For the first time in a long time NPTFC will have a team playing ladies football!
Two local U16's squads have come together to merge and create a brand new U18 Ladies team here at NPTFC, fittingly nicknamed the Swans. Together with the Under 10 Signets we hope this is the start of a successful ladies section of the club.
The Swans formed after the Managers of Aspley Guise U16 and Mk City U16, who played in the Bucks Girls Football League, took a long hard look at what they would need to form a viable squad capable of playing, and surviving, in the difficult U18's Thames Valley League.
Because of their age, schooling commitments and jobs we knew we needed at least 18 players and luckily, around ten from each team have committed to join us to play next season. However, that is still barely enough and we would welcome any new members who have previously played to league standard or are outstanding in their school or local team but not yet had the opportunity to shine at a larger club. We would like a squad of 20-24 as recommended by the league and we currently have 18.
We have been given from the club some hand me downs boys kit to play in(!) but would love to have a sponsor to promote on a brand new kit so if you are interested or know someone, or some company, who may be interested we would love to hear from you.
Please look out for us and say hello as we have already started to train at the club on a Thursday evening and Saturday mornings.
The Swans Management team, players and parents are all looking forward to becoming part of the NPTFC family!
