BBC Three has commissioned a second run of its series following West Ham United women's team.

After a successful first season - under the title Britain’s Youngest Football Boss - the broadcaster returns to east London to follow the fortunes of the team in Squad Goals: West Ham United Women (w/t).

Curious Films is again behind the production as the series picks up the story of 20-year-old MD Jack Sullivan and his team as they compete in the 2019/20 Women’s Super League.

Fiona Campbell, Controller, BBC Three, said: "We’re really happy that we are able to follow West Ham United women for another season and continue tackling the multiple dynamics of a high-performance team. With great access to stories from inspirational young women across the series, it offers the perfect ingredients for what we’re after at BBC Three."

The 6 x 30 series was commissioned by Campbell and the BBC Commissioning Executive is Michael Jochnowitz. Curious founders Dov Freedman and Charlie Russell are the Executive Producers.
