A new initiative to get more girls involved in football is coming to Braintree.

The FA and SSE have launched a Wildcats Girls Football Centre at Great Notley Discovery Centre.

Weekly sessions will be held at the park, and provide a safe environment for girls to have fun, make new friends and engage with football.

There will also be family sessions, where parents and carers can get directly involved with sport.

To find out more about the scheme, call 01371 829216 or email wildcats@mrfa.co.uk.
