Newcastle sign agreement with University
 Women's Football News 28 Jun 2010
Newcastle United Women's Football Club and the University of Northumbria are pleased to announce the signing of a formal 'Partner Club' agreement for women's football. 
Both sides have agreed to work together to further the development of women's football and plan to co-operate on a wide variety of player and coach development.
An exciting aspect of the partnership will be the availability of up to four scholarships for talented women footballers to study at Northumbria University and at the same time pursue their footballing careers by playing for a top women's team. Successful applicants for scholarships will be eligible to play for both the University's BUCS football team and on a weekend for Newcastle United WFC in the FA Women's Premier League.
Ian Elvin, Director of Sport at Northumbria University said, "This is a great opportunity for both parties to work together to further the development of women's football in Newcastle and its surrounding area. It is great to see that NUWFC have ambitious plans to develop, which will help support and encourage the thousands of local girls who are playing and watching football each week. Many will have ambitions to follow in the ladies footsteps and pull on the famous Black and White shirt in the years to come.
"With our support, we hope to encourage many talented local ladies to stay in the region and study in Newcastle and play their football in the famous Black and White of Newcastle United."
Phil Eadon, Chairman of Newcastle United Women's Football Club, added: "I am delighted to have reached agreement with Northumbria University for NUWFC to be the official 'Partner Club for women's football. We have used the University's excellent facilities at the Coach Lane Sports Campus at Benton for over three years.
"This partnership is a logical extension of our co-operation. At last we will be able to offer our talented local ladies a choice other than having to move away to attend an American University to combine their studies with playing football at a high level.
"Women's and girls football is one of the fastest growing sports in the country. Support from organisations such as Northumbria University is a valuable addition to not only the club but also to the overall development and success of women's football in the region. We look forward to developing a successful and long association with the University."
