Haddenham Girls' football started in September last year with just six girls the first session, yet by the end of this first season, Haddenham Youth FC had no less than 38 girls on its books, spanning Years 3 to Year 7.
The under-10 girls finished their first season off with a much deserved tournament win at Thame on a very wet morning at the start of June.
Former Haddenham Youth player and now England Women International Alice Hassell was the guest of honour at the club's end-of-season awards ceremony on Saturday June 28.
Speaking to the girls before handing out their awards, Alice told the girls how lucky they are to now have a girls' team within the village. She wished them well in their future and hoped that they continue to enjoy their football and persist in their efforts to gain new skills and experience as players.
Girls' manager and Chairman of Haddenham Youth, Andy Roff, told everyone in attendance how overwhelmed he was with the interest of girls football, and how proud he was of all of their efforts in this their first season.
Two teams have been entered in two leagues for the coming season, U11 and U13, and new players are always welcome from Year 1 and up. For further information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
