Women’s DS

The Women’s ‘Development Squad’ was set up at the start of the 2020/21 season after the club created a partnership with both BHASVIC Women’s Academy and Withdean Youth. As a club, we felt it was important to ensure there was a pathway for girls wanting to play senior football. The link with Withdean Youth allowed for this pathway to continue from their U16 girls team straight in to the Saltdean United Women’s Development Squad. In addition to this, the Tigers also formed an academy with BHASVIC which has seen players play for the college side and represent Saltdean on a Sunday.

The DS made history in the 2023/24 season by winning the treble, only losing one game all season. The young Tigers dominated the Sussex Premier League winning the division by 12 points, before adding the Sussex FA Challenge Trophy and then the League Cup. It was a fantastic year for the girls which saw them getting promoted to Tier 6, moving to the London and South East Division 1.

The key aim of the DS is to support the first team and gain players from the U18’s JPL to help them progress in to senior football. In the 23/24 season, five players from the DS made their debut for the first team which was a key aim for the coaching staff.
