They are all very friendly and understanding. It’s just unique, we all from different ethnicity and backgrounds coming together and play as one.
The first FA Mars Just Play funding we received was vital to us setting up as a team with us being able to subsidise training sessions whilst we engaged more women in the club through trainings.
Through the first grant, we ran 10, 1 hour, training sessions at The U-Mix Centre, engaging 23 women in total with a core of 16 players, with most of these 16 players wanting to register for AFC Unity’s first ever season in the Sheffield and Hallamshire Women’s Country Football League.
I really wanted to start playing football again as it was a massive part of my life! I really wanted to get involved with AFC Unity particularly because of the ethos and the future of being involved with the team.
