Get involved in women's football

Did you know women's football was the fastest growing sport in the world?

Well, now's the time to make sure you're not left out!

If you live in Wales there are more opportunities than ever for YOU to get involved in football.

The FAW Trust, the body charged with developing the game in Wales, has even set up a new scheme - especially with you in mind.

The aim of the Women's and Girls' Football Programme is to get more of you out on the pitch playing football.

And they'll also help you develop your silky skills so the best players can cut it on the international stage.

Three new girls' leagues have already been set up in North Wales.

There are new indoor and outdoor leagues in Powys and Pembrokeshire.

And an indoor schools league has been set up in the Swansea area.

So if you've always wanted to play football but are not sure how to get started, there's plenty of help at hand.

The fabulous FAW Trust website has a list of football development officers who should be able to point you in the right direction.

There are also a number of women's and girls' development officers who will be able to give you all the advice you need.

To find out more, contact Matthew Bishop, national co-ordinator for women's and girls' football, on 01443 228 873.
