Girls' Football at Langton Green

Girls’ football at Langton Green is a work in progress. We know they love to play, and we know we are delighted to have them.

We also know we have been very fortunate to be awarded a Grow the Game grant for girls' soccer by the Football Foundation.

What is harder is to figure the best way to develop the girls. Some of them want to be treated exactly the same as the boys, and play in the same teams; several do. Others enjoy being part of an all-girls team, and we have done that too. The world of girls' soccer is changing fast, and we are trying to go with the times. For the 2019-20 season we will be fielding 5 teams in the Kent Girls and Ladies Football League (KGLFL), based around the girls who have played with us in previous years.

u9 Langton Green Firebirds, managed by Rob Hamilton - rob.hamilton@clearedgeconsulting.co.uk

u10 Langton Green Divas, managed by James Bowyer - james_bowyer26@hotmail.com

u11 Langton Green Lynx, managed by James Tuson - jamestuson@gmail.com

u12 Langton Green Belles, managed by Paul Carley - carley73@live.co.uk

u15 Langton Green Wildcats, managed by Chris Allen  cma_5963@yahoo.co.uk

The u9 to u12s will train on Fridays at the Bennett School 3g, and prospective new joiners for those age groups should contact the managers listed above.

We are also keen to develop our next wave of u7s and u8s. But as well as wanting the girls to come along, we are also very keen to invite the parents who want to be involved in the journey. You don't need to arrive as a coach; we will help you - 4 of the 5 coaches listed above took their FA Level 1 badge last year, having had no idea they would even be a coach the year before! We have a lot of people who used to be you, and willing to share what they have learnt. So.....if you are thinking of coming along for the first time, write to Chris Allen -  cma_5963@yahoo.co.uk
