Local sessions being run through the Weetabix Wildcats programme by Brentford FC Community Sports Trust are about to get underway. The Football Association and The EFL Trust have partnered to provide an increased opportunity for girls across the country to play football through programme. It aims to inspire more 1,600 girls to take up football in their local community through Weetabix Wildcat sessions delivered by 34 EFL Club Community Organisations (CCOs) from across England, such as our Trust.
The EFL Trust is the charitable arm of the EFL and was established in 2008 to oversee the work of EFL club community organisations, such as Brentford FC Community Sports Trust. It is responsible for distributing core funding from the Premier League and The PFA to each CCO and highlights community work done by clubs across the country. Our Trust has worked with the EFL Trust for more than a decade and many projects are still ongoing.
Weetabix Wildcats helps girls aged 5-11 get involved with football for the first time with others their own age. The programme gives girls the opportunity to play football in a fun and friendly environment, providing the perfect setting for youngsters to stay active, build confidence, and meet new friends. Our Trust is delivering Wildcats sessions at Gunnersbury Park.
The sessions take place in the new sports hub at Gunnersbury Park every Wednesday from 5-6pm. The first is tomorrow, Wednesday 22 June. They will run for 16 weeks. See more here.
