Maghull Football Club welcomed three new girls' teams to the club last week - boosting its number of total active players to more than 250.

The club, which is based just off Hall Lane hosted a ladies' evening on Thursday to welcome the new teams to the ranks.

Maghull FC now boasts new under-10s, under-13s and under-15s girls teams.

The new teams join 18 existing youth teams, together with the two senior teams.

To mark the addition of the three teams, Maghull FC had a ladies' night where they were welcomed to the club and enjoyed a barbecue afterwards.

Maghull Town Council Labour Councillor and Maghull FC Committee member, Dave Jones, said he was delighted to welcome the new teams to the club.

Speaking after the ladies' evening, Cllr Jones said: "The standard of football and the behaviour was exemplary. The girls would like to thank the committee at Maghull FC for the invitation.

"On the night itself, we had 50 players, plus their parents. That means we have in excess of 250 people now playing football with Maghull FC.

"We have now got to be one of the biggest football clubs now in the North West."

Cllr Jones said Maghull FC is an important part of the community of Maghull.

He said: "Maghull Football Club is an important part of the Maghull community. The club itself grown and developed some excellent facilities.

"But the key is being a part of this community. We have 250 people actively playing football here. That's 250 people, young and older, from this area enjoying our fantastic facilities and taking part in a community club. We are going from strength to strength.

"Special thanks needs to go to the club's director of football John McInnes who continues to build on the success of the club.

"But we do need more volunteers and people to support the senior team on Saturdays. The more people who support us, the better for the club and the community."
