Wednesday saw the Festival come to the Banks's Stadium, Walsall, ahead of England's crucial Euro 2013 qualifier against Croatia.
More than 200 girls aged seven upwards from schools and clubs from across the region and girls just dropping in and playing for the first time, 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 FA WSL players Kerys Harrop, Rachel Unitt and Emily Westwood from Birmingham City.
Activities included interactive games and competitions, the ContiWarmUp programme, skills and drills, prizes and goodies, hair braiders, face painters, and digital stations to entertain the girls during breaks from playing. Participants also had the chance to pose with the FA WSL trophy.
Kerys Harrop, Rachel Unitt and Emily Westwood interacted with the kids and a Q & A was held to give the girls an insight into the life of a semi-professional female footballer. They signed autographs and had their photos taken with participants.
The initiative has already visited 20 venues throughout England in 2012 providing hundreds of girls aged 5-17 with an exciting, interactive football experience.
