Bromsgrove Editorial 17th Jun, 2017

A new club to promote girls playing football has kicked off in Bromsgrove.

As part of The FA’s objective to double girls’ participation in football by 2020 the governing body and sponsors SSE have launched 200 SSE Wildcats girls’ football clubs across the country this year. The clubs offer girls aged five to 11 regular opportunities to play football and take part in organised sessions.

Bromsgrove SSE Wildcat, run running in conjunction with Worcestershire FA, is is based at South Bromsgrove School and aims to encourage and inspire local girls to take part in football and fitness sessions in a fun and engaging environment created exclusively for girls.

The sessions take place on Mondays from 5pm-6pm at South Bromsgrove School. All sessions are just £2 a week and first session is free.

Laura McGinn, from Worcestershire FA, said: “The girls have loved being part of SSE Wildcats since we started and it’s great to see their enthusiasm and enjoyment. 2017 is a big year for women’s and girls’ football with the Women’s European Championships in the summer and local opportunities like SSE Wildcats Clubs to join as well as many of our clubs setting up new female teams.”
