Peterborough gets in Festival spirit!

Peterborough gets in Festival spirit! - 8 Sep 2013 - Women's Football NewsThe FA Girls' Football Festival in association with Continental Tyres, visited The Grange, Peterborough, on Saturday 7th September. 
 
Around 300 girls, competing in mini matches, or just turning up with their families, took part in the free programme aimed at encouraging girls to get involved in the game. The programme, travelling around England for the second year, is a joint initiative by the FA and Continental Tyres and was organised through the support of Northamptonshire FA and Huntingdonshire FA.
 
The participants, aged from 5-17 years old, were accompanied by England Internationals and Arsenal players Ellen White and Jordan Nobbs. They delighted the youngsters by taking part in coaching sessions. They also signed autographs, took part in photography, and offered top tips and advice on how to get involved in football.
 
Youngsters had the chance to ask their burning questions to the two England stars. A Q&A was held to give an insight into the life of a FA WSL player and what it is like to play for England. There was also two FA Female Referee Ambassadors present, Sarah Garratt and Lucy May, who discussed their experience and how they started their 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 Garratt and Lucy May also delivered practical mini whistler activities and girls had the chance to pose with the FA WSL trophy, the Cyprus Cup and the Continental Cup. 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.
 
Ellen White said: "This is fantastic to see so many girls enjoying themselves at playing football. As an England player I take my role model very seriously and I absolutely love coming down to FA Girls' Football Festivals. Hopefully we'll get some future FA WSL stars from these festivals."
 
Jordan Nobbs added: "The initiative is very encouraging for the girls and they are all really enjoying. This gives them confidence to play against other teams and it is really important for kids to have a go at playing football in a fun environment to encourage participation."
