Welwyn Garden City Ladies
« on: July 02, 2007, 11:31:16 PM »
Not everyone's doing a Charlton:-
Welcome At Welwyn
Former FA Premier League side, Langford, have changed their name and will be playing in the South East Combination next season as
Welwyn Garden City LFC.

The Hertfordshire side have provided the ladies team with equal status within the club and also equal representation at committee level.

Manager, Paul Bright, commented:
"How many teams do you know who would have cancelled the men's home fixture on the Saturday, had the chairman and his committee start working on the pitch at 7.00am on the Sunday morning, to ensure that our FA cup game could go ahead!"

"WGCFC have a thriving social club, the girls and many parents and friends have joined and we couldn't have been made anymore welcome. We started last season groundless, the manager resigned after the first fixture and we had minimum players. We finished being part of an excellent club, still a bloody useless manager (me) and a fantastic squad of players, achieving 5th place in the league, FA Cup Quarter-Finals and County cup champions."

"For the 2007-8 season, the club is targeting high quality new players, keeping the current squad and with a good start I see no reason why WGCFC should not be competing for the title. Having lost two cup games (one of those being against Everton) and one league game in the last twenty of the season, is a good indicator of how strong the club finished."

"We have excellent coaching staff including dedicated goalkeeping, a qualified physio who attends every training sessions and all fixtures and good support. Our first friendly fixture is against Watford on 29th July. We hope to have the new sponsorship deal in place and demonstrate that we intend to follow Watford up the leagues."

Welwyn are seeking high quality new players to compliment the current squad. Open trials are being held on Wednesday 4th July, 7-9pm and Saturday 7th July, 11am- 1pm at Welwyn Garden City FC, Herns Way, Welwyn Garden City, AL7 1TA.

Welwyn's coaching staff include a dedicated goalkeeping coach, plus a qualified physio who attends every training session and fixture. So if you have the commitment and desire to play at this level please contact;
Paul Bright: or 07860614714
Steve Chivers: or 07828547146
Andy Day: or 07802191253

Players must at least 16 on 31st August 2007 and will need to bring kit and footwear to train on grass.
