We're in the midsts of Women in Sport Week 2016, and take the chance to catch up with the progress of Chesterfield Ladies FC and their sides' start to the season.

The first team have come out of the blocks quickly, recording a number of big wins, and chairman Keith Jackson fills us in on their recent progress.

"In terms of how we're doing this season the first team have had some good results, they won one game 12-0 the week before last, that was an excellent result and things are looking up," he said.

"We're got a squad of 20 players coming to train as a group now, which is all really positive. Over the last three years, since I became involved with the club, there were three teams - now there are six teams,

Chesterfield Ladies have their own Twitter page, where all of the teams' fixtures are tweeted every Friday, there is a Facebook page and then there's the side's website as well. 

All the teams play their home matches on Highfield Park, within walking distance of the Proact, in the Sheffield and Hallamshire District League against sides such as Sheffield United, Barnsley and Doncaster Belles.

Supporters are welcome along to watch games, which take place on Saturday mornings for all the teams from the under 18s and below, while the first team play on Sunday afternoons.

The club also have a host of teams for younger players, with Jackson excited by the development being seen at the junior levels.

"With the 18s, they've just got started," he said. "It's good for them to be playing in some competitive games and some of their players are playing the first team as well, which shows the progress they're making.

"In the under 15s, 14s and 13s have all been up and running for a couple of seasons now and doing well, while the under 12s are a brand new team for this season. They also have a brand new coach and they're doing phenomonally well.

"They've won all of their games so far, which is great for a group of girls who have never played as a team before. It's meant that it's been a really good start to the season as a whole for the club."
