Girls Teams

September 2019 Update

This week saw the start of the 19/20 girls football season at Raiders building on the success of Sarah Whale’s  amazing efforts four years ago when she inspired others to take the girls section forward. Now around 260 girls ages 7-16 get to enjoy the magic of football. Every Monday we see all the girls train on the Astro at Ashlyns school – with home matches on the beautiful pitches at Bridgewater school.

An amazing group of parent volunteers make the weekly Saturday matches possible. We welcome new players and if you would like to see more of what we do or inspire a new player of any age please do come along to watch between 10am  and 12 noon.

The girls section now has its own dedicated trustee Alison Spencer, who we welcome to the role working alongside  Raiders  Girls Welfare Officer Joanna Conway and Criminal Records Check Officer, Sarah Hughes – to them and all our volunteers past and present – a huge thanks.

Every season we see more and more female parents/guardians stepping forward to manage, assist and referee  all mirroring the progress of the senior game and providing vital roles models for our girls.
