Club launches first ever girls teams

6 September 2006

Sheffield FC have launched two new junior girls sides for the first time in their 150-year history.

The oldest club in the world has developed an under 14's and an under 16's team following the growth of interest in girls football.

Both teams will play their home games at Cowley Lane, Holmsfield, close to the first-team’s Bright Finance Stadium in Dronfield.

Their first ever season in the Sheffield and Hallamshire Girls County League will kick-off on September 9, with the under 14's facing an away game at Bretton Hall Juniors and the under16s playing at home against Kilarmarsh Juniors.

Graeme Driver, Sheffield FC coach for the girls teams, said: “There has been a real increase of girls interested in playing football and this is another exciting development by the club.

“Most of the players have come from a local side called Porter Juniors, but we are always looking for new talent and welcome anyone who wants to trial for the team.”

Sheffield FC now has a senior side, an under19s, a disability side and Graeme is also the coach of the club’s Ladies team.

Graeme added: “The club has really branched out in the last couple of years, offering more opportunities for the community to get involved and play for the oldest club in the world. Any girls that show ability in the junior teams could eventually progress to the Ladies team, which would be great.”

Anyone who wishes to play for the Sheffield FC Under 14 or the Under 16's teams should contact the club secretary Steven Hall on 0114 2205026.

Additional Notes
Sheffield FC is officially recognised by FIFA and the Football Association (FA) of England as the oldest football club in the world.

Founded in 1857, Sheffield FC will celebrate its 150th anniversary in 2007.

Sheffield FC is one of only two clubs in the world to hold a FIFA Order of Merit - the other being Spanish giants Real Madrid.

The club, which has two senior teams, nine junior teams, one woman's team and a disability team, embodies everything that is good about grassroots football and the positive role it can play in the community.
