Juniors target next generation of female players after grant
Northwich Victoria Junior Football Club are on the hunt for the next generation of female players after receiving a 3000 Grow the Game grant.
The scheme, which is funded by The Football Association [The FA] and delivered by the Football Foundation, will enable Northwich Victoria Junior Football Club to start up an Under 8s Girls team and a womens open age team. The grant will enable the club to pay for Kit/Facilities and also FA coaching courses providing a significant boost to female participatory opportunities in Northwich.
The Grow the Game scheme sees grants of 1,500 awarded to community football clubs wishing to create new teams, especially amongst under-represented groups.
This year, funding was made available for clubs looking to create new female and disability football teams, which can assist towards the costs of FA coaching courses; FA league affiliation costs; referees fees; first aid kits; football kit and equipment.

Robert Walsh, Chairman, said: This is a significant boost to the Club from the FA and delivered by the Football Foundation. This will enable Northwich Victoria Junior Football Club to start two new Girls/Womens teams.
