Curzon Ashton Ladies Football Club is an English women's football club affiliated with Curzon Ashton F.C.. The club were known as Oldham Curzon Ladies Football Club until June 2005. They currently play in the FA Women's Premier League Northern Division. In 2008–09 they finished in tenth place, two points clear of relegation.
The club was founded in 1988 as Oldham Athletic Ladies FC and began playing in the North West women's league in 1990. Several promotions were won over the following seasons and the club set up youth squads. In 1998 they moved to Ashton-under-Lyne and changed their name to Oldham Curzon Ladies FC.
A third-placed finish followed in 1998–99, in the club's first season in the Northern Combination. Then in 1999-00 Oldham Curzon won the Northern Combination and promotion to the Premier League Northern Division.
In 2000–01 Oldham Curzon were runners-up to Leeds United, then they finished third in the following two seasons. In 2003–04 and 2004–05 the club finished lower down the league, before the club name changed to Curzon Ashton Ladies FC in 2005. Performances did not improve and the club flirted with relegation in 2005–06 and dropped back into the Northern Combination in 2007.
Curzon Ashton won the 2007–08 Northern Combination and sealed the title with a 15–0 home win over Hull City Ladies. Mark Bradshaw took over as manager and led the club to Premier League Northern Division safety that season.
