Garforth Villa JFC was formed in 1970 and has provided a safe, enjoyable football environment for children to learn the game we all love for nearly 50 years.

Girls Football Kicks Off At Garforth Villa JFC

2019 marks a historic moment for the club with the very first games for our girls teams being played this weekend. It’s exciting time for the club and one which we are all hugely proud of.

It was a proud moment for our Coach Arron Sekhri, who for the past few months has been working towards completing his FA Coaching qualifications. Our u9 and 10’s played their first football games at Rothwell. “It was amazing to see weeks of practice and hard work coming together” says Arron.

Emma Whitelow also saw our U11’s play their first match this weekend at Harrogate with an amazing 2-2 result! Emma joined the club recently and is doing an amazing job coaching the girls. “So proud of the girls today – Fantastic bunch! So privileged and honoured to have you as my team” says Emma. Their game was played at the Harrogate Town Stadium which was a superb venue for them to play at! It was amazing to see the huge support we had.

We agree, this is a fantastic achievement for all our girls’ teams. It’s great that we now have girls’ playing football at Garforth Villa JFC and a special shout out needs to go out Rob Fakes for all the hard work he’s put in getting girls football up and running at our club. A big shout out too to both Emma and Arron for stepping up to manage and coach girls’ football for us. It’s taken a lot of hard work from many people at the club so well done to everybody involved for getting this up and running.
