Opportunities for girls in football

We believe that every young girl should have the opportunity to experience our great game. To achieve that goal, we need to develop accessible and universal participation opportunities For All. The Robertswood Rangers Girls Football team will be supported by FA Level qualified coaches and sessions will run alongside our normal term time schedule 

(every Saturday from 9.45am-11.15am at the School Fields, Denham Lane, SL9 OEW).


This programme has been developed and designed through research, as we know girls have many motivations to Play; for Fun, Friendship, Fitness and Family. We need to ensure this programme embraces difference, through its delivery and that our Football team/s welcome girls of all abilities, backgrounds and experiences. Football has a unique power to change lives and unite our communities in ways little else can. There has never been a more important time for football to play its part in bringing our communities together and supporting girls to become physically active through football.


Please do come along on Saturdays  (starting on 3rd November) as we welcome all girls from within the school and wider community to come along and give it a go.


We look forward to welcoming you all to our club.


Many thanks in advance,

Adam Gleeson

Club Chairman

Grow the Game PRESS RELEASE OCTOBER 2018

Lionesses star Danielle Carter delighted by Robertswood Rangers’ funding success. England Women and Arsenal striker Danielle Carter has praised Grow the Game and Robertswood Rangers following the award of a £1,500 grant from the FA.

The grant, which will provide a boost to grassroots female football in Chalfont St. Peter (South Buckinghamshire), has paved the way for Robertswood Rangers to set up a girls’ team ranging from Reception (U5’s) through to Year 6 (U12’s).Danielle said: “I would like to congratulate Robertswood Rangers on working with the Football Foundation and Berks & Bucks FA to secure a Grow the Game grant. Playing in an all-female team from a young age was key to my development, so I am delighted that there will be more opportunities for women and girls in the local area and wish Robertswood Rangers girls’ good luck during their debut season!”

Grow the Game is a programme funded by The FA and delivered by the Football Foundation. It awards grants to grassroots football clubs wishing to create new teams, especially amongst under-represented groups. This year, £1,500 was made available for clubs looking to create new female and disability football teams to help towards the costs of FA coaching courses; FA league affiliation costs; referees’ fees; first aid kits; football kit and equipment.

Adam Gleeson (Club Chairman), said:As a club we are absolutely delighted to have been awarded a #GrowtheGame grant from @FA & @FootballFoundtn! This money will help us to get more women and girls playing football in an inclusive and fun environment. We can’t wait to now get started – brilliant”.
