Women's Football News
Women and girls from the Second City - including an England International - enjoyed a taste of the fun that football can offer at a special event organised by Birmingham County FA in conjunction with Kick if Out.
More than 50 females were given the chance to learn new skills in an all-female environment and take part in fun games during three sessions at Bordesley Green Girls School on Monday 27th October.
The Girls and Women's Football Celebration Day was part of Birmingham County FA's work during Kick it Out's "Weeks of Action", celebrating diversity and inclusion within a community setting.
Its aim was to inspire those who have not played football before. Karen Carney was on hand to help achieve this by answering questions on how the Birmingham-born 21-year-old had progressed from a kickabout with her friends to playing for Arsenal and England.
She signed autographs and gave out goodies kindly provided by The FA and fairgame Magazine.
"It was wonderful that everyone got to meet Karen," said BCFA Football Development Officer and event organiser, Heather Cowan. "The fact she has made such a success of her football career but comes from just down the road is a real inspiration!
"We were delighted to welcome so many girls and women to the Celebration Day and are pleased we could provide an environment where they felt they could really get stuck in and enjoy themselves!
"Everyone was provided with details of how they can carry on enjoying football on a regular basis, so who knows? We might have inspired the Karen Carneys of the future!"
