Last summer, we visited Market Rasen Town Football Club and Barrowby Junior Football Club to see what the impact of the Weetabix Wildcats programme has had on their clubs and how the 2022 Euros success of the Lionesses has influenced participation at their offerings.

Market Rasen Town Football Club Ladies and Barrowby Football Club have both seen success from the programme and the opportunities it’s given girls in their areas. They've started out offering Weetabix Wildcat sessions at their clubs for girls to have the opportunity to play, now growing to the point where Market Rasen will be entering a team into the Lincolnshire Women & Girls League next season and Barrowby JFC entering two teams of their own. 

We visited both clubs to see the impact of the programme for ourselves, and find out how the success of the Lionesses has influenced their growth in participation over the last 12 months.
