Football fun at Clacton!
 Women's Football News 19 Mar 2014
 
Around 120 girls aged between seven and eleven, from eight primary schools, enjoyed an afternoon of football fun at Clacton Leisure Centre on Tuesday 11th March as they took part in the Essex County FA's Tendring Central Venue Festival. 
 
The object of the event was to provide the girls with a fun first experience of football and promote pathways towards female grassroots clubs. There were no winners or losers in the competition, which constituted a mixture of small-sided matches where no scores were kept. Inbetween fixtures, the spare pitches were set up for alternative activities led by teachers and an FA Level Two coach in a circuit-like layout to keep the players occupied.
 
"Female Football Month is coming up in April, so this was an excellent opportunity to showcase the enthusiasm for girls' football in Tendring," said Football Development Officer Emma Willis, who organised the day's events. "Clacton Leisure Centre was selected because it's a central location with good facilities for both the children and the spectators, so we're grateful for the support of Clacton County High School for helping to arrange this for us.
 
"I'd like to thank the Young Leaders from the school who refereed the games, the FA Tesco Skills Coaches who were present and Andrew Swindin from Clacton County High who let us use the facility. If there are any other girls in Tendring who'd like to try football then get in touch so we can let you know where to start."
 
Central Venue Festivals are set up at a location where participating teams don't have to travel huge distances to play. All the fixtures take place in one visit and they are extensively used by the Essex County FA as a vehicle to increase participation.
