Goals for Girls success

Goals for Girls success - 20 Nov 2012 - Women's Football NewsOn Saturday 10th November at the Bishop Justus School in Bromley, one of five Goals for Girls football festivals scheduled in for the 2012-2013 season took place. 
In partnership with local Charter Standard clubs and Local Authorities the festivals will run for U9, U11 and U13 girls. Due to the success of the three festivals that were run last season, it was felt that there was a demand to run a similar series of festivals again. The festivals are for any organisation to enter such as schools, clubs and even individuals who may be looking to find a team.
For this season, the U9's will run in a 4v4 format, which allows groups of friends to enter a team, or any new team or school team who may only have the numbers for 4v4. The U11 & U13 age groups will run as 7v7 festivals.
With over 13 teams in attendance, around 130 girls in total, the morning was a great example of how girls can be brought together to get plenty of match time in a fun and relaxed environment without needing to keep scores and having a winner. Petts Wood Girls JFC were the local Charter Standard Club involved in this festival and were able to enter five of their teams into the festival which included two new age groups which they have established for this season. We were also pleased to welcome a couple of school teams and two other new teams again for this season, Wandsworth based Broomwood FC and Southwark based Dulwich Village FC, both of these teams have evolved from promotion in schools and word of mouth along with the hard work of the volunteers within the clubs themselves.
We were very lucky to have Chelsea Ladies star Claire Rafferty in attendance, who is also a full England international and was involved in the GB Olympic squad in the summer. This was a fantastic chance for the girls to meet Claire and ask her about her experiences, and for them to get photos and autographs from her.
Emma Barnes, Women's & Girls Football Development Officer says ''It was a fantastic morning of football for all of these girls, and it was great that Claire was able to come along to see what was going on. Being a local girl and having started her playing career not too far away, the girls were able to see what is achievable if they want progress in the game.''
The next Goals for Girls Festival will be taking place on 23rd March 2013 in partnership with Dalmain Athletic Girls FC, at Downham Playing Fields, Lewisham, 10am - 12noon. There will be U9, U11 & U13 games taking place. For more information or to register please contact: emma.barnes@londonfa.com or (07921) 050375.
