Female Football Friday sessions starting Friday 2nd September

Over the years we have had many female players, but very few female teams.

We are now offering a training session on Friday evenings that is open to all female players who are aged 15 or older as of 1st September 2016.

Sessions will be overseen by a coach with 20+ years of senior football coaching experience, a level two qualification and an appreciation of any player willing to try her best. Sessions will be supportive, with players set challenges to improve their own play.

The sessions are open to existing players, new starters and players wanting to get back into football.
Each player should arrive with two shin pads, a couple of quid and two x chromosomes.
Sessions will be ball based, with ball rolling time seen as very important to coaches and players alike.

The sessions will run 6-7pm on grass initially but then will move to astro turf on the same timeslot as the nights draw in.


Good Luck Lee

Good luck to Lee Nicholson, whose son plays for our Under 11 team Portland, who is taking part in a charity boxing match tonight (Fri 1st July) to raise funds for Lucy Morgan.

Lucy has had seizures form just before her first birthday but in april 2008 she had a long seizure that left her in a coma 2 ½ weeks and in hospital for 3 months. When she diagnosed two rare genetic disorders main one is autosomal dominant acute necrotising encephalopathy (ADANE) and homocysinuria which her body makes too much protein.This has left her wheelchair bound and blind in one eye,she is at villa real school and takes a cocktail drugs to get through each day.”

Lee is doing ‘fit to fight’ to raise funds for Lucy.  Donations can be made via ‘just giving’ by clicking here

Good luck Lee :)

Good luck to Team Thropton and Coach Ben Cole who are running 5k in the Riverside Park Run tomorrow (Sat 18th June) to try and raise £3000 to help Ben’s god-daughter Bethaney’s family get a much needed stair lift.Bethaney suffers from a serious condition called Mitochondrial Disease, and due to this condition, her ability to walk is extremely limited and therefore is dependent on a wheelchair.
