Durham Cestria currently play in the FA Women’s National League – Northern Division One.
Cestria Girls were established in 2007 and, after some success as a junior grassroots club, they entered senior football after a successful merger with South Durham – who themselves were County Cup winners on a few occasions – becoming South Durham Cestria LFC in 2012.
That same season County Cup success followed promotion to the Women’s Premier League. However, after a successful bid to join the new FA Women’s Super League with Durham University, the club simply became Durham Women FC.
Several players have gone on to play in the FA Womens Super League and at international level who have won the County Cup with Durham – most notably Jen Jennings, Beth Hepple, Lauren Briggs and Zoe Ness.
