Fair play at Island Girls festival!
 Women's Football News 26 May 2012
Island Girls FC's latest 4v4 football festival at Smallgains in Canvey Island attracted 18 teams for a day of activities across both the Under-8 and Under-10 age groups recently and the players accumulated 'Fair Play Points' from each of their five games to promote the positive elements of the sport. 
Points were awarded for flair, attitude, independence and respect in an effort to encourage coaches, players and their parents that games should not only concentrate on the final result. Island themselves entered two teams into both age groups - Stars and Stripes - and other participating clubs included Canvey Island, Chelmsford City, Great Danes and Thurrock.
The Fair Play prize for the Under-8s was presented to Thurrock, who stole the show with an impressive 47 points after three clubs awarded their bonus fair play card (worth 10 points) to them. The Under-10s was much closer, with both Canvey Island (Stripes) and Chelmsford City achieving an impressive 37 points. Southend Manor just edged it, however, with 38.
"Today's event was a really great day," reacted Emma Burden, Essex County FA Female Football Development Officer for Outer Essex. "Of course, the weather helped, but the club as a whole really came together and embraced this development initiative. It was a real advert for us to host these events in partnership with club facilities in the future.
"A massive thank you goes to Paul Lowther of Island Girls, all the committee and their families for their help to ensure all the girls had a positive experience. It was nice to see some new faces attending the event and for them to mingle with other club managers and arrange friendlies. Fingers crossed they will be ready to join league football next season."
