PRESS RELEASE BY AFCB Community Sports Trust 


Verwood Girls FC partnership with
AFC Bournemouth Community Sports Trust


AFC Bournemouth Community Sports Trust is pleased to announce that Verwood Girls FC have joined our ‘Linked Club’ programme.

The Linked Club initiative sees AFC Bournemouth Community Coaches work alongside the local football Club to deliver sessions to players, and also invite coaches to receive bespoke Coach Education and Continued Professional Development sessions throughout the Season.  

Along with this, teams from the Youth Club have the opportunity to attend sessions and have a tour of the facilities at the Vitality Stadium. Furthermore, the Community Sports Trust will run specific training sessions for the team and also host Soccer Schools aimed at the Clubs players and friends.

Andrew Battison, AFC Bournemouth Community Sport Trust: ‘We are delighted to be working in partnership with Verwood Girls FC. This is a great opportunity for the two Clubs to work together to develop, the already excellent provision that the Club have for all players in (and beyond) the local Community. Hopefully by working in partnership, we can only enhance the experience of the girls within the Club; along with offering the girls further opportunities through our new Girls provision at AFC Bournemouth.’
