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.”
