Ramsgate FC call out to girls and women as club looks to build on Lionesses success

Rams FC wants more girls and women to enjoy the sport

Ramsgate FC is hoping the success of England’s women’s team at the Euros and in this month’s world cup will encourage more women and girls to take part in the sport and help grow participation at the club.

Ramsgate FC has one of the largest girls and women’s sections in east Kent, with opportunities to play starting at age five, with their Wildcat sessions, all the way up to 35 and over with the veterans team – and something for every age in between.

The number of teams at the club and their successes have continued to grow and the Rams want to invite girls of all ages and experience to come and join in.

There are a number of opportunities available for girls and women at the club,

Open sessions at the WW Martin Community Stadium – first session free

Wildcats – for girls aged 5 to 11. Every Saturday from 9am to 10am.

Monday open sessions – for girls aged 12 to 16. Every Monday from 6pm to 7pm

Ramsgate FC chairman James Lawson

Rams FC chairman and owner James Lawson said: “Girls and women’s football has seen a fantastic growth over the last five years, with the success of the Lionesses increasing the number of girls who want to get into, or back into football.

“At Ramsgate we want to encourage this and have an amazing range of opportunities for everyone, be it those who have never kicked a ball before, right through to experienced players who are looking for a new club, which will help them progress further.

“The girls love having the opportunity to train and play at the brilliant facilities we have at the WW Martin Community Stadium – and I hope to see more join us in the upcoming season.”
