Cowes Youth U16’s Girls FC have received brand new sponsorship from Wightlink.
Each year, Wightlink support a number of sporting teams and organisations on the Island by providing discounted travel. Their main objective is to enhance life on the Island by supporting individuals and youth development on the Island.
Cowes Girls was founded in 2018 with the help of Cowes Ladies promoting the team and encouraging girls from across the Island to play football. They finished the 2018-2019 season top of the Hampshire Girls Youth Football League and went into the 2019-2020 season, known as League Champions. The team currently sit 4th in the League table with a few games still remaining and they also have big plans for next season.
Head Coach, Martin Wragg said:
“As a team, travelling away a lot during the season, the majority of our costs are spent in travel, so it’s much appreciated that Wightlink can help.”
Christina Cave, Manager commented:
“We enjoy watching girls and women’s’ football grow on the Island, but we want to go that step further and provide opportunities and support to our players to encourage them to take the right paths in life and with the extra savings, we can put more funding into player development off and on the pitch.”
