England Manager Gareth Southgate congratulates Beacon Hill JFC’s ‘Girls Aloud’ on their funding success

Girls Aloud Under 8 & Under 9s are celebrating after being awarded a £6,000 Grow the Game grant, something that has attracted praise from England Manager Gareth Southgate.

The grant, which will provide a boost to grassroots football in Beacon Hill, Hindhead, Surrey, has paved the way for ‘Girls Aloud’ to substantially grow the participation of girls in youth football at Beacon Hill. Building on the current success of thirty five female players at U10 and U11, the funding will help to provide kit, professional training and coaching to start two new girls teams at Under 8 and Under 9.

England Men’s Senior Manager and Football Foundation Ambassador, Gareth Southgate, said: “I am so pleased that ‘Girls Aloud’ has secured this Grow the Game grant. The club has worked very hard with Surrey FA and the Football Foundation to get more local people playing football so that they can enjoy the many physical and mental benefits that come with playing regular sport.

 “Grow the Game is mainly funded by The FA and delivered by the Football Foundation. This is money that is flowing from the very top of the game down to the lowest levels, to help clubs at the grassroots to bear the cost of starting up a new team, whether it be for a new kit, pitch hire or sending volunteers on FA accredited coaching courses.”

Grow the Game is a £2.5m programme funded by The FA and the Football Foundation. It awards grants to grassroots football clubs that wish to create new teams, especially amongst under-represented groups.

£1,500 is available to help FA-affiliated clubs with the cost of creating a new team, which might include the cost FA coaching courses; FA league affiliation costs; referees’ fees; first aid kits; and even football kit & equipment.

Alex Gowing, Vice Chair and Head Coach for Beacon Hill’s Girls Aloud, said: “We are very excited to have been awarded these funds over the next 3 years, the Grow the Game grant has given us the opportunity to take our plan for ‘girls only’ teams to the next level. We’re introducing a team into the youngest age group which is significant in laying a foundation for the future. In two years we have increased female membership from 1% to 10%, and this year we will reach a tremendous 20% with the support of the Football Foundation. Here come the girls!”
