Shropshire Girls & Womens Football League
The Shropshire Girls & Womens Football League (SGWL) is an amateur football league for girls and women in Shropshire, England. It was founded in 1995 and currently has over 100 teams competing in a variety of age groups.
The SGWL was founded in 1995 by a group of local women who wanted to provide more opportunities for girls and women to play football in Shropshire. The league started with just a few teams, but it has grown steadily over the years. In 2022, the SGWL had over 100 teams competing in a variety of age groups, from under-8s to under-16s.
The SGWL is divided into three divisions: Division One, Division Two, and Division Three. The top teams in each division are promoted at the end of the season, while the bottom teams are relegated. The SGWL also runs a number of cup competitions, including the Charity Cup and the Management Cup.
The SGWL has produced a number of talented players who have gone on to play for professional clubs. In recent years, players from the SGWL have represented England at youth level, and some have even gone on to play for the senior team.
The SGWL is committed to providing opportunities for girls and women to play football in Shropshire. The league is currently working on plans to expand the number of teams and age groups, and it is also looking to improve the quality of the facilities available to players.
