Shrewsbury Town in the Community looking to give opportunities to female footballers
Shrewsbury Town in the Community are looking to provide more opportunities for young female footballers in Shropshire.
The Community recently launched ‘Wildcats’ Centres for girls between the ages of 5-11 and are also launching their Girls Development Centres for Under 13s, 15s and 17s this Wednesday (17th May).
Meanwhile, Sean Evans decided to step down from his role as Ladies Team Manager after enjoying another successful season in both League and Cup.
Jamie Edwards, Community Manager, thanked Sean for his hard work over the last four years and is now looking to take the Ladies pathway to the next level.
“Women’s football in general is obviously a massive growth area for the country so it’s something we want to really develop”, admitted Jamie.
“We want to have a pathway from the Wildcats Centres that will turn into a Girls Development Centre where they can be representing Shrewsbury Town from the age of eight all the way up to the Ladies team.
“Obviously Sean (Evans) has left us now. He has done an absolutely fantastic job with getting the Ladies team up and running and hopefully we can start to move that forward and have more people supporting the ladies pathway all the way through.
“Whether it be a male or female pathway it comes back to that one town and one club philosophy and making sure that everybody - whatever their age, sex, ability, disability – get the opportunity to represent Shrewsbury Town Football Club.”
