Weather frustrates Flyers

THE foul weather has continued to frustrate Downend Flyers’ three women’s teams and 20 youth teams alike.

With so many games cancelled due to wet weather in the last few weeks, everyone is hoping that the New Year will bring a bit of sun with it!

In the meantime, we are all busily planning for the second half of our season across the club, and celebrating our successes so far this campaign, with a great FA Cup run from the first team and three youth teams gaining silverware in the Autumn Cups, so very well done to our U8 Falcons, U9 Swifts and U11 Rooks teams!

In our women’s set up we are also currently looking to expand our coaching team.

We are seeking an enthusiastic football coach with something to offer to the world of women’s football.

We’re looking for someone with passion for empowering, inspiring and motivating female footballers, and expertise in football coaching at various levels, who is prepared to embrace diversity and contribute to an inclusive team culture.

Downend Flyers FC are the largest female-only football club in the South West, with over 350 players.

Anyone who joins us will be part of a developing and ambitious women’s football programme, and have access to professional development opportunities funded by the club.

We’re really excited about the potential within our amazing football club, and we’d love to grow our team with people who are passionate about turning this potential into a reality.

If you are interested, feel free to get in touch (in confidence) for an informal chat – we’d love to hear from you.
