National League Trust's Day of Recognition - Girls Satellite Football Clubs

Over the last 20 months football has played a vital part in helping communities cope with the stress of the pandemic. National League Clubs and their charities have been involved in many local initiatives to help alleviate the impact of lockdown and restrictions. They have continued to deliver activities and support partners through this difficult time. Over the weekend of the 12 to 14 November, the NLT and the League are celebrating their contribution.

Brackley Town Football Club prides itself on being an inclusive club. As part of that, we started the Girls Satellite Football Clubs with the aim of being in schools and coaching girls football every day of the school week. We are currently in four local schools and roughly 60 girls per week are joining the sessions.

Whilst we were unable to attend schools during lockdown, we used this time to thoroughly plan our training sessions and keep up contact with our local schools to ensure that momentum was never lost and the promise of returning to the pitch was something everyone looked forward to.

We can’t thank the schools we attend enough for their support of girls football and of Brackley Town Football Club. And whilst we love to teach football, we are also delivering PPA cover in some schools, helping children with assisted reading.

Thanks to the success of the Girls Satellite Football Clubs, we introduced girls-only football training on a Tuesday evening. We now run two girls football teams and a women’s team. It’s great to see more girls taking up the game and we are getting more enquiries than ever from girls wanting to play football.

“The girls have loved the sessions that Andy has put on at Southfield School. It has helped them massively with confidence and with learning a new game” – Matt Green, Head Teacher at Southfield Primary
