Double-winning West Bromwich Albion Women are searching for sister clubs to create a stronger link with the communities and grassroots clubs in the local area.
After a successful season for WBA Women, clinching the FA Women’s Division One Midlands title and winning the FA Women’s National League Plate, there has never been a more exciting time to be a part of the Women's setup at West Bromwich Albion.
Clubs that sign up to the initiative will have access to the following opportunities within a package:
- Match Day packages with West Bromwich Albion Women FC which will involve being flag bearers, mascots and walking out with the players before kick-off.
- WBA Women players will also make appearances at the sister clubs, and match day experiences are available for playing on the pitch before a WBA Women’s fixture.
- Sister clubs will also have access to training days during half-term and female coach mentorships.
- Continued professional development at West Bromwich Albion Regional Talent Club or Girls Player Development Academies, with the aim of enhancing coaches’ skills and knowledge within the female game.
For Lauren Affron, Girls Football Coordinator at The Albion Foundation, the new project is the latest development in what has been an exciting campaign for Louis Sowe’s women.
“The main aim is that local clubs can access valuable initiatives for their female players who will be able to come and show their support and see that there is a huge future for girls’ football with the newly promoted Albion team,” said Lauren.
“We’re looking to enhance the local area that we work within and make sure that the game continues to evolve and grow, so we want to make sure that we’re giving back to local grassroots clubs,” she said.
Bronze, silver and gold packages will be available for season 2019/2020. To register your interest for being a sister club and access further details, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
