England celebrate a Chloe Kelly (centre) goal at St. George's Park

Under 16s


There are so many exciting opportunities for young players to get into the local grassroots game.

From Mini-Soccer for youngsters taking their first steps in the game, to kickabouts for those who don’t want the commitment of joining a club.

England’s successes at the 2017 UEFA Women's Euro and 2015 & 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup - having reached the semi-finals of each of the last three major tournaments - captured the attention and hearts of the nation.

The bronze medal-winning Lionesses spoke of inspiring the next generation and creating a legacy. They certainly did just that – and The FA and Gloucestershire FA are here to foster that legacy.

Check out all the opportunities below to get involved in the local game by using the 'Find Football Near You' at the bottom of the page or use the contact details in the box to get in touch with our Women's and Girls' Football Development Officer.
