On Friday, Cumberland FA Girls Player Development Centre (PDC) hosted their first festival of the season, welcoming Westmorland FA PDC and Newcastle PDC.
The event saw over 130 girls at Under 11, Under 13 and Under 15 age groups playing in a friendly round-robin style format. The festivals form part of a 15-week player development coaching programme, where selected girls are invited along for additional training and games.
The day also welcomed the FA Women's Super League 2 Champions Steph Bannon and Gemma Wilson from Sunderland AFC Ladies, as guests of honour to meet the players, sign autographs and hand out goodies.
Steph said: "It was a fantastic day, there were a lot of talented players taking part and most importantly they all seemed to be enjoying their football. It was a real privilege to be invited to be part of the day."
The pair are brilliant role models for the girls and answered lots of questions about how they can make it as an elite female footballer. Jess Lawson, Football Development Officer added: "There was a great atmosphere down at Frenchfields on Friday with lots of football being played and smiles on all of the players faces.
"It was wonderful to welcome back Newcastle PDC for the 5th year in a row, as well as our neighbours Westmorland FA. The FA WSL players Steph and Gemma really added to the occasion too."
The PDC players now look forward to their last few weeks of training before the winter break and further festivals in February and April 2015.
