Hereford City Council have awarded £5,000 to Herefordshire Football Association, to run a Euro 2022 Legacy project following the success from the England’s Womens National Side in the summer, which provides a range of opportunities including the chance to qualify as a coach for a heavily discounted rate, alongside CPD opportunities.
In Herefordshire, the women and girls game is growing at a rapid rate and there are a number of opportunities available from joining a local Wildcats Centres from the age of 5, progressing into the Herefordshire Girls League and joining the HFA Hereford FC Girls Development Centre, which will become an FA Emerging Talent Centre from the 2023/24 season, alongside the likes of Aston Villa and Birmingham City. Advancing to Women’s Football, players have the opportunity to play in our Womens Development League or the Midwest Counties, which sees over 30 Clubs across Herefordshire and 1000 Females playing each week.
The aim of our Herefordshire Lioness Legacy Project is to capture the legacy from the success of the Lionesses Team and to maintain and support the growth in female participation in Hereford.
