With the Women's World Cup starting in just over a month, Haddenham Youth Football Club (HYFC) is on the look out for more girls who want to enjoy football.

HYFC is starting a new Under 10 Girls team (girls in school years 4 and 5 from September 2023) and is planning to add more players to its Under 14 Girls team for 2023/2024.

HYFC is staging special sessions for girls who want to enjoy football in a safe and positive environment:

U10s: 3.30pm, Monday 19th June 2023, Meet and Greet the Coach, Haddenham Community Junior School. Contact: Tara Medlicott: E: taramedlicott@hotmail.com | M: 07534 989 389

U14s: 9.30am, Saturday 8th July 2023, Team Try Out, Haddenham Airfield. Contact: Stephen Courtnadge E: Scourtnadge@aol.com M: 07866 517344.

HYFC will also have U12 and U15 Girls teams next season and they remain open to new joiners. The Club also runs the Haddenham Ladies team. Girls are welcome to play in mixed football teams up to U18.

HYFC chairman Alex Wagstaff said:

"Interest in girls and women's football is exploding, not least due to the incredible success of the Lionesses at last year's Euros.

"We want more girls to enjoy football close to home, regardless of ability to play or pay. So, come and see what it's all about and be part of an inclusive, family friendly club."

HYFC recently submitted an ambitious development plan to the Football Association and revealed a refreshed brand identity. The Club aims to invest in coaching, attract more players; add more teams; improve its playing facilities in partnership with Haddenham Parish Council; and bag more wins, big or small.

HYFC is currently developing a new website — to be found at www.hyfc.club — ready for next season.

If you are interested in playing, coaching or supporting the Club, please email: hello@hyfc.club.
