The Girls Academy at Lurgan Town was established in 2016 at the same time as the Senior Ladies team. The aim of the Academy is to bring the girls from the Academy teams into the junior set up and ultimately the Ladies Team. The coaches encourage the girls to enjoy their football with no pressure and “not the win at all costs” mentality which is so widespread in youth football today. We are firm believers that when pressure is added development stops. We are there to develop footballers in a positive and fun environment.
The Girls Academy at Lurgan Town, runs on Thursday night at the Lurgan Town Arena, from 6pm to 7pm. To be eligible to play you must be have one of the following birth years: U9 (2010/2011/2012), U11 (2008/2009), U13 (2006/2007) U15 (2004/05).
