Burnham United Ladies are on the hunt for the next generation of female players after receiving a funding boost. 

The club has received a £1,500 ‘Grow the Game’ grant which is funded by The Football Association [The FA] and delivered by the Football Foundation.

It will enable Burnham Ladies to create a new reserves team for ladies aged 16+ and the club says that all skills and experiences are very welcome.

At the same time, the club will continue to grow its first team and provide a significant boost to female participatory opportunities in Burnham.

The Grow the Game scheme sees grants awarded to community football clubs wishing to create new teams, especially amongst under-represented groups.

This year, funding was made available for clubs looking to create new female and disability football teams, which can assist towards the costs of FA coaching courses; FA league affiliation costs; referees’ fees; first aid kits; football kit and equipment.

Grow the Game is delivered by the Football Foundation, the nation’s largest sports charity, and funded by The FA. Last year, and 479 clubs were awarded grants.
