18 May 2022

The female players in Brentford FC Community Sport Trust's post-16 group had a special invitation last week. The Trust runs a post-16 education and football programme for boys and girls. The female players were involved in an exhibition match against Queens Park Rangers.

The Bees were invited to play at Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium against the side representing QPR in the same programme. QPR came out on top but it was a great day for the female players. The young players were in their first year of the programe.

Amber Lloyd, Female Football Development Manager, at the Trust, said: "The girls have been fantastic! They have continued to develop both on and off the pitch and I'm very excited for the new season."

Pictures from the day can be seen on the Trust's Facebook page here.

The players earn educational qualifications while playing games and representing Brentford. Players can study for A Levels or a BTEC while training and playing games in competitive leagues. There are groups of male and female players.

The programme is run in association with West Thames College. Players get the chance to player competitively regularly and some have gone on to join professional clubs. See more here.
