Girls football in the London Borough of Redbridge continues to go from strength to strength this summer as the Essex County F.A.'s eight-week School-Club Link programme came to an end at Snaresbrook F.C.
The club, based in Wanstead, were assisted by the ECFA in setting up a girls section which included in-school 'Taster Sessions' as well as a further eight weeks of coaching support at the club's Nutter Lane facility. The sessions were delivered by an all-female team of coaches from the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation who also helped with the first eight weeks of sessions run at the club.
Tasters were delivered in four local schools and the response at the club's Saturday training mornings was extremely positive, with over 25 girls in attendance. As a result of the bumper turnout, Snaresbrook will be entering two new girls' teams into the newly-formed Girls Under-10 Division of the Essex County Girls' League, which is open to clubs based in the London Boroughs of Havering, Newham, Barking & Dagenham, Waltham Forest and Redbridge.
Reflecting on the accomplishment, ECFA Girls & Women's Football Development Officer for the London Boroughs, Sharon Brownlie, explained: "In the short time we have been delivering work within the Boroughs this has by far been our most successful School-Club Link. The delivery of the Taster Sessions received great feedback and the fact that Snaresbrook are now able to affiliate two new teams is a testament to the hard work undertaken by the club and the female coaches who have supported them."
Further information on how to get involved in the FA School-Club Link Programme or how to develop a girls section can be obtained from Sharon Brownlie on (01245) 393074 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
