Haddenham Youth Football Club initiated a 'Girls Only' football session in early September with six keen youngsters turning up to demonstrate their skills and benefit from structured coaching. By the end of November the club was delighted to be able to register its 32nd female player.

Club Chairman, Andy Roff, is a keen advocate. "We are delighted with the uptake by our local young girls, and there is a good mix of age bands in attendance at the moment — indeed, the club is looking forward to registering two age bands for next season (2014/15) in the Bucks Girls' League — Under 11s (Yrs 5 & 6) and Under 12s (Yrs 6 & 7)."

In the meantime, Haddenham Girls made history on 16th November by playing the first ever HYFC Girls match at the ASM Stadium in Thame. And what a fantastic game it was, with end to end football from the start.

All the girls' did themselves, and the club, proud. It was cold, damp and wet, but the spectators were entertained from the first to final whistle, and the game was a great credit to both teams. The girls can't wait for the return fixture early in the new year.

A fixture has been agreed with Long Crendon U9s for December and fixtures have been arranged with Risborough U11s and U12s, as well as Long Crendon U12s for the start of the new year.

The girls' football sessions take place every Saturday morning, from 11am until 12 noon, at Haddenham Playing Fields. For more information, please contact Andy Roff by email: roffey68@gmail.com or visit the club's website
