With the change of season for girls' and women's football in full swing for a third season, many clubs are now creating opportunities for girls and women to play football.
Sam Milne, Scottish FA Girls and Women’s Football Development Officer for the East Region says:
“The change of season for girls youth football in Tayside and Fife proved a successful venture with a record number of girl’s football teams registering for season March – November 2009. In season 2009, Tayside and Fife there was a record number of 44 girls football teams playing organised football across the region, equating to nearly 500 girls from age 11 through to 17 years of age. In 2011, this has increased dramatically with now over 70 teams playing and well over 1000 girls playing registered club football in the region. We also have a record number of girls taking part in school football, especially the Dundee Girls Football League organised by Active Schools in Dundee, and our main aim would be to give these girls the opportunity to play in club football to encourage life long participation in the sport.”
The girls/ women’s clubs in Dundee and Angus have been working hard to provide opportunities for females in the area to participate in football and are always on the look out for new players or volunteers. Some information on the clubs can be found below.
