The Angels are the club's girls teams and Becky Knox, a qualified coach to FA Level 2 and Youth Module 2, as well as being a cup-winning MTFC ladies  player and sports coach by trade has joined MYFC to help the girls through from never having kicked a ball to becoming full members of the Angels teams.

Becky joins to work closely alongside John Whitehead, who not only coaches but is also the main organiser.

MYFC has grown enormously over the past few years, becoming extremely successful by encouraging and engaging Marlborough’s boys and girls to play football, and even achieved the prestigious award of Wiltshire’s Sports Club of the Year in 2014.

Currently there are about 200 MYFC players organised and overseen by a dedicated, voluntary committee.

The Angels are one area which sets MYFC apart from many other youth Football Clubs.  From the chair outwards, everyone involved in the club supports the Angels, who also enjoy FA backing and support from local sponsors, all of whom are keen to continue developing the profile of girls football in Marlborough and wider afield.

Stuart Slater, Chair of MYFC said of the Angels:  “Our goal is to sustain an environment where girls of all ages can nourish their love of the game, build friendships, and have some time invested into them and their abilities.  We therefore welcome new players from complete beginners to established and advanced ability”.

If the Angels sounds like the place for your daughter, sister, niece or friend come down to the Marlborough College Water Meadow pitch this coming Friday (24 June) between 6 and 7pm or again on 1 July.

There will be a final fun day from 10am to mid-day on Saturday 9 July also at the Marlborough College Water Meadows pitch.  "Please feel free to come along on any or all of these dates or send me an e-mail at  This email address is being protected from spambots.
