17 July 2015

Complex has great partnership with Blackpool Wren Ladies

Centre Facilities Manager for Fuse Football, Mick Horsfall, is encouraging as many local women as possible to take part in the sport.

Fuse enjoy a fantastic partnership with Blackpool Wren Rovers Ladies team, with the side using the impressive complex to train on during the week.

Horsfall, along with members of the Club’s community trust, are working tirelessly to promote girls football in the Fylde coast area.

He said: “We’ve got a strong partnership with Blackpool Wren Rovers Ladies and we were glad to have them come in because it’s an area we want to develop.

“Jason Sharp from the community trust is working very hard with myself to try and promote girls football in the area along with Lee Cadwallader from Wyre Sports.

“We just want to try and give girls the opportunity to take part in football, and provide them with a pathway so they can achieve in the game too.

“We’re trying to engage with the kids in the first instance, and are providing free girls coaching throughout the summer on Monday’s and Tuesday’s at Fuse.

“We’ve discussed yesterday with the Lancashire Football Association a framework to potentially provide girls with leagues and competitive football.

“It all starts from the bottom really and we’re going to be instrumental in building something if we get the foundations right.”

Monday will be a busy day at Fuse with Millfield High School engaging in a number of different physical activities.

Horsfall added: “The whole school will be coming down to Fuse on Monday to see the complex and have a good look at the place.

“They’ll also be engaging in different healthy and physical activities for all to take part in, so hopefully it will be a good day.

“The big thing we’re trying to do at the moment is to engage with as many local schools as possible, and obviously Millfield is a big school within the area.”
