Norwich City Women FC

Norwich City Women FC play in the FA Women’s National League South East Division 1, Tier 4 of the women’s football pyramid. Last season the club affiliated a Reserve team who play in the Reserve section of the FAWNL.

Norwich City Women FC are the official NCFC Women’s team. Whilst they operate independently there is a close working relationship with both Norwich City Football Club and the Community Sports Foundation (CSF) which is supported by a service level agreement.

Norwich City Women FC, previously named Norwich City Ladies, was formed in 1998 when local rivals Norwich Ladies and Norwich Racers joined together. Norwich City Ladies became Norwich City FC official women’s team and have proudly worn the famous yellow and green since. The club’s two founder members Jackie Thornton and Emma Fletcher, both from CSF, are still very supportive of the club.

Over the years the team has enjoyed great success, winning the League Cup in 2003-04, 2009-10 and 2013-14. The club lifted the Norfolk Women’s County Cup in five consecutive seasons. Following a temporary withdrawal from the competition the club re-entered the competition in 2017-18.

NCWFC work very closely with CSF to create successful pathways for players to progress from the Norwich City Girls Academy, Advanced Coaching Centre (ACC) and the Norwich City CSF 16-18 Football & Education programme.

The management group of Norwich City Women FC is delighted to announce the appointment of Shaun Howes as the team’s new head coach. Shaun has wide-ranging links in the game in this region, and has extensive experience and expertise as a player for Cambridge United, Leyton Orient and Wroxham FC and more recently as Director of Football at Trafford Park. Shaun also works with Norwich City’s Community Sports Foundation as their Workforce Development Manager and a coach with the Norwich Girls Development Programme. Shaun is joined by Steve Kenny as assistant head coach and Megan Todd as player coach. They are supported by backroom staff including a goalkeeper coach, coaches, performance analysts, match day prep and injury prevention coach and a nutritional coach.
