Callington to start reserve team

Regional Premier South West News - Callington to start reserve team - 1 Feb 2019 - Women's Football News
Callington Town are set to make further strides within the women's game by announcing plans to create a new second team this summer.
Callington Town Ladies, who are currently the highest-ranked women's team (aged 16+) in Cornwall, are looking to build on their success by creating a second team to play county level football.
The existing team play in the South West Women's Football League Premier Division and are current holders of the Cornwall FA Women's Cup. The club say the plans are for the second team to develop, learn and train alongside the current first team group.
Manager of Callington Town Ladies, Adam McPherson said: "This is a huge step forward for women's football in our part of the county, and we are now looking to recruit players of all abilities, ages and experience levels. Enthusiastic players, who are 16 and above, are encouraged to come forward and make contact with us and express an early interest. This is the perfect environment for them to play regularly and train alongside some of the county's top female players.
"We're applying to enter the new team into the Cornwall Women's Football League, which is entry-level standard, but we feel that with the right blend of youth and experience, we can do well and hopefully provide players with opportunities to progress within the game. We have some of the best facilities around, along with exceptional coaches and training sessions. It's about creating another welcoming and fun local team to improve players' confidence, fitness levels and playing ability."
Callington Town have had a women's team for over a decade and they have stood the test of time, with many local women's sides disbanding during that time, including the likes of Dobwalls, Launceston and Liskeard, which all unfortunately folded in recent years.
McPherson added: "It's been difficult for many women's teams in the East of Cornwall to start up and consistently maintain a team. It is incredibly challenging, but we feel we have the set up at Callington which is proven to work and it can sustain a second team. For the future of women's football in the area, we need to provide a realistic platform in which younger, developing players can get valuable playing time. Not to mention giving opportunities within the community for experienced former players or people wishing to return to the game."
As women's first team manager, McPherson will work closely alongside the club's coach (Sam Borthwick) and also the current manager of the East Cornwall Premier League men's side, Lee Mann, who will take up the reins of the women's second team this summer.
On taking on the additional role for Callington Town, Lee Mann said: "Since joining this club, and even before that, I could see that one of its big strengths was the ladies' team and what Adam and his group have managed to build. If I can help them to continue their progress by providing more playing opportunities for local players, then I will do whatever I can. Hopefully, in time, there might be one or two girls who can move into the first team, playing at a higher-standard, but it's mainly about giving more people a chance to train and play with this brilliant club."
Callington Town Ladies are actively looking for new players for their second team, which will train once a week and play matches on Sundays. They are asking for interested players to contact the club via their Facebook page (search ‘Callington LFC') or by contacting them via email: CallingtonTownLFC@Outlook.com.
