BACT SUPPORTS EFL WOMEN'S WEEKEND

5 March 2022

AS part of EFL Women’s Weekend, Burton Albion Community Trust is promoting the women we work with and support.

We have our Wildcats sessions which have launched in the last few months. The aim of the Wildcats sessions are to offer girls aged 5-11 a chance to try football for the first time and provide regular opportunities for girls to play football. There are two sessions a week, with one being at our Football Community Centre on a Wednesday and the other taking place at Anglesey Primary Academy on a Thursday.

Anyone can be a part of our Wildcats sessions. As a trust we want to get as many people playing football as we can. Just book onto the session via the Official Soccer Schools Burton Albion website - Book Burton Albion Football Courses & Soccer School Sessions (officialsoccerschools.co.uk)

Despite the name, our Mums' Play sessions are aimed at anyone aged 16 and above who is looking to just play football for the fun of the game. There’s no pressure, just an incentive to enjoy a kick around and develop a bit of fitness at the same time.

The next stage of Mums' Play is the Staffordshire Mums' Play league. For those looking at taking the jump and playing competitive games whilst representing Burton Albion Community Trust, however there’s no pressure to do so and just attending the Mums' Play sessions is more than enough!

In the past couple of years, Burton Albion Community Trust has massively increased its presence in the girls' game.

We have a team for most ages between 11 and 18 and compete in local and regional league set ups and compete at a high standard. Benefits of the programme include training kits, tickets to selected Burton Albion FC matches, and physical rehab support from Burton Albion Women's Junior sports therapists.
