Footie 4 Females

In May 2017, Upton JFC launched Footie 4 Females.  The first sessions were very successful and The Cheshire (formally County Offices) offered a Monday night slot for training. Jeanette Roe, McDonalds franchisee for Chester, donated coaching equipment  and Cheshire FA offered financial support with Women’s Recreational Funding.

Since this start, Footy 4 Females has engaged female players of all abilities and levels of fitness; some have played football previously and others haven’t exercised for a long time (if at all).

The 2017/18 season is now well under way, with club coach, Niall Hickey, taking the sessions which are a mix of football and fitness (approx 30 mins of circuits and 30 mins 5/6/7 a side). The age of the players range from 18 to 55, so everyone is welcome. Fees are £3.00 per week on a pay and play basis, so come along or contact organiser Lindsay Carrington by email at for more information.

Thanks to McDonalds for sponsoring the training

The “team” has played in some friendly tournaments and done themselves proud. It’s all about the fun.
