Garston on the move!
 Women's Football News 18 May 2009
Garston on the move! - 18 May 2009 - Women's Football NewsGarston are on the move again, as they announce that agreement has been reached with the Metropolitan Police Sports Ground, Bushey, for both senior and junior teams to use their fantastic playing and social facilities from 2009 - as they see their first team win the league and move into the Premier Division of the London & South East League.
"It hardly seems possible," says Garston manager Andy Roads, "that our little club, started in 1996 with one seven-a-side under eleven, age group, squad, playing on a single school playing field at Lea Farm School in Watford should in 2009 find itself running junior teams from Under-9 to Under-15 (and growing) and four adult ladies teams. Maybe even more amazing is that several of the players who started out in that first ever team are still playing for the club and will next year find themselves playing for the in the London & South East League Premier Division and, to cap it all, they, along with the many players who have joined us since, will find themselves playing on some of the best pitches, with the best facilities anywhere in the local or surrounding areas.
"I don't think anybody involved back in 1996 could have ever dreamed of the success that would follow. Success not just on the pitch in terms of Leagues won, County Cup final wins and appearances, League Cup final wins and appearances and seeing Garston Ladies' name appear in the F.A.Women's Cup draw but also success off the pitch in terms of offering football to so many girls/ ladies throughout Watford and the surrounding areas and in terms of seeing so many lasting friendships grow and blossom over the years,
"One thing is for sure, we are about more than just winning football matches, we also know how to celebrate - win or lose, players from all four of our senior teams can be found socialising together after matches. Our four teams may be selected on merit for matches but once those matches are over we are truly one club and all players are equal, many of our senior players past and present help manage, coach and support our junior section teams, how many clubs can honestly say that they can boast that sort of togetherness?
"We are proud to offer girls football at a vast range of age groups from Under-9 through to adult football, with around 160 playing members aging between 7-45ish and with the numbers growing each week. However we are always looking to expand and welcome all new players regardless of age, ethnic creed or ability - our only acceptance criteria is that you are female, want to play football and be a part of Garston Ladies FC.
"We have been affiliated to the Hertfordshire FA since the club was founded and our junior teams play games in the Home Counties Girls League and the Herts Girls Football Partnership League. Our four senior teams are currently playing in the Greater London League and the London & South East Regional League (Premier Division from next season).
"We have deservedly won a reputation for being a competitive but friendly club and were delighted to be awarded the FA Charter Standard in recognition of the high standards and best practice that we apply to running Garston Ladies FC. The club has also backed many of the FA's new schemes, such as the Respect Campaign, by helping maintain high standards on the touchline during matches.
We aim to provide a caring environment within the club where players can develop their skills and enjoy their football. Whilst we are a competitive club playing in competitive leagues, we recognise that the actual playing of matches is only one aspect of what we do. We firmly believe that taking part in organised team sports can be extremely beneficial in developing the social skills, team work and self-confidence that all people need during their lives. Fundamental to our approach is the belief that football should be fun otherwise it's not worth doing in the first place!
"We are continuously looking to improve what we can offer and are interested in talking to companies or individuals interested in sponsoring us or supporting the club in other ways.
So if you fancy the challenge of ladies football, young or not so young, experienced or new to the game, Garston Ladies FC probably has an age group or a team that can match your requirements so why not have a look at our website www.garstonladiesfc.co.uk or e-mail Andy Roads on garston.ladies@ntlworld.com."
