Barry Town United Ladies particularly as we are starting to see the work carried out over the last four years beginning to make an impact on the pitch. Our senior section is now just one tier below the ultimate goal of achieving Welsh Premier League status and our junior section is thriving with some fantastic talent coming through our ranks. The recent merger has seen a number of changes to our setup in recent months and we are hoping for an exciting end to 2016. Our junior teams are showing excellent progress and we will be continuing to evaluate our offer and look to develop our own official development centre that will be created for our more able and talented players, offering development fixtures with other clubs across the UK. Progression “Given the size of our club we run trials at the end of every season for our senior section which has a senior and development team in place. Following the trials players are selected for the two squads for the season. The Development team tends to cater more towards a youth side but our more talented players have also gone straight into our senior first team on occasions. We also offer our players that are in transition the opportunity to train with our senior ladies.” Community “Community links is the sole reason why we have been so successful in developing the club so quickly. We offer taster sessions, coaching programmes, school festivals and leagues in the local area to offer opportunities as well as a direct link to our club. We are also involved in charity fundraising for two local charities’ we support called ‘Believe’ and ‘2 Wish Upon a Star’. Lots of local league sides are in contact with us particularly where girls are involved in local mixed teams and want to come over into the female game. Our club has a mixed portfolio of men’s, Ladies, juniors and disability football making it one of the most complete football profiles in Wales.” BRT International Ltd is a logistics solutions company with a wealth of UK & European Multimodal & Bulk Liquid Transport experience.
