Wales's first female American football team aims to go to the next level

Wales's first female American football team are looking to take their game to the next level.

The Cardiff Valkyries became the first BAFA (British American Football Association) registered female american football team in Wales back in February.

Since then they have gone from strength to strength with more and more women taking an interest.

Head coach Simon Browning has been keen to show that american football "is one of those team sports that is completely inclusive."

The Valkyries have their sights set on playing a full contact game, but the pads and helmets that have made the sport so well known don't come cheap.

They're looking to raise money to purchase the kit that will allow them to compete in the full game, with the ultimate aim of encouraging more women into the sport.
