Women's Club Focus - Culdrose Ladies

On Tuesday 21st February Warren visited Culdrose Ladies FC at there training evening to catch up with Manager Ciaran Nash and his players.

Having spent some time watching the session and witnessing the enthusiasm of this young group of players it certainly wasn't apparent that the results and position in the league had had any adverse affect upon them. The session content was concentrating on pressing the ball as individuals and units of players. the session then flipped to possession when they broke into a small sided game. It was varied and enjoyed with an enthusiastic approach from all involved.

Culdrose Ladies benefit from using the artificial surface on the air base during the winter months before returning to grass at the club when the lighter evening return.

After the training session we returned to the Club Pavilions to have an informal chat about the game in Cornwall and individual views about their participation

Discussion points were:-

  • League football - experiences and competing 
  • Players - length of involvement, thoughts towards the future
  • Female game in Cornwall adult & youth
  • Additional formats of the game
  • Links with Club youth and opportunities for female Coaches & Referees
  • Club Mentoring 

Looking forward to supporting Culdrose Ladies & Girls FC achieve their aims of growing their provision and an offering of all age groups for female football.

Women's Club Focus - Mullion Ladies

On Thursday 23rd February Warren visited Mullion Ladies FC at Mullion School Indoor Sports Hall to chat with players and manager Kevin James.

There were only 4 players in attendance but this did not detract from a structured session working on building play to create shooting opportunities. The players enjoyed and embraced what Kevin was coaching and certainly provided outcomes from his session.

Mullion Ladies have been at the School for quite a few months due to floodlight issues at there home ground Clifden Parc.

The friendly players took time out to chat about their challenges and their thoughts about female football in Cornwall.

Discussion points were:-

  • League football - travel, league format and fairness and ethos 
  • Players - impacted by Injuries, marriages and pregnancy.
  • Small Sided football.
  • Opportunities for female coaches & referees
  • Vulnerability with no youth players
  • Linking training sessions with local club Mullion Ladies
