West Ham United Ladies Football Club announced today that they will be moving their home fixtures for the 2015/16 season to AFC Hornchurch’s Bridge Avenue Stadium in Upminster.
The ladies are moving away from Aveley FC’s Mill Field Stadium after one season with the Isthmian League Division One club.
Stephen Hunt, Joint Chairman of West Ham United Ladies FC said: “A month into our new role and we are delighted to make this announcement. Colin McBride at AFC Hornchurch has made us very welcome and we look forward to playing here and taking the club forward entertainment and squad improvements, will draw a crowd towards the Women’s Super League.”
Ladies first team manager and former Hammer Julian Dicks said: “I’m pleased that we’ve sealed the move to Hornchurch because it’s a step forward in terms of facilities for players, staff and fans. We are working hard this summer to prepare for next season and it was important for us to find a nice, local ground that we can now call our new home.”
