    We are now starting to get things moving with the younger age groups. Primary school girls from St. Michaels, Junior School, Twerton and girls from Southdown Junior School are getting special training from Kat Hawkins, Polly Wardle and Libby Barnet, three of the stars of Bath University’s Womens’ football team that came runners-up in the British Universities Premier League this season. Give these young girls a few years and we might see some of them gracing the turf at ‘Twerton Park’ in Bath City colours – now that’s a thought!

    One of the foundations stated objectives is to develop and promote girls football in the area. Now that we have Fran working with us, we intend to teach girls on a regular basis so that they can compete at as high level as possible. We started to get things moving with after school soccer clubs for younger age groups in our local primary schools last season. During the early part of the summer term we provided a six week coaching course at Hayesfields school, it was run by Fran and one of the football coaches at the University. The course was extremely successful and, as a consequence, we are going to provide time for her to work in the sports department at Hayesfields and Ralph Allen School during the Autumn term. Her job will be to organise and run after school clubs. Hopefully we will be able to arrange some matches between the schools in the year.
