The girls section started In2004, Tylers Green Middle School under 11 girls football team entered and won a cup competition and the girls wanted more. One in particular, whose dad manages a boys' team at Penn & Tylers Green FC, was very keen. However, the club did not have a girls' section. After some nagging, that dad and another football mad dad formed the club's first girls under 11 squad. Within months it grew to 14 girls with 3 FA qualified coaches; two dads and one mum.
They played a few friendlies and were entered into the Bucks Girls Football League as under 12's for the 2005-6 season. The word went out that P&TG FC now had a girls team and in no time an under 10 squad was formed. The highlight of the season came on the 31st August 2006 when both age groups entertained girls' teams from Chelsea FC for a series of friendly games. Chelsea brought so many supporters with them that there were more than 150 spectators!
In the 2006-7 season, the original girls (by now under 13's) moved up to the under 14 section of the Bucks Girls Football League. Now there were three squads spanning 6 school years. Girls' football in Penn was growing fast. Apart from playing against Chelsea, the girls could now boast of having played against teams from: Tottenham Hotspur, Colchester United, Swansea City, Rushden & Diamonds and of course Wycombe Wanderers.
The most notable achievement to date came in the 2007-8 season when the under 12's stormed to the league title. They were undefeated in the league with 14 wins and 2 draws. They conceded only 4 goals. They beat Wycombe Wanderers into second place and knocked them out of the cup. This was the first time Wycombe had not won the under 12 title since the Bucks Girls Football League was formed in 2003.
2008-9 was another strong season for the club across all age groups. The oldest group, the under 15's, including some of the girls from that Tylers Green Middle School cup winning side, went with their coaches on loan to Hazlemere's under 16's for the season finishing a close second in the league to Wycombe Wanderers. Those girls and coaches have returned to Penn as part of our first under 16's squad for the season ahead. There are now 4 squads from under 10's to under 16's across 8 school years.
The cornerstone of the success of the girls' section is the strength and depth of the football club as a whole. The girls' section now has 10 FA qualified coaches and managers many of whom are also involved with the boys' teams. There are now 4 female FA qualified coaches. In a relatively short space of time Penn & Tylers Green FC has become one of the most popular and one of the strongest clubs in the county for girls football in the same way the boys have been for many years.
As if that's not enough, we now have a ladies social team that trains every week and takes part in a friendly league.
