Newcastle United Women announces West Allotment Women as official club partners
Newcastle United Women are delighted to confirm West Allotment Celtic Women’s team as club partners after reaching a new agreement to boost women’s football in the region.
The partnership will see the two Tyneside clubs sharing their experience on the pitch, with United players returning from injury made available to West Allotment as they step up their rehabilitation.
The Magpies will also scout for fresh talent from the West Allotment squad, which is already producing rising stars of the sport.
Since West Allotment Women’s inception just two seasons ago, the team rapidly secured a cup win and promotion to the North East Regional Women’s League.
The partnership will be put into practice this weekend as United skipper Brooke Cochrane makes her debut for West Allotment playing away at Prudhoe on Sunday afternoon.
Cochrane has not featured for Newcastle since sustaining an anterior cruciate ligament injury 11 months ago.
But following surgery, physiotherapy and a rigorous period of rehabilitation and training, Magpies full back Cochrane will become the first player to benefit from the link-up between the two clubs as she continues to work towards full fitness.
Newcastle United Women General Manager, Lisa Bell, said: “We are delighted that West Allotment Celtic Women’s team are partnering with us this season.
“This partnership will give both clubs a great opportunity to work, train and play together and we look forward to continue building the relationship between our two teams.”
