Chairman insists “time was right”

COLERAINE TV spoke with Colin McKendry and Alison Nicholl after the Ladies team was renamed as Coleraine FC Women…

The change will see the Bannsiders move away from consistently referring to our men’s team as the ‘first’ team, acknowledging the ever-growing status of women’s football, and Coleraine within it.

The news got the green light by Chairman, Colin McKendry, who insisted that it was great to see the club integrate the women’s team into the overall structure, as well as creating a pathway for young girls to represent the Bannsiders in the future.

Coleraine FC Women’s Manager, Alison Nicholl, remarked that the move will help expand her player pool as she gets set to lead her side in the NIFWA Championship this summer.
