The Clapton CFC 5s coaches and players appeared on Threads Radio to chat about grassroots women’s football, finding community in sport and the history of the club.
The women and non-binary open training sessions began as a spark in the minds of coaches Ellie Guedella and Julie Leaff.
What started as a few people showing up for a kickabout on Hackney Downs back in August has now grown to 20+ women and non-binary people turning up to training each week.
From this, the Clapton CFC 5s team were born who compete weekly in the Super 5 League – and they’re doing well!
Coaches Ellie, Julie and Byron along with CCFC 5s player Annabel Staff were invited along to speak about all this and more.
Listen to stories of how the training started, what it was like to be born under the FA ban on women’s football, and intimate insights into how being involved in the training and the 5s team has changed peoples lives.
