WAKEFIELD FC Ladies are looking for the support of the local community to help win a grant that would help the club establish a junior section.

The club, one of the leading ladies football teams in Yorkshire, has been successful in being selected for a NatWest Community Force Grant.

They’re keen to set up a junior section, which would be the first junior female football set-up in the district, for the start of the 2012-13 season and success in winning the grant would help fund the start of their new venture.

The last round of selection is decided by the public through a voting system, which started on Monday.

Wakefield are looking to work with local schools over the coming months to help establish a group of girls keen to compete in an under-10’s league at the start of next season.

And the club will use potential grant money to help fund the purchase of new equipment, to educate young female football coaches and to host a schools football festival.
