At GDFC we aim to remove as many barriers as possible to our members accessing football. A reminder that we have a kitty to provide all sorts of support for those who need it. For example, we currently support some of our members with equipment, kit, travel and social expenses.

Please get in touch with Gaia, Katy or Liz with any requests and we’ll work out how the club can offer support (informally & anonymously). One of us is usually at training but we're also on TeamApp or via email to

The lineup features LOL Word originals myself, Jodie Mitchell and Shelf and headliners Evelyn Mok and ROSIE JONES. Please join us for some rad, queer fun - we'd honestly LOVE to see you there:
