To start a FA registed girls football club in Barnet, North London as football opportunities for girls are virtually non existent at the moment.
About the project
We are two mums and two school staff members who have a passion to provide girls with a football team in our community to join for training and the opportunity to play in a league and cup competitions. Having looked around for teams for my daughter I realised there is very little, if any, choice. She loves football and wants to be able to play but boys teams won't take her and the only local club stopped running a few years ago. She is not alone in being a girl and loving football. We already have 8 very committed team members so are ready to start the next step but the kit alone will cost £1000 plus training facility fees, FA registration fees, referee fees and DRB check fees. We need the money raised to cover these costs. We are all working on a voluntary basis and are very happy to do so.
