Sheffield FC Ladies were formed in 2003.  Starting at the very bottom of the women’s football pyramid, they have achieved three promotions in the past five seasons. This phenomenal rise has seen the Ladies FC achieve status in the FA Women’s Premier League.  Ranked as the highest women’s team in Sheffield, they are second only in South Yorkshire to Doncaster Rovers Belles.
