On a wet Saturday morning in April, London FA ran the second Festival of a series of three in Bromley, at the Bishop Justus School on their fantastic astro turf facility.
The rain did not dampen the spirits of the girls who came along; with over 100 girls in attendance on the day, it was a fantastic show of spirit with the players taking part in matches throughout the morning.
Working in partnership with local Community Charter Standard Club, Petts Wood JFC, the festival was about encouraging school teams and club teams to come together to provide exit routes for girls to get into club football and also for the girls to gain more experience playing in matches in a fun and friendly environment.
With the emphasis on participation and the girls having fun, no scores were kept on the day. Instead Awards were presented for 'Most Sporting Team' and 'Player of the Festival'. Winners of the 'Most Sporting Team' for the Under-11s were Highfield Junior School, and for the Under-13s Alleyns School.
Emma Barnes, Women's & Girls FDO, London FA says: "It has been a great turnout for this festival and it is fantastic to see so many young girls taking part. We hope that festivals like this will encourage girls to get involved in football out of the school environment as they can see what is on offer to them within these Charter Standard Clubs."
The next of these festivals will be taking place on Saturday 19th May at the London Marathon Playing Fields in Greenwich. There is still time to enter teams for this festival. The format for this festival is mini soccer, 7v7 and they will run from 10am-12noon. For further info please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
