The Maidenhead United Ladies team management are looking for new players and a coach.
It has been fantastic to watch the Women's Football at the Olympics this year, and see the sport gaining momentum. Anyone watching the USA and Canada match this week cannot fail to be both impressed and entertained, and the Final on Thursday should be amazing.
So if you've been inspired to raise your game, why not give us a call (see below) to find out more? Heres what we're looking for...
Players need to be over the age of 16.
Any ability is welcome, as we have a Reserve and First team to cater for all levels.
Girls will be required to train 7pm - 9pm on a Tuesday evening, and play on a Sunday afternoon.
There is a signing on fee - usually around £150 for the first season - which includes a full training kit. This can be negotiated though, as we would rather players play, than worry about financial difficulties.
Re coaches, we ideally would like 2-3 coaches to split between both teams.
A minimum of FA Level 1 Coaching experience is required.
Again they would be required on a Tuesday evening and Sunday afternoon.
Unfortunately we are not in a position to offer payment at the moment so it would be completely voluntary, however we would consider helping out with travel expenses if possible.
Aaron O'Brien, 22, has already joined us as a new First Team coach this season. He is looking to complete the UEFA B coaching course this season. Aaron has been coaching for seven years, including Burnham Youth u18's who play in the Allied Counties, and Burnham Reserves who play in the Hellenic League. A warm welcome to Aaron![/i]
What level do we play at?
The First Team will be playing in the Premier Division of the Southern Region Womens Football League.
The reserve team will be playing in Division 1 of the Thames Valley Counties League.
Both teams did relatively well in their respective leagues - both finished 5th i.e mid-table. The Reserves should be especially pleased, as due to a League reconstitution at the beginning of the season it meant that they were technically playing in a League higher than last season. They also had a number of young players come up from the Under 16’s and other players leave due to University commitments, so were using the season to get to know each other.
The First team achieved their aim of concreting their position within the League - one which is notoriously difficult to win - and involved a number of difficult games.
