The surge of interest in women’s football following the Lionesses’ historic Euro win has created an unexpected problem for one Evesham club.

England beat Germany 2-1 in the final of the European Championship on Sunday, sparking a fresh interest in the sport.

However, for Evesham United, this has led to a challenge they couldn’t have anticipated.

Karen Robinson, in charge of the ladies and girls development sides at the club, said: “Since the Euros started and England have won, we have had a huge amount of interest and more girls coming to train and try it out. 

“The only problem now is finding more coaches for all the teams! It’s a good problem to have!”

Evesham United aren't the only ones to have been inspired by the Lionesses, READ MORE: 

Evesham United has always welcomed girls but until around four years ago, they had to play alongside the boys.

Now, however, the club has four girls-only teams following a big recruitment push at a local school, when United offered free taster sessions.

Evesham is also looking to launch a ladies' team starting next season (2023/24) and has just released an advert as it bids to build its new squad.

Thanks to the Lionesses, it’s unlikely they will struggle to find new players.

“I have already had six or seven emails enquiring about ladies' football! This is amazing,” Karen added.

“Our current players are absolutely buzzing and feel very proud to be girls in football.

“It gives them that inspiration and desire to do well and want to progress, as anything can happen if they put their mind to it!"

She continued: “This is the best thing that could have happened for women’s football, it shows that with passion and hard work it doesn’t matter what gender you are, you can achieve anything.

“Football is a team game no matter if it’s men’s or women’s.

“It’s an amazing inspiration for all of us, including coaches.”
