From a baptism of Fire to gaining Premier Status. Well done to all Team Players, Coaches and Parents.

 

 

Merseyrail
Merseyrail Bootle was formed in 2013 and we entered a team in to the Liverpool County FA Girls league. In the February of 2014 we attended a meeting with Merseyrail and was asked if we would set up and run the youth section.

In the May of 2014 we had an open day and invited girls along who may have been interested in giving the game a go. We had 9 girls on that first day and 3 of them are still there and have improved a great deal.

We played in a couple of tournaments and had several friendly’s before the season started. Our first season was the 2014/15 season. To say this was a baptism of fire is an understatement. We suffered many heavy defeats and all credit to the girls they still came along to training each week and trying to improve themselves.
When your losing each week this takes a lot of determination from players coaches and parents. As coaches me (Tommy Cook) and Ste cavanagh said things will get better we just have to keep putting the effort in.

After the xmas break things did start to improve. When your losing 10-0 every week losing 7-0 is an improvement. The margins of defeat came down as we whittled away. It got to the stage towards the end of the season where we where not losing games until the final minutes.
This was the improvement the girls had made as a team. Then came the day we won a game. We beat St Helens 2-1. The look of joy from everyone involved in the team was great to see.

We then had enough girls to enter 2 teams in the league and we had our u10s and U11s. We entered summer tournaments and did well in a couple. We even won one mini tournament in Maghull.

In our 2nd season the 2015/16 season our new U10s more than held their own and our U11s finished 2nd in the league. We should have won the league but we where piped to it by Brazil. They had to put up with some unkind comments from a rival manager who asked how the hell where we top of the league. A good 3-0 drubbing answered his question.
Last Season we entered our 3rd team in to the league. Our New U10s have had a difficult season but their improvement is there to see. We are confident we can compete next season. Mike Alcock, Megan Mackay and John Manion are their coaches and they will nurture them along and develop them in to good footballers.
We have our u8 development squad in training already and under coaching from Rebecca Sansbury we are confident they will be ready for their first season of competitive football.

As a club we are trying to encourage girls to play football improve fitness and create a team spirit. This season U10s have such a great team spirit that at the presentation night they where still tripping the light fantastic at 12.30am while the rest had gone home.


It takes many people to help make a good team and in our sponsors new start we have had nothing but fantastic support. They have been with our older team from day 1 and we are grateful to have them support us, as we are the other teams sponsors.


We want the girls to have long careers and hopefully successful ones at that. I started by mentioning our ladies team so ill mention them in finishing with them. They have been promoted 3 season out of the 4. They won the Liverpool league and where promoted to the North West women’s regional league. Then last May gained promotion to the premier division. This is a high standard of football. What we are trying to achieve for the younger girls is to get to that standard where they will move up to our women’s team in time. Or even higher, maybe professional level. That’s for the future but that’s our aim.
