A team of female footballers representing Brentford FC Community Sports Trust have started their first-ever season. The Trust started a post-16 education and football programme this month. Players can study for A Levels or a BTEC while training and playing games in competitive leagues.
The course started earlier this month and the team played their first ever game last week. Luton Town were the opponents and the Bedfordshire side got the win. See more below.

The Trust works with West Thames College and a number of partner schools to offer a football education programme for talented young footballers aged 16-18. Girls and boys can take part and trials are held each summer for the new intake. More on the programme can be seen here.
