A Historic Weekend On The Horizon As Our Lionesses Get To Work



Writes: Sam Seddon-Davies


This weekend we create EAFA history as we will welcome girls from up and down the country to our inaugural Women’s National Team training camp at the Home of Amputee Football.


Trailblazer and Chelsea main-stay Shelbee Clarke says she is excited to bring her experience and expertise to the pitch and believes the squad will make a splash in the world of amputee football.


While the likes of Marnie Voak and Annabelle Kiki of the EAFA Junior programme are two young talents progressing into the senior levels of the charity, while Sarah Evans of the USA Women’s Soccer Team will also be in attendance.

The camp is an opportunity for players, coaches and staff to come together and officially launch the new programme.


Between 11am and 2pm at the Home of Amputee Football, there will be training exercises, shooting drills and small games as the girls get to grips with the action.


The Lionesses will be looking to roar onto the world scene as Saturday will kick off their journey to the Women’s Amputee World Cup in Colombia - a brand-new international competition scheduled for November 2024.


Tomorrow’s session will be the first of a series of training camps which will see the girls come together each month from the start of the new year.


Make sure to follow our social media pages to see all the action from across our historic training camp and watch the team develop as we get to work ahead of Colombia 2024.
