A group of students from Bridgnorth Endowed School recently took the initiative to approach one of the town’s football clubs in a bid to form their first U13 and U10 girls’ teams. The idea stemmed from a school trip to Loughborough University in March of last year, where students got the chance to meet the England international left-sided winger Sue Smith.
Both teams, now part of Bridgnorth Town Juniors, have since been supported with FA start-up grants from the Football Foundation and have secured a local sponsor for their kit. Bridgnorth Endowed School PE teacher Steve Chase, also of Bridgnorth Town Juniors said, “We’ve been really pleased with the commitment and we now boast a full 17 in our U13 girls’ team – our U10 team have a squad of 11.”
The club is looking to expand its girls’ football with two further teams. If you want to get involved or for more info, contact the club’s head of girls’ development on 07967 709193.
