Players will need suitable outdoor clothing in layers to out on and take of depending on weather. Suitable footwear of trainers with grip, pimples or football boots must be worn. The ground is quite hard at this time of year so long stud football boots are likely to be uncomfortable. Trainers with grip maybe a good option.
If you have them please bring shin pads. We have a supply of shin pads that can be borrowed.
Please accompany your child bringing any suitable medication such as inhalers if required. The clubhouse will be open giving all visitors access to our facilities, toilets and tea bar for drinks and snacks.
Our aim is that by providing accessible football, we help girls to decide if they are keen to play in the future and help them find an environment suited to them. Open to all girls of all abilities, from those just starting out to others who already play in a team – by holding our sessions on a Saturday AM now that the Bedfordshire Girls Football League matches have finished, sessions will not interfere with any club training sessions and won’t an alternative for those involved in grassroots football already. It should however help girls to get more football, experience and attract new players to the game.
WHERE AFTER IF NOT LEIGHTON UNITED?
Whilst hosted at Leighton United session are open to all players of any clubs and through working with a wide variety of coaches across girls’ teams in Bedfordshire we also aim to connect girls who wish to play football next season to clubs and teams with places.
