Simon Elson said: “The Female Friendly Club Workshop is aimed at any clubs who want to make their club more inclusive to females.

“It will show you how to make your club more female friendly and how you can try and grow your female teams, Junior & Senior teams.

“This could be a club with no female teams or a club who only have one or two teams that wants some ideas on how to grow.

“This will be a great way to network with other clubs who may have female teams currently or have had them in the past or don’t have female teams but clubs can share their experiences and work together to grow female football on the Isle Of Man.”
