Bradley Stoke Ladies’ football team has started its third season in the Gloucestershire County Women’s Football League, playing its opening match on Sunday 17th September.
The season had already got off to a great start with the news that the squad had successfully secured funding through South Gloucestershire Council’s Member Awarded Funding scheme, which supports local voluntary community groups.
Team manager Martin Lee said:
“The club would like to thank local South Gloucestershire Councillors Paul Hardwick, John Ashe, Roger Avenin and Brian Hopkinson for supporting and sponsoring the application. Special thanks to Paul who managed the process for our application on our behalf. The money will be used to purchase new football kit for the team.”

The Bradley Stoke Ladies’ squad trains every Tuesday at Bradley Stoke Community School. Any players interested in joining the club can email Martin Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
