Gornal Girls FC aims for new goals

The award-winning team is looking for enthusiastic new players

An established local under-14s football team is calling for youngsters across the Black Country to put their best feet forward and join the squad for the new season.

Having won both league and cup trophies last season, Gornal Girls FC wants to build on this success when the season begins in September.

“However, to achieve this, we need enthusiastic local team members who are free to attend training once a week,” says under-14s team organiser, Craig Whittingham.

“We find that, while Gornal Boys FC has no trouble getting new recruits, the girls are often not so keen to come forward. That’s why we’re calling out for local lasses who love football to get involved and join a great team.”

Players are coached by an FA-qualified and CRB-checked coach with a valid first-aid qualification.

Training sessions at this charter standard club usually take place on Thursdays from 6pm, with matches played on Saturday mornings at Pensnett School.

Players, once signed, receive a full strip in addition to other training wear. To qualify, members will need to be in years eight or nine from this September.
