GIRLS FOOTBALL AT ASTLEY & BUCKSHAW JFC
Girls Football is central to Astley & Buckshaw’s future strategy. The club are passionate about providing equal opportunities for girls to train and play football at one of most progressive junior football clubs in the Chorley Area. Girls have always been welcome at the club, many have played in our mixed sex teams and in 2021 we introduced our very first girls team, now is the time to build on that team and create a full dedicated player pathway for the girls game from Under 5 to Under 18.
We hope to complement the existing girls teams around the Chorley area and provide new local opposition for the existing clubs and teams.
