Girls and Womens Football in Rugby – PRESS RELEASE

The girls at Rugby Town Girls’ and Women’s Football Club show off their new kits with the new Club logo.

The relaunch of the logo coincides with the girls football moving to their new training ground at Butlin Road in Rugby, where the girls and women have been training since the start of the summer this year. The new logo is a simple reflection of female football being at the heart of everything Rugby Town Girls’ and Women’s Football Club do. The logo also reverts back to the Club’s original club logo with a modern edge added.

RTGWFC has a long-standing history of running football for females in Rugby and has been at the heart of female football in the town for nearly twenty-five years. The Club started to play a key role in forging the heritage of female football within our town in the early 1990s going on to become an FA registered club in 1996. It is independently run for the benefit of its members since then.

The Club has gone from strength-to-strength starting out in a local school to a club with over one hundred members for the upcoming season training at the stadium site just outside the Town Centre, one of the best non-league grounds in the country.
