Hannah and Cally visit AITC centre
 Women's Football News 6 Mar 2014
 
England under-19 international Hannah Blundell and Brighton & Hove Albion defender Cally Beaumont promoted the upcoming World Cup qualifier v Montenegro at an Albion in the Community development centre this week. 
 
The pair visited the girls' development centre, which opened last summer, at Blatchington Mill School, Hove, on Tuesday night.
 
The centre is part of a wider girls football programme run by AITC aimed at increasing female participation in the game across Sussex, and runs weekly sessions for girls between the ages of 6 and 14, some of who progress to Brighton & Hove Albion's women's academy.
 
Cally and Hannah answered questions from the keen young footballers before taking part in a small-sided match.
 
Hannah believes the evening was a great success and was pleased to see so many young girls playing football. She said: "It's good to see so many young girl footballers nowadays compared to how it was when I started playing.
 
"I'm always happy to promote anything to do with women's football. At my age, I never had anyone down to coach us, so the event taking place tonight is brilliant.
 
"My advice to these girls would be to practice as much as you can. I'll admit I was a terrible footballer but practice as much as you can and you'll get better.
 
"It just shows how much women's football has grown to have the national team playing at a stadium like the Amex. Hopefully it will attract a large crowd to the match."
 
Cally also thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the session and is now looking forward to the big match against Montenegro on 5th April. "It was really fun and a great opportunity to promote women's football to the youngsters," she said. "There was so much talent on show and the players had some good skills.
 
"It's great for Brighton and women's football in general to have a fixture being held at the Amex. Everyone knows how spectacular the ground is and I'm looking forward to the game and will definitely go and watch the match.
 
"Obviously there's a lot of talent in the England squad and I want to see us do well."
 
Luke Tyler, the girls' participation officer responsible for running the session, believed having a footballing role model present was a real inspiration to the young footballers: "The buzz the visit created among the girls and the parents was fantastic. It is really important for young girls who play football to have role models to look up to, so to have had Hannah and Cally there talking about her experience of being a young female footballer will be a huge inspiration to all the girls that took part."
 
Tickets are still available for the England vs. Montenegro, FIFA Women's World Cup 2015 Qualifier, on Saturday 5th April at the American Express Community Stadium.
