Liverpool and Everton get in festival spirit!
 Women's Football News 8 Apr 2012
 
Liverpool and Everton get in festival spirit! - 8 Apr 2012 - Women's Football NewsThursday saw The FA Girls' Football Festival supported by Continental Tyres, Sport England and UEFA visit Liverpool One Shopping Centre, Chavasse Park. 
 
In the heart of Liverpool city centre, more than 120 girls aged seven upwards, just dropping in and playing for the first time and from clubs from across the region, took part in the free programme led by FA coaches and aimed at encouraging girls to get involved in the game.
 
They were accompanied by International and FA Women's Super League (FA WSL) players, including Jill Scott and Natasha Dowie from Everton and Aroon Clansey and Cheryl Foster from Liverpool.
 
The stars of the league made an appearance ahead of the launch of the second season of The FA WSL on Easter Sunday 8th April, where Liverpool play Bristol Academy (2.00pm) and Everton take on Arsenal (1.30pm) - Champions of The FA WSL 2011 season - in their first away match.
 
Activities included skills and drills, matches inside an inflatable pitch, interactive games (speed cage, batak board) and competitions, prizes and goodies for all. Participants also had the chance to pose with the WSL trophy. The FA WSL mascot Berry was also in attendance to cheer on the girls and add to the atmosphere.
 
Liverpool and Everton Ladies coached, played and interacted with the kids, signed autographs and had their photos taken with participants. Liverpool invited all the girls and their families to join them on Sunday morning for a training session on their pitch from 10.30am-12pm before their first FA WSL game at 2pm. Everton were also offering free tickets for their game against Birmingham City on April 22nd.
 
Nicky O'Donnell, Women and Girls Development Officer for Liverpool County FA said: "The FA Girls' Football Festival is great for the promotion of girls football in Merseyside. It has given the girls already involved in football a chance to meet the FA WSL players. Lots of girls were given the opportunity to play for the first time and to join local grass roots clubs."
 
The next event is on Tuesday 24th April in Doncaster. For more information please visit: www.TheFA.com/girlsfootball
