Community Spotlight: A look at Headstone Manor Ladies Football Club

Women’s football has been having a bit of a moment over the last few years and, while this may be seen as a new trend for many, Harrow is, as always, ahead of its time and, in this article, we’re going to be looking at the Headstone Manor Ladies Football Club

Harrow’s finest

Formed in 2007 by Dawn Allwood (former secretary of the Youth Team) Headstone Manor Ladies Football Club is an England Football Accredited Club which competes in competitive fixtures across Greater London.

During the team’s first season, the team played in the U18 Surrey County Women’s League but, the following season, they joined forces with the Greater London Women’s League – and ended the season in an extremely impressive fourth place in the league.

Since that time, the team has gone from strength to strength – going on to win the Women’s Football League Trophy in the 2018 / 2019 season with a 2-1 win over Comets (Home ground Barn Elms Sports Club, Barnes).
