Our girls-only football scheme started life in September 2008, when just three girls, two of them sisters, turned up to our very first session in Brixton.
Since then we have steadily developed girls’ football in Lambeth both on and off the pitch. In partnership with Lambeth Council and the Lambeth This Girl Can initiative we have run the Lambeth Secondary Schools Girls’ League and tournaments for girls in years 7 to 10 every year since 2010. We also select and manage the Lambeth London Youth Games squad every year. Our sessions take place on Saturday mornings at Ferndale Sports Centre, Brixton SW9 and Wednesday evenings at the Roupell Park Estate MUGA, Upper Tulse Hill SW2 (details below).
Players of all abilities between the ages of 11 and 16 are welcome to join in for 2 hours of coaching and competitive 6-a-side games every Saturday morning throughout the year.
Our current coaching team consists of 4 young women who all came through the scheme as participants. Our lead coach started playing with us aged 14, went on to gain her F.A Level-1 & -2 coaching badges with us and plays semi-pro football. Want to emulate her? Then come on down!
