AN ambitious new girls football club is on the lookout for more players.

Chester and District Girls FC were formed this year by four experienced girls football managers and their daughters.

The club, nicknamed the Zebras, has managed to attract youngsters from various parts of Chester, Warrington and the Wirral, but chairman Russell Rourke is very keen for new players, in school years three to six, to sign up.

He said: “Recruitment of new girls was high on the club’s agenda and hoped once word spread of what the Chester and District Girls club had to offer, we would start to see some new faces around the training ground.

“Our goal is for our club to become the first choice for girls wishing to play football in and around the Chester area.”

The Zebras train on Friday evenings at local sports centres and, while the primary aim is to develop the girls’ footballing skills, the club likes to put on social events for their players such as ten-pin bowling and laser quest.

Russell added: “The committee, coaching staff and parents have worked hard to ensure that we set up a club that the girls are proud to play for and we see enjoyment as being central to this.”

Chester and District Girls FC is affiliated to the Cheshire FA and will run teams at under 10s and U12s level in the Cheshire Girls League next season.

If you are in school years three to six and would like to play for the Zebras you can contact Dave King on 07762 528037.
