Bristol Womens Football Casual League is growing!

Easton Cowgirls have two teams in the Bristol Womens Football Casual League this season, which kicked off last month. The Casual League was formed in 2012 with just 5 teams (3 of them Cowgirls) and has since grown to 12 teams, a league cup and an annual tournament. It aims to provide a welcoming and inclusive space for women of all abilities to play football in a fun and less competitive environment than traditional 11-a-side leagues.

The Cowgirls (especially Zoe, Harry and Soooooz) have played a big part in making the Casual League the flipping amazing thing it is today and it’s something we’re extremely proud of. BWFCL brings together a hugely diverse group of women with a common love of the beautiful game (and having a right old laugh), and we believe has been a force for good in our community – encouraging more women to try or return to the game, promoting community cohesion and raising lots of money and awareness for various charities! We’ve also made lots of good new mates from the other teams, most of whom are as crazy as us!

We have won the league *almost* every season so far, but the competition is getting stronger! So if you’d like to come and support us, check out the fixture dates on the BWFCL website and get yourselves up to Brunel Academy. All the league games are played on 2 adjacent pitches on the same day and it’s a fun, kiddie-friendly atmosphere – often with cake! And of course we all troop down the the Plough afterwards for a post-game pint/pop/bag of crisps.
