Women’s team for Bulls?

JERSEY BULLS have revived their ambitions to form a women’s team and have called on Island sports fans to help make their dream a reality.

The club announced yesterday, on International Women’s Day, that they wish to add female fixtures to their schedule for the 2023/24 football season but admitted their plans are reliant on sufficient sponsorship being secured.

The latest push for progress follows a similar bid in November 2021, when Bulls floated the idea of entering a side into the Women’s National League System. At that stage, a memorandum was sent to the four clubs in the Jersey Women’s League to outline their proposal – which included safeguards for the grassroots game – but the plans then stalled.

Rumours regarding potential entries into cup competitions also circulated in 2022.

Bulls officials have said their current drive for development can ‘create a more inclusive and diverse sporting community’, but they are calling on businesses and individuals to ‘help make this vision a reality’.

‘Jersey Bulls FC is committed to creating a sustainable and successful women’s football team, but unfortunately this will not be possible unless we are able to raise enough sponsorship money,’ their statement read.

A similar call resulted in the club entering an under-18 team into the FA Youth Cup this season, although they were later forced to withdraw their first-team from the Combined Counties Premier Challenge Cup due to concerns over travel costs.
