SPORTS SPOTLIGHT: Marlow Town Women and Marlow Youth Girls U18

| |

As England reached the quarter finals of the Womens World Cup, it seems perfect timing to shine a light on women’s football in Marlow – Marlow Town Women’s Football Club and Marlow Youth Girls U18.

Marlow Town Women’s FC and Marlow Youth Girls U18 are just two of the clubs that come under the “Marlow Youth FC” organisation. Marlow Youth FC was formed in 1980 but has since expanded beyond the “youth” remit to include boys/girls, ladies, over 50 and over 60’s adult teams etc. The ethos of MYFC the club is to provide opportunities for all players to play and to enjoy playing. They encourage all players of all standard, and also like for all players to develop their technical and social skills while having fun playing the game.

Marlow Town Women’s Football Club

Marlow Town Women compete within the Thames Valley Football League along with 80 other women’s teams across 10 divisions in the area. Our ladies compete in approximately 20 games across the season, home and away, on a Sunday afternoon. Our playing and training squad is improving, and we move into our second competitive season. The team ages range from 18 to 45 years old; we train at The Steve Redgrave Centre (Great Marlow School) every Thursday 8 pm-9 pm, games are on a Sunday, and the season runs from September to May. We are always looking to welcome new players!

Marlow Youth Girls U18

MY GU18 have been together for over seven years, moving through the age groups. We are delighted they have moved through to U18, especially with all the pressures A Levels bring. Our girls compete in approximately 18 games across the season, home and away, on a Saturday morning.

Marlow Youth is keen to start a younger group of girls’ teams. Girls can access football via our sister club of Marlow FC which has an accessible range of age levels of girls football. Girls are also encouraged to play mixed football with boys until U11, which we would also encourage.
