LONDON : Promotion chasing Tottenham Hotspur Ladies will become Tottenham Hotspur Women from the next season, following a trend in the game as clubs seek to modernise in a new era.

Spurs, managed by Karen Hills, are second in the revamped FA Women's Championship and can secure automatic promotion to the top-tier Super League by beating Aston Villa away on Wednesday.

The name change follows similar similar decisions by fellow London sides Arsenal Women and Chelsea Women in dropping the world ''Ladies''.

Tottenham also announced that they have appointed  Heather Cowan in the role of Head of Women's Football.

Cowan undertook a similar role at Birmingham City Women. ''I am thrilled to have joined Spurs at a time when women's Football is really starting to flourish.

The club has a wonderful opportunity to create an exciting future and a lasting legacy in the women's  game and I'm looking forward to playing a part in that,'' she said in a club statement.

''We shall be working hard to desktop a structure and culture that enables talented female footballers to thrive. We're thriving for continued success and build something that fans, players and staff are all proud to be part of.'' [Agencies]
