Rochdale AFC’s Football in the Community Trust has announced the launch of a Dale girls under 16s football team.
They’re looking to set up the newly formed team this summer in preparation for the start of league season, which will get underway in September.
The Trust is inviting girls, who will be 15 and under on September 1st, to try out for the team on Wednesday 9th July.
The event is taking place at the Soccer Factory (Royle Barn Road, Rochdale) between 6pm and 8pm, and is completely free of charge. Those who are interested should just turn up on the evening.
The launch of the new team has been made possible thanks to funding from the FA and the Football League Trust, who have joined forces to increase participation in the women’s game.
Keith Hicks, Head of Dale’s Football in the Community Trust, commented: “Here at Rochdale, we’re really excited to be setting up this new under 16s team. It’s a great opportunity for young women to get involved in the game, whether they’ve played before or are looking to play for the first time. And it’s all about having fun – it will be a pressure free environment.”
