Buckley Town FC set to expand girls’ teams to nine in effort to promote the female game
Buckley Town Football Club are set to expand their girls’ teams in an effort to promote and support the female game.
For the 2021/22 season, the club’s existing six girls’ teams, ranging from under-8s to under-13s, will grow to at least nine teams with the addition of under-6s, under-7s and under-14s teams.
They say this growth will be facilitated by three newly-introduced Heads of Phase, which will provide support to individual age-group coaches.
An under-19s team, ready to enter competitive football in the 2022/23 season, is being planned as well as a female First Team, ready to enter competitive football in the 2023/24 season.
A representative for Buckley Town FC said: “Female football has seen incredible growth in recent years. In March last year the FAW reported that the female game had grown by 50% since 2016, and despite the impact of Covid, this growth has continued.
“While there is still a huge degree of uncertainty surrounding season start dates, Buckley Town Football Club is determined to promote and support the female game.”
All teams will be supported by, and work within, their club-wide age-specific coaching framework, built by their UEFA-A and B Licence holders.
Buckley Town FC coaches will also provide strength and conditioning, performance analysis, and performance nutrition specific to the female game across all age-groups.
As the club continues to improve facilities at The Globe, they will also be providing a range of contact sessions, including football, conditioning, injury prevention, and analysis.
