Suzanne backing Tesco Bank Challenge - 16 Sep 2011 - Women's Football NewsScotland international Suzanne Grant has given the Tesco Bank Football Challenge her backing after seeing the programme in action. 
 
The challenge, which involves Primary 2 and 3 children across every local authority in Scotland, is designed to get kids participating in football, maintaining a healthier lifestyle along the way.
 
The Celtic striker said: "I think it's fantastic that children are being given the opportunity to get involved in football at such a young age. When I was young there were very few opportunities for girls to get involved in the game.
 
"To help women's football in this country to continue to grow and develop, it's important that young girls learn to love the game. I was at Hampden to help celebrate the end of the first year of the Tesco Bank Football Challenge, and the children had a great time.
 
"It's great news that the programme is continuing to provide young children with a fun way of getting involved in football."
 
We are told that more kids should play football, and that's exactly what the Tesco Bank Football Challenge achieved in its first season 2010-11. Tesco Bank and the Scottish FA set itself some tough targets - and every single one of them was achieved!
 
Nearly 20% more schools were involved than targeted originally (479), while the programme for nearly 6% more kids playing football than originally planned (19,061). here were also 12.1% more regional festivals than targeted (74).
 
The most impressive statistic was that over 1,000 teachers and volunteers participated in in-service training - an amazing 150% up on target!
