Margate FC Women are a grassroots affiliate of Margate FC but are almost entirely self-funded, not receiving significant financial backing from the parent club. They presently compete in the South East Counties Premier Division – the highest tier of the English Football pyramid of any football club in Thanet this season. Average home attendance at Hartsdown Park is just north of 100, and away travel fans average between 20 and 30 at every match. Last season, they finished 3rd in the table and progressed to the final of the League Cup, playing in front of 500+ fans at The Gallagher Stadium in Maidstone. This season, we are hoping to win the league cup and secure promotion to the sixth tier of English Football. Beyond that, the team provides a fantastic programme for player development, strategic planning, nurturing of young athletes, & building relationships within the local community while also aiming to level the playing field for young girls interested in sport.
