King's Lynn Soccer Club launches football coaching for school year females
In line with the FA Wildcats programme, King's Lynn Soccer Club (KLSC) have launched their own Lynn Lionesses programme of football coaching for females from School Year 7 and above.
KLSC Lynn Lionesses, an all youth female team, are showing off their 8:56 Foundation ‘It’s time to talk’ training tops, raising awareness for men’s mental health. They train on Thursday's between 6.30pm and 7.30pm at West Lynn.
Training is under floodlights for school Years 7 to 11 and anyone interested should contact Philip Yates on 07917384983.
Club secretary Yates explained that he is delighted with the success of the programme and wished more clubs clubs could be more pro active in arranging all female training.
Yates said: "Females are often overlooked in mixed football, often having to work twice as hard just to prove a point that they are equally if not better.
"Here they can be themselves, with no one to prove anything too. This also gives the females a sense of belonging regardless of ability.
"They really are a cracking bunch and get on exceptionally well, it’s a great team environment."
