Minal Welcomes Girls Football Teams
We are delighted to confirm that Girls Football has kicked off the Marlborough season on the Minal Sports field on Saturdays and Sundays and started this month.
John Whitehead, Club Secretary of Marlborough Youth Football advises:
"The teams that will be using the pitches for their home league matches will be the U9, U10 and U11 girls teams of Marlborough Youth FC. They will be competing in the Wiltshire County Women's and Girls' League against teams from across the County. The U9s and U10s will be competing in their leagues as the Marlborough Youth FC U9 Angels and Marlborough Youth FC U10 Angels. The Angels is what the girls' section of our Club is generally known as."
When the girls reach Year 6 at school and become U11s they get to choose their own team name and the U11s are now called the Marlborough Youth FC U11 Rebels!
As Millie Carmichael has posted in the Minal Community page on Facebook, this year its the Angels and in a few years from now it could be the England Lionesses!
