Wolves Girls and Women will be holding their annual bucket collection at Molineux before Saturday’s game with Bristol City.
The female sides are part of Wolves Community Trust and have financial support from the football club and the Trust, but would not survive without player contributions, sponsorship and fundraising.
Skipper for the men’s team Samuel Ricketts and recent signing James Henry showed their support for the bucket collection this week when they met Wolves Women first team regular, Amber Quick.
Amber discussed how supportive the Wolves Fans are of the ladies side. She said: “Wolves fans are always extremely supportive of us.
“A lot of season ticket holders come down to Castlecroft to cheer us on and we always get a great reception at Molineux.
“This season in particular our following on twitter has grown and grown, so we really do feel part of the Wolves family!”
Wolves operate football squads for girls aged seven to adult. There are three squads in the senior section: Women's First Team, Women's Reserve Team and Under 18s. The First Team compete in the FA Women's Premier League Northern Division, and their home matches are played on Sunday afternoons at Castlecroft Stadium, Castlecroft Road, Wolverhampton, WV3 8NA.
Both the Reserves and Under 18s play at Bentley Leisure Pavilion, Bentley Road West, Walsall, WS2 0EA. The Reserves compete in the FA Midlands Reserve League on Sunday afternoons, and the Under 18s in the Central Warwickshire Girls’ Football League on Saturday mornings.
There are three squads in the junior section: Under 15s, Under 13s and Under 11s. All teams compete in the Central Warwickshire Girls’ Football League, with home games being played at Bentley Leisure Pavilion on Saturday mornings.
Details of all squads, fixtures and results can be found on the Wolves Community Trust website in the Sport section (wolvescommunitytrust.org.uk).
Look out for the players and their friends and families with their collection buckets before the Bristol City game. The collection helps towards match fees, training costs and transport and all support is greatly appreciated.
