Inspiring the female generation
Aldershot Town Community Trust are extremely proud to have successfully funded for the Female Football Development programme (FFD) with The Football League Trust. This funding has now come to an end but is continued by the Premier League to allow the regular weekly sessions to take place.
The FFD Programme is playing a crucial role in the progression of the Women and Girls game. Aldershot Town Community Trust are pleased to report an increase of participation figures throughout the locality with the delivery of the free FFD sessions playing a big part in this increase.
Girls and Women aged from 14 + years old can access these free sessions on a weekly basis. So, if you are female and wish to be involved in the programme please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we look forward to seeing you soon.
Aldershot Town Football in the Community have claimed silverware at Wembley Stadium in 2015 and 2016, as the Club’s Community Trust girls team took part in the annual FA Girls Football Festival.
The girls have won the Plate competition as over 200 girls from across the country, annually, represent Premier League and Football League clubs in the five-a-side tournament that is usually played prior to the Women’s FA Cup Final.
The teams feature girls from local schools including Connaught, Wavell and Court Moor, all of whom attend the Football in the Community Trust’s free coaching sessions, for girls aged 13-17, at Connaught School from 5-6pm every Wednesday.
The Football League Trust Female Football Development programme was launched in 2014 to ‘inspire the future female game’ with an ethos of fun, friends and fitness. The AT Community Trust girls are one of over 50 organisations delivering FFD sessions aimed at 14-25 year-olds, in an attempt to make Women’s Football the second most played team sport in England, by reaching over 40,000 new players
