Clubs put rivalries aside
 Women's Football News 31 Jul 2011
Clubs put rivalries aside - 31 Jul 2011 - Women's Football NewsTwo local girls Clubs are showing everyone that local rivalries can be put aside as they work hand in hand for the development of young female footballers in Chelmsford. 
Chelmsford City Girls FC and Writtle Minors Girls FC, the two leading girls Clubs in the Chelmsford area, worked closely together last season to ensure all the girls who wanted to participate and play football were given that opportunity. The Secretaries of both Clubs, Sue Mold (Writtle Minors) and Dawn Barnard (Chelmsford City) identified that they were struggling at certain age groups and would be unable to field a team each week in the Essex County Girls League. Therefore, they both got together and agreed to offer the opportunity to the players to swap clubs ensuring there were enough players to field teams.
Sue found there were not enough players to field a team in the Under-14 age group so she contacted Dawn and established that she too was short of players but Chelmsford had a willing manager. The two groups of girls joined together under the Chelmsford name and entered the League. Dawn reciprocated by directing younger players towards Writtle as they didn't have sufficient numbers for a team of their own.
"It has been great to be able to work with Sue to provide football for the girls," stated Dawn, "and it has been great to break down the barrier that existed before between the two clubs. It is wonderful that both Clubs are now working together and I have found a good friend and colleague in Sue who has the same philosophy on football as me."
Dawn has been a Club Secretary for 25 years whereas Sue is only in her second season and Dawn has been able to offer guidance to Sue while she learns her new role, meaning both clubs have also benefited from sharing ideas and good practice.
Sue is equally pleased with the link: "It was fantastic to be able to join with Chelmsford City in order to provide football for a few of our players when we had insufficient for a full team. Dawn has been an absolute rock in my first season as Club Secretary, I don't know what I would have done without her helpful advice and she has now become a great friend."
