Celebrating International Women’s Day at Bromley FC

Bromley Football Club are proud to celebrate international Women’s Day!

We are a Club who prides itself on providing opportunities for Women and Girls, giving females a platform to pursue the sport they love.

We’ve worked hard to provide a pathway for girls from the age of 4, right through to women over the age of 30.

It all starts with our FA Wildcats sessions, which are for Girls aged 4-10. From there, girls have the opportunity to move onto our Girls Soccer School, which run weekly for 10+ year olds. This is an opportunity for youngsters to join our female youth teams, operational from U12s to U16s.

Then, comes the Girls 16-18 Academy, which has grown from strength to strength. Not only does this give girls the opportunity to pursue football, but also offers an educational side.

We also have a fully operational Bromley Ladies team, who play in the Greater London Women’s League, as well as the Bromley Belles, a recreational football scheme for women over the age of 30, who can simply turn up and play, or compete in tournaments!

Not only this, but we have some amazing and dedicated female staff off the field. Sue Whittaker (Academy Operations manager and Welfare officer), Emma Santer (Commercial manager), Jackie Robertson (Bar Manager), Chloe Browne (Events Co-ordinator), Keeley Deighton (Academy Pastoral Officer) and Andrea Ellis (Bromley Belles founder, Community coach) but to name a few (alongside some amazing matchday staff), are all integral parts of our operations, and we’d like to thank them for their dedication and wish them a happy International Women’s Day!

Bromley Football Club are proud to give women and girls the opportunities they deserve in football, and we look forward to many more exciting projects in years to come.
