Staveley has been integral to the continuous success of Becky Langley's side, championing the women's team ever since the takeover in 2021. United Women currently sit top of the FA Women's National League North after only just being promoted.

After Sunday's win, midfielder Georgia Gibson- who scored the winner- posted a photo of her and Staveley to social media.

"I think we did the gaffer proud," she wrote alongside a snap of the pair hugging on the pitch after the match.
