7) Just Play – Female only – Mondays


Monday Pay and Play mixed ability football session – WOMEN ONLY #JUSTPLAY
Eligibility: Open Session – The FA Just Play sessions are 100% fun football sessions designed for women that just want to play football.

AFC Leyton is a unique female only football club, that trains in Walthamstow (behind Sainsburys Low Hall). On Mondays we have an open training session for adult females. These sessions are mixed ability which means that absolute beginners are welcome. The ages range from 16 years of age to 60 years.

The session aims to help local women

  • try football for the first time
  • offer extra fitness sessions for those that used to play and want to get back into football
  • have moderate football skills and want some extra practice
  • meet new local people
  • get outdoors and get fit in the fresh air

Players are expected to dress for the weather, so thermals or tracksuits in the winter and shorts and tees in the summer. Shin pads are recommended on these sessions. They are on floodlit astro (no mud!) Bring water and smiles 🙂


AFC Leyton is extremely proud of the cultural diversity of our players, staff and coaching team, a diversity which reflects the area of London in which we are based. We believe girls’ and women’s football can inspire personal confidence in all girls and women; and that coming together to play with others from diverse backgrounds encourages openness, tolerance and a greater understanding.

We appreciate that girls and women come in all shapes, heights, sexualities, religions and skin colour, and want to ensure AFC Leyton is an environment where everyone is welcomed, where difference is a cause for inclusion and celebration, not division and exclusion.

We know racism, sexism and prejudice persist in all levels of football as it does in all levels of society. By making our position explicit as an anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-discriminatory club, we can start to make a difference, and we strive to actively challenge discrimination wherever it occurs.
