Women in Watford are being urged to get active again in a safe environment by joining a local Gaelic football team.

Following the easing of lockdown rules Glen Rovers Ladies, which forms part of Glen Rovers GAA Club, has issued a call for new players to join and enjoy socialising again with a new hobby.

Megan Gallagher, vice captain of the ladies’ team, said: "Gaelic football is one of the fastest growing female sports in Europe.

"It compliments skills from football, rugby, basketball and netball.

The season starts at the end of May and the club also has men's teams and a youth team, which are also based in Radlett Road.

The men’s teams train every Tuesday and Thursday from 7pm and the women train on Wednesday evenings at 7pm and Saturday mornings at 9am.

Glen Rovers Ladies Gaelic Football Club also raised £3,500 for Watford General Hospital during the pandemic.
