A new Super 5s League season has just started and we have two CCFC teams taking part with largely new players.
Clapton CFC Belters are in the Beginners B League on Tuesdays
Clapton CFC Massive are playing in the Flexi League on Thursdays
Two more teams may seem familiar too as they used to play as Clapton 5s.
Now they have become established they have gone independent and become self-funded. Some of these players have also gone on to the development or the first team.
The Bangerz are in the Beginners A League
And DalsTon are in the Intermediate B League
That means other women get to come through and try beginners competitive football as Clapton CFC.
All games take place on one of the 3G pitches at Mabley Green in Hackney, and they’re 20 minutes each way.
Supporters are welcome to come along, it’s free entry, and games are quick, attacking and exciting.
Here are the fixtures for the new season for our CCFC teams…
We’ve already won league titles, and brought through players to the first and development teams, so the 5s have been a huge success story already.
The 5s teams are among those who train on Saturday mornings from 10am to 12 noon under coaches Ellie Guedalla and Julie Leaff.
The training at Gainsborough pitches, East Bay Lane E15 2GW (opposite Here East) is open to any women or non-binary people of all ages and abilities. There’s no cost, but donations are welcome.
Finally, we need a female coach/helper at the games for the Clapton Massive on Thursdays to provide some oversight and support.
For more information on that role, or the open training, drop Ellie an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
