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”.
