Women's Football News
Being the largest female-only football club in Berkshire with over 150 girls playing every week from Under-9 and at all age groups up to Ladies brings with it much responsibility.
Chairman Chris Cartwright and Treasurer Chris Deevey have taken this seriously and having spent the last two seasons quietly strengthening the club intake at Under-10 and below where there are now two thriving teams with over 20 girls, so they are now turning their attention to the upper end of the Club at Under-18 and senior level.
As an FA Charter Standard Club back in 2005, Reading Girls FC and Reading FC formed a partnership which helped establish the current very successful Reading FC Women which has just been promoted in to the FA Tesco Women's Premier League National Division. Whilst this put Reading FC on the map in terms of women's football, it left a gaping hole for Reading Girls FC at the top end of their grass roots structure. Whilst maintaining a Ladies team in Division One of the Southern Region League, it was not without its problems with the catchment area of Reading trying to support too many teams with a shortage of active players over 16 years of age.
Reading Girls FC now believe they are in strong position to re-establish themselves in ladies football with the many talented young players now emerging form their Under-14, Under-15 and Under-16 squads over the next few seasons. With this in mind the club has also taken the decision to improve its winter training facilities and will be utilising the 'state of art' 3G football pitches at the John Madjeski Academy (JMA) this coming winter.
Next season, the coaching support for both of the above senior teams will be underpinned by both Andy Norris and Chris Deevey (both FA Level 2 coaches) and Ricky Evans (FA Level 1) under the direction of Chris Cartwright, so exciting times are forecast ahead. To encourage many girls and ladies who will not be aware of the above changes within the club, Reading Girls FC are holding a trials/development evening for all players aged 16 years and over who feel that they might like to sample some of what the club now has to offer in terms of training facilities and coaching development.
These trials will be held on Wednesday 16th June at the John Madejski Academy (JMA) in Whitley, Reading from 6pm to 8pm and all will be made welcome. All players should come with the correct footwear (astro's, moulded, etc. NO STUDS). For further details contact Chris Cartwright on (07799) 876371 or Chris Deevey on (07785) 552106.
