Ladybridge enjoy Festival success
 Women's Football News 29 Jun 2015
Ladybridge Football Club enjoyed a successful weekend at St John's Park, as several teams descended upon the club in order to enjoy their football in the glorious British sunshine. 
The football club were lucky enough to have over 250 young and senior players involved in playing football over the weekend on their fantastic 3G surface with the main emphasis on enjoyment and mass participation for all.
On Saturday the club's younger kids played in the morning, with our senior team later playing in an exciting match against North Walkden in the afternoon, where Bridge ran out comfortable winners.
On Sunday the older kids played and the day was rounded off with over 50 ladies taking part in women's football which was great to see, especially after the Lionesses' recent success in the Women's World Cup in Canada.
Ladies team manager, Darren Butler, summarised Sunday's events: "As part of the Ladybridge FC football Fun Festival there was a an hour dedicated to ladies football which was held on Sunday afternoon, starting at 4.30pm. We say a dedicated hour, however due to the unprecedented popularity and enthusiasm shown by all teams, it lasted till almost 7.00pm.
"In all seven clubs took part with nine teams taking to the field with around 60 players. There was quite a disparity in the league tier status of the teams from the newly formed Eccleston outfit, St Jospehs Blackburn in Lancashire Ladies League Division 2, Ladybridge themselves who will play in Division 1, Little Lever Ladies who competed last year in the Greater Manchester Ladies Division 2, CMB Ladies from North West Region Division 1 North, Bolton Wanderers Ladies North West Region Premier, right up to top tier team of Chorley Ladies in the FA Women's Premier League Northern Division One.
"However despite the presumable gulf in quality all teams acquitted themselves brilliantly over ten minute games against each of the teams in attendance. It was not a tournament as such and no results were recorded, the main emphasis for on enjoyment and trying to branch the sport out to beginners who may have been inspired by England's recent success against Canada.
"Despite Chorley being the team everyone wanted to measure up against, the games were all played in the right spirit but still very competitive and Chorley are to be congratulated for adding some of their players to some of the opposition to make numbers up when required to do so.
"Local team CMB came out of the games without conceding a goal so were well pleased with their efforts. Added to that the lower ranking teams saw it is an opportunity to test themselves as well as learning from some of the more experienced players.
"A lovely sunny day and everyone was well out on their feet by the end so a good fitness session alongside some quality skilful football enjoyed by all the supporters and family members also in attendance."
Ladybridge FC would like to give a huge thank you to everyone who worked tirelessly in order to organise such a great event, the clubs for coming along, the managers for working hard to organise their teams for the day and finally a big thank you goes out to Barclays, who sponsored the event. All proceeds raised will go straight towards the club's floodlights fund.
