Girls in the South of the County are being encouraged to become the next England Lioness with regular opportunities to play football being provided by Laverstock & Ford Sports Club. These girls only sessions have been created for girls exclusively in a fun and engaging environment and have been running since April 2017 and are to run all year round.
It was recognised that there was a lack of opportunities in the area for girls to try football and see if it was for them and then go on to join a team if they decided they wanted to play regularly.

Good boxers have long been able to earn a decent living for themselves, these days; they can become celebrities and seamlessly cross over into other professions when they decide to call time on competing.
