The Word in the Wood #4

Posted on 20th May, 2019

Despite our teams' football seasons at an end, many of our sides continue to train over at our beautiful Pursley Playing Fields facility, while our U16 Girls took on a tough assignment last Saturday with a friendly away to the League Champions. Despite missing several key players the girls were very competitive, with their latest new signing - Megan - impressing the massed ranks of home support with her endeavour, technique and attitude. Player of the match went to the human cat - Georgie - who played a blinder, flinging herself around like a commando on the assault course!


Our new U9 girls team will start training very soon and we are delighted to have a raft of budding Woodettes ready and waiting to begin their footballing journey. Borehamwood 2000 have been invested in girls football for nigh on ten years now and that experience, and no little success, makes us the go to club for girls football in Borehamwood, Shenley and Barnet.

Through years of first hand experience, we've come to understand the female game just isn't the same as the boys, with a far greater level of sensitivity and understanding required to boost confidence and unlock the wonderful technique inherent in so many young ladies.

At our club, a young girl can look around her on a Saturday morning and see scores of older girls playing on the surrounding pitches, inspiring and reassuring them at the same time.

Our rich history in girls football proves we are not in it short term or to make a fast buck, and a realistic dream of ours is to be the first club in the wider area to field a senior female side in the future. With our U15 & U16 teams growing older every year, we believe we have the nucleus of young ladies to do this too.

So, if you've a daughter looking to try out something new and fun, and you want her to do this in a friendly, understanding environment full of like minded girls, Borehamwood 2000 is the football club for you.


Now, we hear you say, what about the boys! Well our two young sides - U9 & U11 - are coming along very nicely indeed, with the U9s moving from 5aside to 7aside, and the U11s from 7aside to 9aside. As such, tactical training is continuing through the summer and both teams are picking up the new challenge very readily. We have a spare space or two in both our talented squads so, if your interest is piqued, fill out our new player form and get in touch!
