After a challenging but successful time last year with our women and girls football programme, we are proud to announce we have been funded for a second year of activities. We are working with some local high schools within the borough to increase the number of girls aged 14+ in the participation of female football. The aim of the programme is to help our club partner ‘Bury Girls and Ladies’ to grow their teams and structure so that more females take part in the fastest growing female sport. Last week we held a girls football tournament at Goshen sports centre were ten different girls teams from high schools around the borough turned up to play against each other. Each team showed great football ability and were very committed in each game. Elton High girls won the tournament and received a certificate and pendant each as well as the runners up. Well done Elton High School!
