Ellesmere Port to welcome Chester FC Wildcats

Girls in Ellesmere Port can get involved in football with the launch of an SSE Wildcats Girls’ Football Club in the town.
 

 
Chester FC Community Trust will be running weekly sessions on the 3G pitch at Ellesmere Port Sports Village on Wednesdays from 5pm to 6pm for girls aged 5-11 with all abilities and levels of experience welcome.
 
The first session takes place on Wednesday August 2 and is free to attend with no need to book in advance.
 
Ben Richards, community coach for Chester FC Community Coach, said: “We’re really looking forward to taking Chester FC Wildcats to Ellesmere Port.
 
“We have been working in partnership with Cheshire FA to encourage more girls to play football and recognised there was an opportunity for regular sessions for girls in the Ellesmere Port area.
 
“SSE Wildcats is a fantastic initative that allows girls with no football experience to have  fun engaging with sport, develop fundamental skills, try a variety of sessions, learn new things and create foundations for a lifelong love of sport.”
 
SSE Wildcats is a nationwide participation programme providing girls with regular opportunities to play football and take part in organised sessions in a fun and engaging environment with 200 clubs established across England throughout the spring and summer.
 
The launch comes during FA Girls’ Football Week, which is running between July 16 and August 6 to coincide with England’s involvement in Euro 2017 where the in-form Lionesses’ have progressed to the semi-finals.
 
Chester FC Wildcats already run weekly sessions on Saturday mornings at Goals Soccer Centre from 10am to 11am.
 
Sessions at both centres cost just £2 per week and there are progression routes to community clubs for those girls who wish to play in matches.
