Partnership to support players and coaches
Cambridge City Girls’ Football Club have become a sister club to Arsenal Ladies Football Club.
The partnership, which is until the end of August, is aimed at supporting the Lilywhites’ players and coaches.
And City, who run teams from under-nines to under-16s, will have access to provisions for their coaches.
“This is an amazing opportunity for our club to extend our coaching skills and to enable our players to experience first-hand the wonderful facilities Arsenal Ladies has to offer,” said City club secretary Kath Goodwin.
“With such a healthy youth section the future of the Cambridge City Ladies team looks very bright. Having Arsenal Ladies as a sister club makes this future even brighter.”
And Arsenal ladies’ development officer Tom Hartley said: “It is a real pleasure to have Cambridge City Girls on board as a sister club to Arsenal Ladies during the FA WSL Spring Series.
“The partnership is aimed to support coaches and players alike. As a sister club, the girls will get the opportunity to access tickets to Arsenal Ladies Spring Series fixtures, and play in a dedicated Sister Club Festival later in the year.
“In addition to this, the coaches at the club will have access to an online learning and development community, as well as the opportunity to attend two coaching development events aimed at supporting their growth as coaches.
“The sister club programme is a great way of connecting clubs like Cambridge City Girls with Arsenal Ladies, inspiring every girl to love the game.”
