Clarke Carlisle: PFA chairman confirms women can join from next season

The announcement will see all players registered for the Women's Super League able to sign up to the PFA - and to attend the traditionally all-male annual PFA awards dinner.

PFA chairman Clarke Carlisle said: "I think it is fantastic that women players will now be able to join the PFA - it has been a long time in coming.

"It's perfect timing that this is announced on International Women's Day.

"It should be good both for female players, who will now have the support of a long-established union, and for the PFA in terms of increased membership."
