Girls football club attracts new recruits

A GIRLS’ football team from Wargrave held an open day for new players.

A GIRLS’ football team from Wargrave held an open day for new players.

Wargrave Girls, which was founded in 2000 and plays at Kings Field in the village, already has more than 150 players and 10 teams from under-sevens to a senior ladies’ side.

More than 10 youngsters turned up at the open day at the recreation ground off Recreation Road on Saturday. They joined in a training session and played in a friendly game. There was tea and coffee in the clubhouse for parents.

Coach Tim Townley, whose daughter Jessica plays for the under-nines team, said: "The open day was fairly successful. We had about five girls in the under-sevens and eights age group, two more in the under-nines and four or five for the under- 10s and 11s. There were also a few emails from people who were interested but couldn’t make it.

"We ran a normal training session with a fun warm-up and drills and towards the end we had a little match. We want to have fun, that’s what it’s all about in the younger age groups, getting them in to football so they want to carry on.



"The girls seemed to like it and want to come back again next week for training."
