Ryman League side Carshalton Athletic are helping to promote women's football in Surrey by hosting a Ladies Day later this month when Concord Rangers travel to take on the Robins.
The former Surrey Senior Cup winner's home ground at Colston Avenue will stage the event on February 18th, where women of all ages will be encouraged to take an active part in playing and supporting local football.
Ladies and girls will gain free entry to the game and receive a free club bobble hat, while FA representatives and managers and players from Carshalton Ladies will be on hand to provide more information on how girls can get involved. There will also be some surprises and star attractions on the day which will be announced nearer the time.
Carshalton Athletic have large female set-up at the club, with five girls teams, one ladies team and many young girls taking part in weekly soccer schools.
"Carshalton and (owner and manager) Paul Dipre have been so supportive in helping us establish a Ladies side here since the summer," said Ladies manager Jefferson Curtis. "The aim of the event is to highlight and celebrate women in our game, from players and club staff through to the mums that drive their children to training each week."
Meanwhile Dipre himself added: "Ladies football is a priority at Carshalton. We have made huge investments in both teams and facilities so that we may offer ladies the same benefits as their male counterparts."
Carshalton are also planning to start a Girls Football Academy in September 2012, which will run in partnership with Stanley Park High School.
The Academy will be headed up by ex-professional and experienced non-league manager Ian Hazel and will allow promising female footballers between the ages of 16 and 18 to continue their studies while pursuing their sporting aspirations.
"Our doors will be open to anyone interested in joining," said Hazel. "We'll be housed in a state of the art building with facilities and equipment that meet the demands of both learning and football in the 21st century."
