In total over 100 girls took part in the days event and received the chance to put into practice skills picked up in club training sessions.
Rob Bridges, Wiltshire County Women's and Girls League Fixture Secretary, commented: "There was a great attendance again at the festival last weekend and it was great to see over 100 girls playing in a non pressurised environment which enabled them to show off their skills to on looking parents and coaches. Another key success to the festival was that current U16 players from the respective clubs were on hand to referee the matches which helped to ensure that the event was successful and that all the players left with smiles on their faces.
"The league would like to thank Melksham Town FC, FC Chippenham Youth, Frome Youth, Warminster Highbury Youth, Warminster Sky Blues and Marlborough Angels for attending the festival as well as Ellie Burgess, Mia Regler, Tyler Webb, Anna Shepherd and Chantelle Church for officiating throughout the festival."
