Record turnout at festival

Record turnout at festival - 30 Jun 2013 - Women's Football NewsThe FA Girls' Football Festival in association with Continental Tyres, visited Mostyn Rangers FC, Kidderminster, on Sunday 30 June. 
 
A record number of over 600 girls, competing in a 5-a-side competition run by Worcestershire FA, or just turning up with their families, took part in the free programme aimed at encouraging girls to get involved in the game. The event was organised through the support of Worcestershire FA and the FA Tesco Skills team.
 
The participants, aged from 5-17 years old, were accompanied by England international and Birmingham City player Karen Carney. She delighted the youngsters by taking part in the coaching sessions. She also signed autographs, took part in photography, and offered top tips and advice on how to get involved in football.
 
The England star is travelling to Sweden on Monday 1st July with the England Women's Euro 2013 squad and youngsters had the chance to ask their burning questions. A Q&A was held to give an insight into the life of a semi-professional female footballer and what it is like to play for England. There was also a FIFA Female Referee Ambassador present, Sarah Garratt, who discussed her experience and how she started her refereeing journey.
 
The format of the day was fun and active, combining football, lifestyle and music. The festival was led by FA approved coaches and activities included skills and drills, interactive games (target shots, speed cage, batak boards) and mini matches inside an inflatable pitch. Sarah Garatt also delivered practical mini whistler activities and girls had the chance to pose with the FA WSL, the Cyprus Cup and the Continental Cup trophies. In addition, the loveable FA WSL mascot Berry the bear was in attendance and there was hair braiding and face painting to add to the festival atmosphere.
