Arsenal midfielder Kim Little has launched a new football project at a Hertfordshire school.
The Scotland international and Team GB Olympic star answered pupils' questions at Samuel Ryder School, St Albans, ahead of the start of a new FA Vauxhall programme called Football Mash Up.
At a special assembly, pupils aged 14 to 17 were invited to take part in a ten-week Futsal programme which will be held at the school's indoor hall and led by the FA's Regional Youth Development Officer, Jackie Bushell.
The idea of Football Mash Up is to appeal to youngsters who may have dropped out of the game and then help them to join a local club after the programme ends - whether that is as a player or volunteer. The school has established a link with St Albans City Youth.
Louisa Suff, Football Development Officer (Youth) for Hertfordshire FA, said: "The Football Mash Up programme at Samuel Ryder School will be a really exciting one."Not only will the programme help youngsters to enjoy the game again, it will also give them the chance to experience Futsal where the emphasis really is on skill and technique.
"It was great to meet all the pupils and I'd like to thank Kim Little for helping up launch the project - and doing so well in answering some very tricky questions!"
The Football Mash Up sessions, which cost £1 per player, start on February 1 at Samual Ryder School, Drakes Drive, St Albans, AL1 5AR. The girls session, for those aged 14 to 17, takes place between 3.30pm and 4.30pm.
