The club has been involved in consultations with Knowsley Council and other stakeholders regarding potential grant opportunities that may become available locally to help engage with local women to provide opportunities for football activities.
This is something the club fully supports and aligns with the plans made to start a junior section which was paused when the first lockdown happened to help us grow our own women’s teams.
‘Active through Football Consultation – Women in Football’
Knowsley Council is working with the Football Association for Merseyside and other Merseyside councils to put together a bid to Sport England for Active Through Football funding. The funding aims to increase activity levels and create sustained behaviour change through football. If successful the project in Knowsley will target women with a specific focus on women 16-25 and 45+. To support the bid a consultation questionnaire has been developed and we are hoping that as many women as possible will complete the questionnaire which will help shape the future of the project in Knowsley.
The link to the bid is as follows
