Welcome to the Undy Girls’ Section!
We formed in October 2018 and since then have established a growing group of footballers aged 4 – 16, with 5 league teams in 2023-24 season. Our Women's squad has several players who have progressed from Junior football with us, and we have a steady feed of younger players now moving up the age groups. This starts with the Huddle programme, which is an FAW Trust initiative to give girls aged 4 - 11 an introduction to fun, friendship and football - see below for some exciting club news relating to Huddle.
We train on Friday evenings (U13 - U16) and Saturday mornings (all other age groups) at the Club, and we would love to welcome more girls (and coaches!) to come along and join us. So, whether you have played football before or never kicked a ball in your life, why not give us a shout & come and see what we do?
2018 - where it all began! Coaches Rhi and Dave set out on a journey with our very first girls.
2023 - How it's going... over 100 girls playing regularly and enjoying their football, with 12 coaches and parent helpers now on board, (but always room for more coaches and helpers!).
It is a great time to get involved in female football here in Wales. The FAW and FAW Trust are strong supporters of the growing girls' game, with lots of investment in grassroots football, new leagues being established and new teams springing up. Following on from the success of Euro 2022, and with growing interest in WSL and Welsh Leage women's football ahead, the demand for participation is really ramping up, so as well as welcoming new players, we are always keen to hear from anyone who would be interested in coaching, helping out behind the scenes or becoming a referee. All of our off-pitch team are volunteers and we all find it hugely rewarding and great fun too. Training and support is provided, so even if you have never been into football but want to help us on our journey and provide fantastic opportunities for girls in our community, please get in touch by email at email@example.com
Our girls' section, and the girls who play in mixed football within the wider Undy juniors' section, have a fantastic pathway from mini football, through competitive junior football, to senior football with the Women's Senior team - please see the seniors' section for further information or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more about our senior female football setup.
Great news for our Huddle team!
Our Huddle programme lead coach, Sam, was the winner of both the regional AND national 2022 FAW Grassroots Football Awards for the Community Coach of the year, which are sponsored by McDonalds. See the FAW's excellent video and further details of the event here. Here are our favourite photos of the awards ceremony, which was a great night celebrating some truly inspiring stories from grassroots football. Well done to all the award winners and nominees! And a huge thanks to the FAW and McDonalds for all their support to grassroots football.
