PFA chairman Clarke Carlisle said: "It’s perfect timing that this is announced on international women’s day and it should be good both for female players, who will now have the support of a long-established union, and for the PFA in terms of increased membership."
"I think it is fantastic that women players will now be able to join the PFA - it has been a long time in coming."
