football Club provide new home for Hull City Ladies
The newly formed North Ferriby Football Club are today delighted to confirm a brand new partnership with Hull City Ladies FC who will now play at The Dransfield Stadium.
As a result of this new deal, The Villagers will host all of ‘The Tigresses’ home games from the start of the 2019/20 campaign, which will kick-off with an attractive pre-season friendly against a Manchester United Women XI on Sunday 4th August.
Les Hare, North Ferriby Chairman, said: “We are delighted to announce Hull City Ladies will now play their FA Womans’ National League home fixtures from our Dransfield Stadium home. It is important our club embraced this great opportunity to help promote the fastest growing participation sport amongst girls at the highest level amidst our own local community. Girls’ football in North Ferriby has sadly been decimated under successive regimes during the last four years and so our commitment to redevelop from within and support our own Ladies team with a progressive youth development programme can only take inspiration from this union between our clubs”.
Danny Johnson of Hull City Ladies, said: “We’re extremely pleased to enter in to this partnership with North Ferriby FC. This is such a great opportunity for Hull City Ladies FC as unfortunately we are not affiliated to the men’s club yet we are progressing through support from fanastic supporters and businesses in the region. We are the highest ranked club in the region playing at Tier 3 and The Dransfield Stadium exceeds all our requirements in order to progress further. We have developed a fantastic relationship with North Ferriby FC already and it’s really exciting to work with a club who like ourselves, are about to enter in to a new chapter – we are excited to be joining them on our mutual journeys. I would like to thank Les Hare, Martin Lauer, North Ferriby Parish Council, Key Partners of our club and everyone associated with North Ferriby FC and Hull City Ladies FC in making this happen”
