Cambridge United created a new Women’s Football Council to further integrate the team into the club.
The structural changes now fully bind Cambridge United Women to the club, with the aim of advancing the women’s team.
Jenny Horsfield will chair the board, while Graham Daniels, Christoph Loch, Vicky Hoover and Liz Pamplin will also be on the panel.
CEO Alex Tunbridge and sporting director Ben Strang will serve in law roles.

The club hope the move will raise the profile of the women’s team, with the U’s planning to host more of the team’s matches at the Abbey in the future.
“It’s an exciting time for women’s and women’s football across the country and here at Cambridge United,” said Horsfield.
“I am delighted with the formation of this new Board which presents a wonderful mix of new faces and industry experience along with those who have been at the heart of Cambridge United Women for many years.
“Levels of professionalism within the club have increased over the past few years, and with this new board in place, we believe the women’s team will only continue to grow and improve.
“Women’s and women’s football has a huge impact in the community, and we really want to make sure Cambridge United are at the forefront of innovation and inspiration for local girls and women who love the game.”
The Women’s Football Board, which feeds directly into the Cambridge United Board, will hold its first meeting on Monday June 6.
