Inverurie Loco Works have announced the formation of their new women's team.

It has been the ambition for some time to complete the player pathway at Colony Park.

That next step has been taken and Inverurie Loco Works FC Ladies has been created.

Michelle Wood from Inverurie Loco Works FC Ladies said: "It has been our ambition for some time to complete the player pathway at Colony Park by taking the next step and forming a ladies team.

"From the first meeting with the Locos, it was obvious that both Mike and Graeme have the same enthusiasm and desire as ourselves to make women's football sustainable in the Inverurie area.

"We are delighted to be partnered with a well established and respected Breedon Highland League club that have excellent facilities that will allow our girls to play and develop at Harlaw Park.

"We are confident this is the beginning of a long and successful relationship for the club."

He added: "It has been our ambition for the past five years to introduce a women's team to Inverurie Loco Works FC as part of our ongoing commitment to being an all inclusive football club.

"We were delighted when Michelle and Stuart Wood brought this proposal to us and with their professionalism, enthusiasm and commitment this was an easy decision for the club to accept."

The team is looking for experienced players aged 18 and over to complement the existing squad for the 2023 season. Training will start in October 2022.
