The success of the Northern Ireland Ladies Senior Team in recent years has driven an increase in young girls wanting to follow their football dreams.
Working alongside the IFA, we are re-introducing girls’ football to our portfolio, with a Girls only SSGC on Friday evenings at Ulster University, Coleraine. Older age groups will participate in a league format.
Re-aligning it back to our catchment structure has proved favourable, with the engagement of more community-based clubs. Currently, we have 37 teams participating from 11 individual clubs.
It great for all football in Northern Ireland to have the Harry Gregg small sided games and it important for every kid to enjoy football as well as the parents and coaches and the Harry Gregg staff who turn up every week in all conditions. Foyle Belles FC girls really enjoy the set up at the Harry Gregg every Saturday morning the girls look forward to playing different teams and this is our 7th year at the games centre.
