Haddenham Rovers Colts are pleased to announce the formation of their first all-girls teams. The village boys’ team is well established in the area regularly securing top of league positions. The girls’ team, which has been discussed for some time, drew instant appeal from Haddenham’s young ladies and quickly saw enough demand to form two separate teams (under 10’s and under 14’s).
The under 10’s girls’ coaches are Alison Chambers, Kieran Carr and Gill Lucas who have are newly qualified coaches who wanted to set up the team as there was a great demand from players in that age group.
Not only are the under 10’s team playing high adrenaline games in the S-Tech league, the club has now secured sponsorship from Soham-based Trojan Commercial Cleaning. Anita Mills, the company owner and Managing Director commented:
“We are very pleased to support such a positive and inspirational team. As a female business owner, I think it’s important that girls are offered the same experiences as boys from an early age. Training in a football team instills a sense of community, discipline and friendly competitiveness and we are proud to support the Haddenham Youth Team in their ventures.”
The team train weekly on a Monday 5pm-6pm and play matches on Saturday mornings and are improving match on match.
“So far we have played 5 matches losing 4 with one draw. It’s all about learning, understanding the game, working part of a team and having fun.
We are very grateful to Trojan for the sponsorship. We have purchased rain jackets which the girls are thrilled about and will now have our own identity when we go to matches.” said Alison Chambers, the Haddenham Girls Manager.
“The rise of womens’ football mirrors England’s victorious campaign in the 2015 World Cup in Toronto. We look forward to nurturing talented players who might some day represent a national side.”
Trojan specialise in office cleaning and cleaning for GP surgeries in and around the Cambridge area.
