Garston Ladies FC, a Watford-based female only football club, continued both their growth and their success in 2006-07.
The first team came a very respectable fourth in their first season in the London & South East Regional League, with the reserves (pictured) winning Division Three of the Greater London League and the under-13s winning the Herts County Cup. In addition, Garston entered the FA Women's Cup for the first time, winning through three rounds before being knocked out by Queen's Park Rangers.
The club was formed in 1996 and in May 2002, at the end of the season, they joined forces with Everett Ladies to form Garston Ladies FC and became one of the biggest female only clubs in Hertfordshire. The growth of girls football has been unprecedented in the club as they now have around 150 playing members aged between 8 and 45'ish with the numbers growing each week, however they are always looking to expand and welcome all new players regardless of ability - the one acceptance criteria is that you want to play football.
In 2004-05 all of the club's managers and coaches became fully qualified Level 1 coaches by the FA and qualified first aiders. Garston Ladies FC is certainly moving forward and are now an FA Charter Status club, intending to continue to provide an ongoing excellent service to girls football in Watford and the surrounding areas.
There is a long way to go yet but Garston are determined to succeed in achieving their raison d'etre in providing football for all girls regardless of background, creed, religion, ability or ethnic origin. The club is continuously looking to improve the facilities it can offer and is interested in talking to companies or individuals interested in sponsoring or supporting the club in other ways.
So after another successful and enjoyable season it is time for Garston to once again turn thoughts to the future and specifically to recruiting new players for 2007-08 season, as a competitive but friendly club that desires to continue its enviable growth by offering competitive ladies football to as many players as possible. Next season they hope to offer league football at junior level from under-10s to under-16s, together with an under-9 nursery squad - any new players under the age of 16 should contact Ray Smith by e-mail on email@example.com and three ladies adult teams for players from 16 to ?? - new players should contact Andy Roads by e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org.
So experienced or new, young or not so young, Garston can offer you the opportunity to experience ladies/girls football at a level that suits you whether you want competitive football or just to enjoy training and to keep fit. For more details, visit www.garstonladiesfc.co.uk.
