Marlow FC Girls
Marlow FC Girls are on the hunt for the next generation of female players after receiving a Grow the Game grant from the Football Association.
The scheme, which will be delivered by the Football Foundation, will help the club create four new female teams across different age groups (6-18).
Ian Benfell, chairman and coach of the u16s squad, said: “The award of this grant reflects the commitment within our club to developing girls football within the local community for all ages and abilities, striving to be inclusive in everything we do.
“The grant will be a significant boost to female participatory opportunities in Marlow and our local areas.
“In addition, we are proud to have Wildcats accreditation which confirms the good work that has been carried out by our coaches and volunteers to grow girls football within our club, promoting the game.”
The Grow the Game scheme sees grants of £1,500 awarded to community football clubs seeking to create new teams, especially among under-represented groups. It can assist toward the costs of FA coaching courses, league affiliation costs, referees’ fees, first aid kits, football kit and equipment.
