Women’s Football Week (WFW) was established in 2012 to raise the profile of women’s football in Further Education and create further opportunities for female students to play and lead.
Rotherham United Community Sports Trust fully supports women’s football and aim to increase the participation of females in football. Throughout the years we have helped develop the skills and participation of over 375 women and girls in football. The Trust in partnership with Brinsworth Whitehill currently offers teams between the under 13’s and 18’s age group.
Additionally, RUCST continuously supports the Rotherham United Ladies that’s currently managed by Simon Walker.
To date we have established 5 new girls’ teams and have recently launched the Rotherham United Girls Development programme with the help of the funding from the Football League.
Jamie Noble, Head of Community said, “It is great to see the growth of female participation in football. The Community Sports Trust is committed to grow and sustain the participation of women and girls by providing a variety of programmes and teams in which they can get involve.”
Mark Wilkinson, Education Manager added, ““Here at the Education Academy we have a fantastic opportunity for young female players (16-18) to join our Development Squad where they can gain a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport and develop their playing skills in partnership with the Rotherham United Ladies FC”. If you are interested then please come along to our open evenings at 14th October, 2014 and the first Tuesday of every month starting from November 2014 – August 2015 at the New York Stadium. All our Open Evenings run from 5-6:30pm.
