The footballing girls at Blyth Town Barca are looking to bring new players to jointhe club for the new season ahead.

After yet another successful season in 2016-2017 when they won the County Cup and League Shield, they are wanting to produce further stars to follow in the footsteps of stars who have already played at the club and developed into professional footballers.

This week, the FA has launched its very successful Girls Football week. This week also sees the Women’s Euro Championships on television.

Did you know that England and Man City player Lucy Bronze played girls football at Blyth Town? Last year’s captain Steph Bannon and this year’s Sunderland captain Lucy Staniforth both played at Blyth Town, as did current Sunderland player Abbey Joice.

Many girls have worn the Blyth Town colours and have represented England CYP at youth level.

Blyth Town girls football provide a clear pathway for promising footballers to go to Sunderland Academy and great recent examples of that are Beth Guy and goalkeeper Emily Aldcroft.

For those girls who are going into school Years 9 or 10, want to join the best set up in the area for girls football at U15 level and fancy a new challenge, contact Jonathan on 07891050492 for more details, or log onto the website at
