Welcome to Knaresborough Town AFC Women's Pages


What a fantastic time to be involved in the women’s game!

Knaresborough Town Women were established at the start of 2022-23 season and competed in the West Riding County Women's League Division Four. With a 100% win record in season 22-23, Town were promoted to Division Two for the 2023-24 season and went on to win the WRCWFL Division Two title, and in doing so, won back to back promotions.

Our aim is simple – we plan to develop a top-class Centre of Football Excellence for women in the Knaresborough and Harrogate areas and we want to encourage as many players as possible to participate in “the beautiful game”.

The core principle at Knaresborough Town Women will be to gather together keen and enthusiastic female footballers, provide them with top quality coaching support, with the very best facilities, all to take place within a supportive, yet challenging environment. 

In return, all we ask is that our players listen to the coaches and do their very best both on and off the field.

Individual personal development, through sport, is our overriding philosophy – though it’s fair to say we also enjoy winning!
