There are so many ways for girls and women to join in, no matter what your age or ability level, whether you just want to have a kickabout with your mates or whether you want to be the next Steph Houghton.

Staffordshire FA Ladies Over 30's League

Women over 30 years old are getting the chance to be more than just football supporters.

Introduced during the 2016/17 season, Staffordshire FA launched their Ladies Over 30's league to allow ladies to keep fit and socialise in a format of the game that has little commitment.

With 7 teams already created, there is plenty of scope for more to get involved!
