TAKE A TIP FROM ME: WATCH OUT FOR AM­BI­TIOUS BRIGHTON

The Football League Paper - - WOMEN'S FOOTBALL WEEKLY -

THE fu­ture is look­ing very bright for Brighton & Hove Al­bion. I was at the Amex on Tues­day night to watch their men’s team move five points clear at the top of the Cham­pi­onship and was in­tro­duced to their Head of Women’s & Girls Football, Tracy Doe (right), at half -time.

The club has in­cred­i­bly am­bi­tious plans for their women’s team, so much so that Tracy said: “Our goal is Cham­pi­ons League football within five years.”

They’re not hang­ing around! The women are fully in­te­grated at the men’s train­ing ground and play their matches on the brand new 3G pitch at the Sus­sex County FA HQ. Brighton are cur­rently top of the FAWPL south and goal­keeper Faye Baker – a teacher who com­mutes from Lon­don to train three times a week – has yet to con­cede in six matches.
