The new line-up for the 2023/2024 season in the London & South East Regional Women’s League Division One North has been confirmed.
Joining our women’s first team in Tier 6 are Hounslow, who we have famously beaten twice in the Women’s FA Cup. They’ve dropped down a couple of levels having struggled at a high level for a few seasons so should be ones to watch.
We’ve also played another newcomer before – Actonians Reserves – in a John Greenacre Trophy semi-final win in May 2022. They have been promoted having won the Greater London Women’s Football League last season.
Ashmount Leigh have also been promoted into our division as the South East Counties Womens Football League champions.
Camden & Islington United are the final new entrants. They were previously known as New London Lionesses and have been relegated from Tier 5.
We lose Dorking Wanderers, promoted as champions after a ding-dong battle with Brentford; relegated Leatherhead; and Watford Development, who have been transferred sideways to a different regional division.
Dulwich Hamlet Reserves resigned before the AGM but have since been readmitted, meaning our division returns 12 teams next season.
The new season will begin on August 20 and needs to end by May 26. There will be a break after December 17’s game until January 7. There will also be at least one midweek game, against local rivals Hackney Women.
The first batch of fixtures have just been announced… see the list here.
