Things got tense at times during Sunday's FA People's Cup action in Manchester

Transition (16-18)

Transitioning from Youth to Adult Football

Gloucestershire FA wants to support young female players transitioning from youth to adult football.

The Gloucestershire County Women’ League and Bristol Women's Football Casual League offers players the chance to play in open aged football from the age of 16 in either their traditional 11v11 league.

However if you don’t feel quite ready to make the step into adult 11v11 football just yet then you can join the the new GFA Women’s Football 9s, or the new Women's Summer 7s league.

Finding it hard to balance your studies, social life, football and part-time job? Gloucestershire FA also have Turn Up and Play and Walking Football sessions that you can play in from the age of 16.

Check out the interactive map below to see all the Adult Female Clubs within the County. You can also use our 'Find Football Near You' tool at the bottom of the page to find clubs near you or contact our Football Development Officer with the details in the Get In Touch box.

Reporting Concerns


If you feel that an adult connected to your league or club (e.g. a referee, coach or a volunteer) is mistreating someone under the age of 18, there are various confidential ways you can report this.

By ‘mistreating’, we mean behaving towards under-18s in a physical or verbal way you believe is threatening or makes the young person feel scared or bad.

Find out more and watch a short film The FA has produced explaining how to report your concerns. Of course, everything is completely confidential.
