Bangor City FC in the Community the community partnership between Bangor City FC and Vi-Ability have recently launched the latest phase of their new girls football project. This new scheme is being delivered in partnership with the Welsh Football Trust with a key aim of getting more girls playing football on a regular basis.
The project targeted at girls aged 7 - 11 years is being delivered across Primary Schools in Gwynedd and Anglesey. Each Primary School will receive free taster sessions for all the girls in Years 3 to 6 with a weekly Turn Up and Play (TUP) Session being set up to provide regular Girls Only football opportunities.
The project being rolled out in 3 areas is now seeing its latest phase being delivered in Primary schools in Holyhead.
January 2016 has seen Bangor City in the Community begin to deliver the Holyhead arm of this project which will mean a total of 8 Primary Schools in the area receiving free taster sessions before a TUP session is kicked off on a Friday 4pm - 5pm at the Millbank Astro-Turf on 22nd January. So far the scheme has seen over 160 girls playing football and having fun in 4 Primary Schools: Ysgol Y Parc; Ysgol Llanfawr; Ysgol Kingsland and Ysgol Y Fali.
Bangor City's Community Officer Ethan Ray said "this is a fantastic project to be delivering in the area, it is great to be getting out into the community and engaging girls within football, giving them positive experiences of the sport and overall getting more girls playing more football, more regularly. Its is great to be working in partnership with the Welsh Football Trust on another scheme and we cant wait to get out to more schools to engender a Love for Football in more girls"
