The community spoke and we listened. Over the years we have received a lot of inquiries about when we will provide soccer teams for young girls. Well, we are very happy to announce that we are ready to start two development teams for both under 16 and under 18 year olds for the coming season. If you are a girl who is 15 years or older on September 1st and you want to try your hand at one of the two teams, we will be running open exams very soon. To express your interest in becoming a member, please fill out the form below and provide us with your details.

Our two girls development teams are trained by experienced coaches from Grimsby Town Football Club and they will train and participate in an extensive program of games in the Lincolnshire Co-op Women & Girls League every week. Both teams will forge a close bond with our women’s team, which has been incredibly successful since our first steps in women’s football just two years ago. The games take place on Saturday mornings, which means that players from existing Sunday league clubs also have access to our development teams through double registrations.

Commenting on the exciting news, Graham Rodger, Chief Executive of GTSET, said: “We are excited to offer girls additional opportunities for football development and it is a natural progression for us to now have a great senior women team firmly established in Grimsby Town. It is It’s gratifying to have a way for girls to join the club, and we hope that the result will be that young players from our junior and middle school football move up to the top women’s team. “

We also met with women’s team manager Dale Houlston, who shared his thoughts on the girls’ development teams: “I’m over the moon that the club continues to support the growth of female football,” he said, and 18 age groups represent a lot These are important stages in the development of players as they prepare for adult football, and the season ahead is particularly exciting as the Lincolnshire Women and Girls League is the first time the Lincolnshire Women and Girls League is making an U18 middle class possible, and that is vital.

“Until now, the only way for a girl to advance her game has been to jump straight into adult football without stepping in between. While this is fine for some players, it is far too early for the majority of them to realize that the physical demands of adult football can be far too early for them. Especially when these young players join adult teams that play in leagues from rank 6.

“So it is a fantastic opportunity for girls to join Grimsby Town and continue their development in the right player-centric environment, with all the necessary safeguards, and then move them into adult sports at the right pace. I am sure that a lot of enthusiastic and talented players want to come to us and I look forward to seeing them give it their all in the open trials. “

So there you have it, girls, a fabulous opportunity to become a part of Grimsby Town Football Club, put on your Mariners jersey, and make good progress in your football development. Who knows, one day you could play for the Grimsby Town first team. Register your details here and we will contact you shortly to confirm the trial dates.
