Community Trust to reform women's team

7 June 2013

Training starts on Tuesday

What is the fastest growing sport in the country at the moment? 
Which sport currently has 1.38 million women and girls playing regularly all over the country? 
If you answered women’s football to either of those questions then you will realise just how big the sport is becoming. 
And Shrewsbury Town FC is becoming part of the development of women’s football. 
We are delighted to announce the reformation of a women's football team.
The team will be run through the club's Community Trust with experienced coaches involved.  
Training will start next Tuesday, June 11 between 7.30pm and 8.30pm at the Greenhous Meadow.
The cost per session is £3 which will contribute towards the new club's running costs. 
Any females aged 16 or over are very welcome to attend. 
"We are really excited about this," said Jenny Daniel, Shrewsbury Town's Community Development Officer. "The club used to be affiliated to a women's team but hasn't been involved with a side for quite a few years now.
"We feel the time is right to change that and I know there is a lot of footballing talent locally and many women and girls who love to play the game.
"This will be a community led initiative through the club's Community Trust and we are looking forward to welcoming players from around the county." 
For any further information on being part of a route into women’s football, please contact Jenny Daniel at the Greenhous Meadow on 01743 289177 Ext 239/ 07850 473843 or email
