Leamington Editorial 10th May, 2022   0

WARWICK Juniors FC are looking to recruit girls who will be in school year’s 3 and 4 from September 2022 to join their existing girls’ squad.

The squad currently trains each Saturday at Aylesford School and will be participating at under 9 level in the Central Warwickshire Girls League from September.

And the team are looking for more girls that would relish the opportunity to join the well-established club.

Warwick Juniors are inviting any interested players to come along, have fun, meet the coaches and the team, have a go at playing football and see if it is for them.

Open days are taking place on three consecutive Saturday’s, May 14, 21 and 28 between 9.30am and 10.30am and June 7 and 8 from 6.30pm to 7.30pm at Aylesford School.

All of the coaching staff will be on hand to answer any questions that parents and girls may have with the emphasis very much being on taking part.

Warwick Juniors FC were established in 2001 and were awarded the ‘Charter Standard Club of the Year’ in 2013 by Birmingham FA before being re-awarded Charter Standard Community Club status in 2015.

During that time the club have supported and developed hundreds of children over the years.

Club Chairman Alan Hughes said: “Girls’ football has had a place at our club for some time now but access to dedicated girls’ teams in the region is still relatively limited compared to the availability that boys have.

“We wanted to make girls and families in the area aware that there is an opportunity to play here and the open day is designed to give them a taster, free of charge and most importantly, enjoy themselves.”

The club’s headline success story is current Chelsea and England star Jess Carter who started playing football with Warwick Juniors from under-8’s to under-16’s level before joining Birmingham City Ladies and winning the PFA Young Player of the Year award in 2017.
