Staines roadshow leaves a mark! - 2 Apr 2012 - Women's Football NewsSaturday saw the FA Girls' Football Festival supported by Continental Tyres, Sport England and UEFA visit Staines City Centre, Memorial Gardens. 
Situated in beautiful surroundings next to the River Thames, girls took part in the festival accompanied by Women's Super League (WSL) players including World Cup competitor Claire Rafferty, Helen Bleazard, Sue Lappin and Helen Lander from Chelsea who signed autographs and had their photos taken with participants. The FA WSL mascot Berry was also in attendance to cheer on the girls and add to the atmosphere.
It is the first time that the FA has visited a city centre to encourage girls to get involved in the game. Girls aged seven upwards from Chelsea and girls just dropping in and playing for the first time, took part in the free training day led by FA coaches. Activities included interactive games and competitions, the ContiWarmUp programme, skills and drills with FA approved coaches and prizes and goodies for all.
Chelsea Ladies FC, who have recently moved grounds to Staines Town FC, are hoping that the festival will encourage more girls to take up football and come and support them in their first FA WSL home match against Doncaster Rovers Belles on Monday 9th April at 3pm.
Claire Rafferty said: "It is nice to see girls dropping in and taking part in today's festival. It is exciting to bring the event to a city centre and see girls taking part in football for the first time. It's all about having fun and learning new skills."
Tim Bailey, Communications Manager at Continental Tyres added: "It is great to be able to bring the FA Girls Football Festival to Staines and particularly to a city centre for the first time. We hope that today will have provided a taster to the game."
The next event is on Tuesday 3rd April at Boreham Wood FC from 1pm to 4pm.
