Haddenham Ladies Football 04

As the women's football world cup continues, its great to learn that Haddenham Youth FC are on the hunt for the next generation of female players after receiving a £1,500 'Grow the Game' grant.

The scheme, which is funded by The Football Association (The FA) and delivered by the Football Foundation, will enable HYFC to create future development of Girls Only and Ladies' Football and provide a significant boost to female participatory opportunities in the village.

The 'Grow the Game' scheme sees grants of £1,500 awarded to community football clubs wishing to create new teams, especially amongst under-represented groups.

This year, funding was made available for clubs looking to create new female and disability football teams, which can assist towards the costs of FA coaching courses; FA league affiliation costs; referees' fees; first aid kits; football kit and equipment.

Andy Roff, Chairman of HYFC, said: It is magnificent for the club to be rewarded this grant from The FA. It acknowledges the excellent work and efforts that the coaches have put in to helping the current growth of the female teams within the club.
