Bournemouth welcomes England internationals - 10 Sep 2013 - Women's Football NewsEngland internationals Steph Houghton and Kelly Smith were welcomed by AFC Bournemouth Vice-Chairman Jeff Mostyn, Cherries legend Steve Fletcher, first team players Andrew Surman, Brett Pitman and Marc Pugh and Nicola Taylor, Paula Taylor and Gill Neil of Bournemouth Ladies. 
The England stars were visiting the Goldsands Stadium ahead of their much-awaited FIFA Women's World Cupô 2015 qualifier against Belarus, which will take place on Saturday 21st September (kick off 1pm).
During their visit, youngsters from Mudeford Junior School had the chance to meet the players and take part in a special coaching session. Pupils received top tips in a skills and drills session, received advice on how to get involved in football and had the chance to ask their burning questions about what it is like to play for England. They were also treated to an appearance by the AFC Bournemouth mascot 'Cherry Bear'.
Steph Houghton said: "It has been fantastic to come down to Bournemouth today and get such a great reception. We are really excited to be kicking off our World Cup campaign at the Goldsands Stadium. We have received great support so far and all the kids we have met today have been brilliant. It is a really important game for us and we look forward to putting on a really good show. We hope that as many football fans as possible will come down and cheer us on."
Vice-Chairman Jeff Mostyn added: "It has been great to have the England players here today. There has been huge excitement within the club and we are immensely proud to be hosting the game. We are confident that fans from across the south will come and join us for this prestigious event."
The Three Lions are aiming to make it to their third successive World Cup Finals. It is the first of two games to be played on the south coast in five days, as Portsmouth's Fratton Park is set to stage England's second World Cup qualifier, against Turkey, on Thursday 26th September (kick-off 7.05pm).
It is the first time that a women's international has come to Bournemouth and the players are hoping that sports fans across the south will come out with England flags waving and make sure it is a roaring success.
Prior to seeing the two teams in action, fans are invited to take part in FREE, fun football-based interactive games in association with Continental Tyres. Games include batak boards, a speed cage, a target shoot inflatable plus a new trailer that houses digital stations and the FA WSL trophy, Cyprus Cup and FA WSL Continental Cup. To add to the England party atmosphere, there will also be hair braiding and face painting, all of which will take place outside the stadium from 11am.
