London boroughs welcome Girls' division
 Women's Football News 15 Aug 2008
Young female footballers in Essex' London Boroughs are being encouraged to put their skills into practise in the brand new Under-10 Division of the Essex County Girls League due to launch in September.
The Essex County FA are delighted to announce the creation of the new division, which will be specifically aimed at forming teams based in the London Boroughs of Newham, Havering, Barking & Dagenham, Redbridge and Waltham Forest. So far six teams have signed up and it is hoped this number will rise with the added incentive of an open affiliation system which will be operating up until December.
Sharon Brownlie, ECFA Girls & Women's Development Officer for the London Boroughs, commented: "The main reason for developing an Under-10 Division in the Boroughs was to give girls the opportunity to play football on a more localised level. Transport is a major issue for many families in these areas so it is hoped that by making the games closer to home more girls will be encouraged to play."
Teams will play friendlies up until the end of the year and will then have the opportunity to play competitive football until the conclusion of the season. It is hoped that by having a flexible approach to the division's organisation, more clubs will become interested in developing new girls teams mid-season.
Essex is one of the nation's leading counties in the development of the female game, with Sharon amongst those working to increase participation in the Boroughs and Emma Burden assisting in actively promoting the game in the outer Essex region.
The division has been developed under the banner of the Essex County Girls League, with all clubs required to affiliate with the ECFA as well as the competition. Clubs or groups of players interested in entering a team should contact Sharon on (01245) 393074 or e-mail sharon.brownlie@essexfa.com for further information.
