Bolton Wanderers Women Football Club (/ˈbltən/ BOHL-tən) is an English women's football club based in Greater Manchester, England. Founded in 1983, they currently play in the North West Regional Division One North, with home games played at the Eddie Davies Football Academy.[1]


Bolton Wanderers Women Football Club was formed in 1983. The club previously represented Bolton Wanderers, but parted ways with the club in 2020.[2] However, on 8 March 2024, the club announced that the Womens Team would be fully integrated into club operations with the long-term aim of turning the team semi-professional, taking it from the hands of Community Trust for the start of the 2024/25 season.[3]

Bolton won the 2016–17 North West Regional Premier Division, and were promoted to the FA Women's National League Division One North.[4] In June 2017, Chris Knights was appointed manager,[5] and the club moved to the Kensite Stadium.[6] Bolton enjoyed a period of relative success following promotion, reaching the third round of the 2018–19 FA Cup, losing 2–0 to Cardiff City,[7] and reaching the semi-finals of the 2018–19 FA Women's National League Cup, losing 1–0 to Crawley Wasps.[8]

On 19 August 2022, Jordan Morris and Lee Atkinson were announced as managers.[9] Atkinson later parted ways with the club. Bolton won the 2021–22 Lancashire County Premier Division,[10] and were promoted to the North West Regional Division One North.
