It's been a very busy but very exciting summer for Loughborough Foxes who return to league action on Sunday.
Last season's relegation from the FAWPL Northern Division sees them back in the Midland section, 18 months after winning the Championship. Foxes will start the season as one of the favourites for promotion again and after losing several key players have been rebuilding over the summer. They start with a 2pm kick off, at Loughborough University Stadium, on Sunday at home to Sporting Khalsa before travelling to Solihull on the bank holiday weekend.
The loss of captain Vicky Brackenbury will be a huge void to replace after eight years with the club and leading them to three promotions in that time. Shauna Chambers will take over as captain while recruitment during the summer has been focused on young players. Charlotte Cooper has arrived from AFC Leicester while Harriet Simes returning to the club after a year at university. Elsewhere, Siobhan Eastman has moved from Loughborough Students while Chloe Young, Becky Matlock and Kathryn Hollier have all moved from Ellistown.
Foxes are running three adult teams next year and are still looking for new players at both adult and junior level. Foxes will have teams in the East Midlands Southern section this season after the Vixens team won promotion. They have also created a development team that will play in the FAWPL Reserve midland section. Both teams have also recruited new coaches to support the clubs coach development policy. Please contact the club via the website if you're interested in coming along to training on a Tuesday evening, at www.loughboroughfoxeswomensandgirlsfc.co.uk.
Foxes' pre-season has gone well with some tough games against higher ranked opposition while Sunday's final game saw them beat Coventry Reserves 7-2 and the clubs junior section has just started training again ahead of here season starting on 4th September. Foxes are running teams at U16, U15, U14, U13 and U12 next year, while they have also received SSE funding for a new Under 9/10 squad and this is running at Loughborough College on a Tuesday from 5pm-6pm and new players are welcome to turn up and play. This programme will run till October before feeding into the regular club sessions. Charnwood Borough Council are also supporting the club in recruiting players with a coaching programme that starts at Woodbrook Vale School in late September.
