She was accompanied by Megan Harris and Kirsty Linnett, who currently plays for England Under-23s, and represented England at Under-15 and Under-17 level.
 
All participants had the chance to test their reactions as well as the speed of their shot, in a number of interactive games, brought by Continental Tyres, including Batak Boards and a Speed Cage. Charlotte Lade, one of the world's leading professional football freestylers was also on hand to wow the crowds with her amazing football tricks and skills.
 
Fans were also given the chance to pose with the UEFA European Women's Under-17 Championship trophy, whilst Leicester City's Filbert Fox and FA Women's Super League mascot Berry the Bear were also in attendance and went head-to-head in a dance off.
 
To add to the enhanced fan experience, there were prizes and giveaways from Lego Friends and Continental Tyres, tournament sponsors, and music, hair braiding and face painting. Staff from Leicestershire and Rutland County FA were on hand to provide information on local football opportunities.

All schools and youth clubs have been offered FREE tickets by The FA to enable youngsters in the local area to watch the best young female footballers in Europe and to come out to cheer on England.
