As part of our commitment to our local community, we sponsor a girls football team- the Moss Bank Emeralds!
Women and Girls’ football is becoming more popular but there’s still a huge bias towards the male game, and we want to challenge that. Little things like all the kit sizes being labelled as ‘small boy’, ‘medium boy’ etc show the male dominance in the sport. Our club have really embraced their growing number of girls teams and are challenging the institutional sway to make the game more embracing of all genders.
Coaching the girls has been such a rewarding experience for Jen, and it is exciting to watch them develop their skills, confidence and friendships.
