Fleetwood High to represent FTFCFleetwood Town Community Trust hosted their first Girls Football tournament at Fuse Football this week.

It was another shining example of the Club giving back to the community with free hours on the Fuse 4G pitches.

“It is the Girls Cup for the Football League Trust and Fleetwood High won the competition. They will now represent the football club in the next round.
“They will go on to play different schools in the North West in January.
“It is important that we host events at Poolfoot Farm and Fuse Football and showing the residents that we are here for a reason to work alongside the local community.”
The schools involved on the day where winners Fleetwood High, Garstang Academy, Millfield High School, Cardinal Allen, Lytham St Annes High and Rossall.
Mark Cooper, a teacher at Lytham St Annes, told the Club website it is a brilliant that the girls can compete at Fuse Football.
He said: “We have competed in this competition for the last four years. It is a positive experience for the girls to come and play at Fuse Football.
“It is great that they can play football competitively. They are all enthusiastic and want to play football in the wind and the rain.
“It is great for the community. Poolfoot Farm is coming along fantastically and hopefully the set up will be a great thing for years to come.”
