Horncastle Town FC are looking for junior players to join their team and represent the club against others local teams.

Town’s girls’ section started in the summer of 2014 and welcomes all ages between eight and16 years.

At the end of the 2014/2015 season, the club had managed to establish a good group of players who regularly train together.

The younger girls in the under-11 bracket played in two competitions and displayed great teamwork and support to each other.

The club welcome all abilities. It is a friendly group who train together on Tuesday evenings between 6pm and 7pm on The Oaks Meadow, next to the clubhouse on The Wong. All the club’s coaches are put through a DBS check.

Town are keen to enter competitions and will be organising friendlies with other local girls’ teams as they believe it is good for the development and enjoyment of their players if they can experience playing in friendly matches and competitions.

The club are running two taster sessions which are free to attend. These will be taking place tomorrow (August 18) and next Tuesday. The team will then continue to train on Tuesday evenings from September 1, which will cost £2 per session to attend.

If you are interested, pop along on a Tuesday and meet the team. Alternatively, contact the girls’ team coach Mick Helliwell via email at for more details.
