The Premier League Girls football project is a very exciting opportunity funded by the Premier League looking at getting girls playing football. The project looks to primarily target players who are completely new to the game or have been lost from football and need to be re engaged. It looks to provide high quality opportunities for women and girls aged 11+ to play football. We ourselves here at the Community Trust have seen the huge rise in participation numbers over the years and women's football just looks to be going from strength to strength.

 

With the help of the Premier League's funding we have been able to build on our past work in girl’s football and set up teams in schools who are lacking girls football opportunities with weekly training sessions and the planning of fixtures and tournaments.  We are delighted to be able to say we are setting up a local U13 girls team with Charlton Rovers for 11-13 year olds to come and play on Tuesday nights at Balcarras 6:30-7:30.

 

All of our sessions are about getting more girls active and participating in football or re-discovering their love of the game. On top of this we want to provide them with the opportunity of a pathway into football so that they don't leave as they are the future of women's football. Whether that pathway is to find local clubs to join or to discover their hidden desire to be a coach or referee we are happy to help them along as far as possible.
