Swifts head coach, Steve Pearl, said: "We are getting a great uptake for our weekly sessions on Friday evenings and Saturday mornings but we know there is more talent to be unearthed.

"We will be fielding an all-girls team in a game at the beginning of March and there will also be matches for boys and mixed teams."

In addition, there is a definite first for Daventry.

The club has entered a Midlands-based women's league taking place over the next three months.

Steve added: "There are undoubtedly ladies slightly older than primary school age who have always wanted to play but didn't know where or how. We are going to bridge that gap by offering training sessions and the chance to play competitively".
