Beginners Festival a hit
 Women's Football News 15 Dec 2009
 
Beginners Festival a hit - 15 Dec 2009 - Women's Football NewsLondon FA and NACRO hosted their second Women's Beginner's tournament on Saturday 5th December at the Wandle Rec in Wandsworth. 
 
There were ten teams in total participating on the day, each entering teams of up to nine women. The women taking part came from varying backgrounds inclduing mothers, grandparents and students. It was a great demonstration of how much fun it can be being part of a team no matter what your age.

Women from the LFA beginner's session had the chance to enter a team and they all said that the event provided them with an opportunity to see how far they had come from not kicking a ball at all or not playing in years to participating in a tournament.
 
Women participating in the event said that, "It's great to have the opportunity to get together and play again against other teams, and put into practise what we work on each week."
 
Nicola, from the London FA Archbishop Sumner session, stated that "she really enjoys participating in the sessions and that it provides her with a chance to relax and keep fit."

Paul Davis from NACRO said: "These kinds of events are important to highlight the level of women wanting to take part in football. Today there has been an excellent show of sportsmanship and we are looking forward to the next event in 2010."
 
The final saw a head to head showdown with both Calloway teams getting through and it was a close final but the winning trophy went to Calloway Athletic B Team. Louisa Shaw was awarded the sportsmanship award on the day and Caz Pennifold from Calloway Athletic was awarded the player of the tournament.
 
Throughout the day there was a great level of professionalism and sportsmanship shown from all teams participating and we would like to thank the referee's for their sterling performances on the day.
