The new Camden & Islington Girls’ League is to be launched in September following a successful series of weekly coaching sessions at Market Road.

Ten teams have already signed up for the league, which will get under way with five-a-side games on Friday September 9 and seven-a-side fixtures from the following Sunday.

Acerbis UK will be the league sponsors, providing equipment and new kits to every team that joins up, while Archway-based London Trophy Company are supplying trophies and medals for the cup competition.

The coaching sessions, which are being held each Friday (6pm-8pm) at Market Road until July 22 and are open to girls aged six to 16, also resume in September.

League secretary Karen Green, who headed the campaign to introduce a girls’ section, said: “It’s been very rewarding to see the girls enjoying the coaching sessions. Now we just want them to play and develop and hopefully we’ll see the league grow.”

Teams interested in entering the league should call 07785 224 888 or email greener106@btinternet.com for more information.
