Girls Football in Hertfordshire is thriving
More and more young players are getting into the grassroots game
There has been a huge explosion of interest in female football in recent years, with a professional women's league established, England matches attracting audiences of millions on TV and the Lionesses playing in front of a sold out crowd at Wembley for the first time.
This has also been reflected at grassroots level, with a massive growth in girls taking up the game. With high profile heroes of their own to provide inspiration, we have seen an incredible 50% increase in the number of girls teams in Hertfordshire in just two years.
Whether it's a Wildcats Girl's Football Centre that lets girls get a first taste of the game in a fun and friendly enviroment, or playing regularly with one of the many girls teams or clubs across the county, there has never been more opportunity for girls to get into the game.
