Jordan Butler told the News: “There’s always opportunities, now more than ever. There are always soccer schools in half terms for younger kids, and things like Leagues Ahead going on too.

“It’s a great opportunity or women to socialise, have fun, and do something that they all enjoy.”

Hannah Sheath, a Miss Kicks player, added: “It’s really inclusive, and take people of any level.

“They’ll take absolute beginners, or people who’ve played for a while and then got injured. I felt confident about coming along to the training session.”

The league are looking for teams to take part in a charity 5-a-side tournament on September 25 at the Lions Centre in Bermondsey.
