GIRL POWER⚽️👊Head coach Leo Kennedy gives an update on Newcastle Benfield Girl Section

Really good start to the season overall for the girls. There’s been changes made throughout from new coaches, new players and even moving to new leagues but the girls section is as strong as ever

U9 girls

What a team this group are! Unbeaten in the league, scored over 50 goals and conceded just 1, not bad for a team that doesn’t have a keeper. Individually talented and advanced for their age we are all really excited by the potential this team has.


The football this team is capable playing is outstanding and a joy to watch. Huge personalities both on and off the pitch with each player developing significantly over the past 6 months in particular. 4 of our girls being challenged by playing up in the U12s and 3 competing in boys teams on a Sunday. Currently sitting 2nd in the league having only lost 1


A revamped team with lots of new players coming in during the summer and a new coach. Another team that are on a really good path and have just been promoted into the premier division. It will be a tough test but the girls looking forward to the challenge


Currently sitting 5th in the league after winning the 2nd division last season. Pretty much a completely changed squad still managed to hit the ground running after a tough summer. A team with a lot of potential and looking forward to watching their development now the new girls have settled in


A hugely tough start for the girls with a very small squad being hit with 3 nasty injuries. A real together group of girls who pour their heart and souls into games. Currently sitting within touching distance of top spot in a very competitive league. There’s no one this team can beat on their day


A big task for these girls after making the decision to move to a new league that would be a far bigger challenge against well established quality teams. Although results haven’t gone our way there’s no doubt that the girls deserved more due to the performances they put in and football they’ve played. Looking to now push on having got our first win under our belts
