FOOTBALL: HILLMORTON football club has joined forces with a borough primary school which will provide the setting for home games.
Paddox School has allowed Hillmorton’s Under 7s team to make use of its facilities as the club continues to build on the success of last season.
The club – which is Rugby’s longest serving junior football team – prioritises child welfare and provides coaching to boys and girls from the age of four up to 16.
In addition to the club’s partnership with Paddox School, coaches are also on the lookout for young female players to join the team’s first ever Under 13s girls side.
The club so far has attracted four girls to play – and another six are needed if the team is to enter next year’s league.
With women’s football seemingly at an all time high, on the back of a FA Cup Final watched by more than 35,000 at Wembley, Ian is hoping improved publicity in the sport can help attract new members to his latest team.
