New Kit for Camden Bells FC

At My Club, we’re proud of the clubs we support. This post is a part of our series showcasing some of the most inspiring and interesting stories from our community of grassroots sports clubs.

HOW CAMDEN BELLS FC STARTED

I officially kicked things off in November 2021 and since then Camden Bells FC has flourished into a fully established, inclusive football team. We wanted to create an active, safe space for us to feel as elevated; all while learning new skills without any pressure and judgement. Many of the team were strangers when they started and now, we are a close-knit group of friends made up of women, queer women, trans non-binary people and gender non-confirming folk.

LGBTQIA+ COMMUNITY

It’s a real community and it’s so uplifting to see everyone coming together each week. I believe every individual gets something out of the sessions – whether that’s blowing off steam after a stressful day at the office or leaving with their head held high because they’ve mastered a step-over.

CHALLENGES FACED BY LGBTQIA+ PLAYERS

As a cis-woman I can’t speak for the trans community about the challenges they face, but as an ally, I can tell you that the system is not built to support trans non-binary players; and it’s appalling, this is grassroots football. People simply want to play for pleasure, but the unnecessary regulations add ridiculous amounts of red tape which make it harder for trans non-binary people to play freely.

BOYCOTTING SUPER5LEAGUE

Sadly, early this year, Camden Bells had to question Super 5 Leagues commitment to inclusion when they challenged the eligibility of one of their players. The league promotes itself as an environment “where women and non-binary people of all levels are welcome”. In a statement issued on Instagram, Camden Bells said a Super 5 official told the team that due to concerns for the welfare of any future opponents, the player – who identifies as trans non-binary – should not be allowed to play in a “women’s league”.

CAMDEN BELLS SAID

“We were appalled by this conversation as this league claims to be an inclusive space – with ‘LGBTQIA+ & non-binary friendly’ plastered across their marketing materials.” Thankfully, they have now found a new league to join, ‘Clubs United’. It is an inclusive league for women, queer women, trans people, non-binary and gender non-confirming individuals.
