Statement - AFC Stockport
Cheshire FA continues to be the highest performing County FA regarding women and girls football participation.
Promoting and supporting the development of women and girls football is, and remains, a top priority.
The FA have a strategic view that counties should be actively encouraged and supported in developing the game within their own boundaries.
We have been made aware of comments made on social media by AFC Stockport which suggest that Cheshire Women’s and Youth League have blocked their proposed move.
This is factually incorrect as it is an FA decision.
Cheshire Women’s and Youth League volunteers continue to work tirelessly in providing opportunities for females to participate in the beautiful game.
The league has received recognition awards based on their continued efforts.
We will be making no further comment at this time.
