England goalkeeper to inspire youngsters through project - 11 Aug 2015 - Women's Football NewsEngland women's goalkeeping star Siobhan Chamberlain is set to inspire young people in Bedford at a Sportivate football project this month being run by Bedford Ladies and Girls Football Club, that is one of the key initiatives to create a sporting legacy from the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. 
Siobhan, who recently returned with a bronze medal from the Women's World Cup in Canada, is one of England's top goalkeepers and plays for Notts County Ladies Football Club in the Women's Super League.
Siobhan will be visiting the Sportivate girls football project in her capacity as a Sport England Sporting Champion. The session will take place at Westfield School, Chester Road on August 17th from 6.30pm-8pm thanks to Bedford Ladies Football Club and Team Beds and Luton Sports Partnership, who provide Sportivate funding in the area on behalf of Sport England.
Siobhan said: "I'm really looking forward to this exciting Sportivate project in Bedford. I cannot wait to help them get them into sport and share my experience of proudly representing England. Sportivate is a fantastic way of getting young people into sport and that is something I am really passionate about.
"I believe that as a Sport England Sporting Champion, I can inspire everyone in attendance to raise their aspirations of what they can achieve and motivate them to be the very best versions of themselves that they can be."
Sportivate is the £56 million National Lottery funded Olympic and Paralympic legacy initiative that gives 11 to 25-year-olds who aren't particularly sporty six to eight weeks' coaching in a new sport and then helps them find low costs ways to continue to play.
Jayne Molyneux, the Strategic Lead for Youth at Sport England, said: "It is great to see Siobhan helping to inspire young people taking part in Sportivate to carry on participating in a sport they may never have tried before.
"Our Sportivate programme is all about listening to young people and putting on taster sessions in a sport of their choice to help them make the step into community sport and set them on the path to creating a sporting habit for life."
Recent figures published in April 2014 have revealed that Sportivate has retained 357,789 young people and therefore exceeded its four year target a year early.
