Girls’ football springs up across Cheshire

    •  

Girls across Cheshire will be provided with increased opportunities to play football after a new nationwide participation programme was announced.

The programme will see 200 SSE Wildcats Girls' Football Clubs opening throughout England this spring, each run in conjunction with the local County FA and their key partners. The move will provide girls aged from 5 to 11 with regular opportunities to play football and take part in organised sessions in a fun, engaging and safe environment over a minimum 16 week period.

The project is an integral part of The FA's objective to double girls' football participation by 2020 and has been established in a joint partnership between The FA and SSE, supporters of girls' football participation and sponsor of the SSE Women's FA Cup.

The SSE Wildcats Girls' Football Clubs will run in the spring and through to the summer on a weekly basis, either at weekends, after school or during the evening. Parents and carers who attend with the girls will also have the optional opportunity to take part in football-related fitness sessions at the same time as the girls.
