The Football Association (FA) has recognised a Worle club for its work in promoting the game for girls.

Team Mendip Football Club has been named as an FA Wildcats Centre, which are clubs which provide girls aged five to 11 with regular opportunities to play football.

Head coach Jack Edgar said: “We are one of the only clubs in the area to be awarded it. It is a big thing for us.”

The club has teams starting with the under-nines, and goes up a women’s side.

An FA spokesman said: “The FA hopes the initiative will inspire participants to engage with football, meet new friends, develop fundamental skills, learn new things and create the foundation for a lifelong love of football.”

Weston Mendip Wildcats sessions take place at @Worle on Saturdays from 9-10am.
