BURNHAM Junior Wildcats is a community football club looking to give girls aged 4-16 and female coaches the chance to get more involved in the sport.

The Wildcats welcomes people of various abilities and provides an opportunity to play football in a fun environment as well as help girls to develop together within a team or take part in coaching sessions.

The club also run an FA Wildcats Centre for girls aged 4-11 which focuses on co-ordination and basic learning of the game with a great deal of fun.

All the coaches are of an FA level one standard at least and the club is delighted to announce it now has four female coaches involved with the Wildcats teams.

Some girls are taking part in the Wildcats sessions to help youngsters as a part of their Duke of Edinburgh Award course. Some of the older girls have even tried officiating at training or in a mini soccer game.

Burnham Junior not only wants to help girls play football but to encourage and help more female coaches and officials.

The club also tries to do other activities together such as kayaking and paddle boarding as well as organising trips to Wembley to watch both the Ladies FA Cup final and England Lionesses.
