Morecambe FC Women

New home confirmed for Shrimps Women

20 June 2023

Morecambe FC Women's home games will be played at Galgate FC's Recreation Ground during the 2023/24 campaign.

In what was their inaugral season since the partnership with Morecambe FC was formed, the Shrimps Women finished seventh with nine wins, two draws and 11 losses.

Throughout the campaign, the team played their home games at Bay Leadership Academy with the exception of two wins at the Mazuma Stadium.

Manager Ben Anderson says playing at The Recreation Ground is a big step forward for all involved.

"The pitch is arguably one of the best pitches around the area, the ground staff look it so well, it looks great all season long," he said.

"Everything about it is professional which is how we want to feel, it's nice to have a base to play the majority of our home games for the upcoming season.

"In terms of support, it's massive because everyone knows where we are going to be, meaning it'll be easier for people wanting to come down and watch us play in tier six of the women's football pyramid.

"The move can really help with recruitment as we'll be able to attract players from different areas such as Preston and Blackpool. As a club, we want to push on and having Galgate FC as a home ground, I feel we can do even more than before; its a fantastic facility for both players and fans alike, and i cant wait to get started there."

Galgate FC Club Secretary, Phil Mitchell, spoke of his delight at welcoming Morecambe FC Women to their new home.

He said: "We are delighted Morecambe FC Woman have chosen us, this is another sign of how far we as a club and our facilities have come.

"Galgate FC is also looking to support the growth of the women's game with further recruitment of junior female players and coaches to the club, and this will go a long way in supporting our goals."

Fixtures for the women's 2023/24 season will be confirmed in a matter of weeks, and will be announced in full through our website and social media channels once released.
