Hi, I’m Richard, Lead girls coach and U8’s team coach

“My daughter joined Ropsley Colts Girls 6 years ago with coach Emma taking sessions with approx. 12 girls of all ages. My daughter did not know any of the other girls training but was met with a very warm welcome and was soon off and playing football with her new friends, and when we finished the session, wanted to know when she could come again. This was where my daughters love of football, and my passion for coaching girls football all started.

In the 6 years since Izzy joined Ropsley Colts, Girl’s football has grown massively. At Ropsley we have grown from 1 fantastic coach and approx. 12 girls training, to now having 9 fantastic coaches coaching over 50 talented girls in 4 teams, Under 8, Under 10, Under 12 and Under 14. All the teams are registered with the Lincs FA, and our older two teams play competitively in the Coop Lincolnshire Football League. We are a player first, result second club at Ropsley Colts and provide all the girls a safe, fun environment to develop and learn their football, and we still pride ourselves on giving the same warm welcome to new players that we received on our first day, making Ropsley more than just a team, but a football family”

“My time so far at Ropsley Colts has been such a big privilege to train and play matches, but my favourite bit is seeing my friends, it has been such fun. All the coaches are kind, funny and supportive. Even when times are hard, we are all there for each other”
