Haddenham Youth Football Club was established in 1995 but it only began funding for girls' football two years ago. The club already now caters for three girls' football teams at Under-10, Under-12 and Under-13.
They currently compete in two leagues — Bucks Girls League and Oxford Mail Girls' Football League. For most of the players this is their first experience of playing football and competing against other teams on a weekly basis.
At the beginning of the season Haddenham Girls became a Sister Club to Reading Women FC. This means that the Women's Super League club and players will get involved in coaching the Haddenham girls on occasions — here in Haddenham — and also invite them along to their own training ground at Reading for some training sessions with the full squad. As well as this, the girls have free access to every Reading Ladies' home match at Adams Park, home ground of Wycombe Wanderers. The girls have had some great days out there, watching the Reading Women in action.
The featured photo was taken before the Reading match v Bristol City Ladies on Sunday 4th November where the girls of Haddenham Youth FC were given the honour of being flag bearers for the players entry to the pitch and two were lucky enough to be mascots to the players.
They were pitch side throughout throughout the game as ball girls, but before all this they were also given behind the scenes access. They had photo opportunities with the Reading Women players before the match and given a 5 kilo bucket of sweets to share among themselves!
To top it off, Reading put on a fantastic display for the girls by beating Bristol City 3-0! A great day was had by all — the players and parents too.
