Eldwick Juniors FC Girls' Success

We recently spoke with Eldwick Juniors FC about their successful girls’ football programme.

Coach Jamie Holland took on the task of creating opportunities for girls at the club and the hard work has really paid off. Over a short space of time the club have gone from having 22 girls attending their fun sessions to now over 100 girls in a variety of different age groups. The key word here is, and the secret to their success is 'fun'. By creating an environment that is welcoming and engaging with plenty of opportunities for the girls to learn new skills, the numbers have continued to rise.

Jamie has not stopped there though. He has now taken on a role with the Craven Aire & Wharfe Junior League to help the league develop girls’ provision with their first steps being the creation of monthly galas. See the following flyer for more details.
