KIDDERMINSTER Lions are enjoying a fine season thanks to the progress of two new girls' teams.

The under-10s and under-8s have both gone from strength-to-strength this campaign after attracting a host of interested girls from across the area.

Head coach Sally Haines said: "As a coach I am happy with their progress. The girls are very confident on the ball, using skills and taking players on, and scoring goals.

"We are now adding passing to their game and last week I witnessed a truly fine team performance with some great individual moments.

"Other coaches have commented on the girls skills and style so that is testament to their ability to learn and their desire to want to play football."

The under-8s have only just begun their league campaign so the emphasis for them has been on friendship as well as football.

Haines added: "At Kidderminster Lions I am always looking for opportunities for the girls and they have attended coaching sessions with sister club Birmingham City Women’s captain Kerys Harrop and their coaches.

"They also they have worked with Siobhan Hodgetts at Kidderminster Harriers and through that link the Man City and Lioness Jill Scott."

The club is continuing to build the girls section and is looking for players aged four or above or coaches and volunteers that want to get involved.
