Foundation to promote Dons Ladies and Girls tomorrow
AFC Wimbledon Ladies & Girls will be presented to the crowd at tomorrow’s Morecambe match – and they will be showing off their football skills at half-time.
Hosted by the club’s Foundation, tomorrow offers a valuable opportunity to promote AFC Wimbledon Ladies & Girls, which has teams ranging from Under-9s right through to Under-18s and a senior team.
As part of this, AFC Wimbledon Girls Under-12s will perform football skills at half-time tomorrow in front of thousands of fans at the Cherry Red Records Stadium.
Players from a new-look AFC Wimbledon Ladies team will also be present and they are enjoying a much-improved season in the London & South East Regional Women’s Premier Division. Manager Chris Lyons has guided them to three wins out of four so far this season and we will feature an interview with him in tomorrow’s programme.
Supporters should watch out for a Speed Kick competition outside the stadium tomorrow with funds raised gong towards AFC Wimbledon Ladies and Girls.
Special guests are also expected to attend tomorrow, including Nicole Meredith, who serves as Football League Trust Female Development Officer.
The funding is targeted at girls who are 14 years and above, but girls of all ages are also encouraged to take part in the sessions. This also offers a pathway into the AFC Wimbledon Ladies & Girls section for those that are ready to step up to competitive football. Funding support from the Football League Trust allows the AFC Wimbledon Foundation to deliver FREE sport for girls in schools and encourages them to continue to play at all levels.
The AFC Wimbledon Foundation have been working with young girls in local schools to deliver a range of activities that encourage participation. The success of this project so far is huge testament to the foundation staff. Their hard work has enabled the foundation to be successful in its funding bid to deliver it again.
