A successful Torquay football club which has launched a brand new girls’ team is calling for new members this autumn.
Funded by Sanctuary Housing, Watcombe Wanderers Football Club (WWFC) has launched its first under 14s female-only team, following the success of the under 13s girls’ squad last year.
Young people are invited to come along to the training sessions, which take place every Saturday morning at Long Lane, Haccombe, Newton Abbott from 9.30am until 11am.
As well as giving local young people opportunity to develop their sporting abilities and build up important skills in teamwork and self-confidence, it is hoped the sessions will also see two adult volunteers earn coaching qualifications.
Sanctuary’s neighbourhood partnerships manager, Lynne Roberts, said: “It’s been fantastic to see the success WWFC has had so far and this new team will help us to extend the positive impact of this project to even more Bay teenagers.”
For more information about any of WWFC’s youth teams contact Garry Bridger by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
This project is funded by Sanctuary’s Community Investment Fund, supporting projects which benefit Sanctuary residents and their communities.
