We're very pleased to announce that following a request made to the Trust board, we will be providing some funding for the new STFC girls team. Promoting football and the Club in the community is a key aim of the Trust and the board were more than happy to agree to the request to provide £400 to help fund a coach through the summer until funding arrives for the new season. The Trust will also have it's name on the new kit which will be provided next season.
We share the Club's aim to produce as many teams as possible under the name of STFC and hope that the girls football team goes on to grow the game in Slough.
Club secretary Kay Lathey provided the following statement:
"The club,and the FA Skills Team have in partnership been running a six week programme of coaching for Primary school aged girls at Arbour Park on a Saturday morning.
The purpose of this is to get girls playing and ultimately to establish one or more teams at Slough Town.
The block of six weeks is approaching the end and in order to maintain these sessions and build the numbers to enable the establishment of the team for next season, The Supporters Trust have made a contribution to the costs. The sessions will now be able to continue to run through to the summer.
Each week between 12-20 girls from across the town aged 7-11 have been receiving coaching and playing matches. The club is now seeking a coach, preferably female to take over the training and to manage a team in the new season.
We are really grateful to the Trust for this donation as it will enable us to introduce our first girl's team to the club which has been high on our agenda for some time."
