Jamie Gosling Football Academy is proud to announce a new scholarship program for female soccer players in the Cairns region.

The Thomas Baldwin JGFA Girls Scholarship Program offers four female footballers aged between 6-14 free elite coaching and mentoring at the region’s number one soccer academy.

JGFA is now calling for nominations from local football clubs and the football community to identify players, with the successful applicants attending the weekly sessions at Holloways Beach.

“We’re thrilled to be able to offer this opportunity in the Cairns region for female junior football players,” said Jamie.

“I’d like to say a huge thank you to Thomas Baldwin Boutique Real Estate for coming on board as the program sponsor, and helping to make it happen.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for four girls in the region to enhance their individual game.

“When I’m at Endeavour Park on a Saturday watching junior games, I always notice how many talented junior female players I see playing.

“It’s one of the reasons that since the Academy started three years ago, we’ve really strived to grow girls’ love for soccer, especially through our dedicated girls-only squad.

“We’re passionate about all things football and its possibilities, especially when it comes to helping to develop female football in Far North Queensland.”

JGFA also recently confirmed Leichhardt Football Club Premier Ladies captain-coach Natalie Fichera as the new coach of its girls program.

Thomas Baldwin Boutique Real Estate’s Carol Thomas said she was delighted to come on board as the program sponsor.

“It’s been an exciting year for female football with the Matildas playing in the Women’s World Cup, and I’m really looking forward to seeing JGFA work with young local female players to help further develop their game.”

Parents, guardians, coaches and community members are now encouraged to send in applications for interested children.
