Young girls had a ball at a Doncaster gala encouraging female youngsters to take up football.
The event, hosted by Armthorpe Wolves at Southfield Primary School, was organised by Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA to help get girls into the beautiful game.
In partnership with Sheffield and Hallamshire Girls League and other local Junior Leagues, SHCFA are looking to run monthly festival events to help prepare players to join the U9 division for the 2016/17 season. The galas will be taking place on the last Saturday of every month from January to June, travelling around the county, working with partners and grassroots clubs to host the events.
Any girls aged seven or eight years old (Y2/3 at school) can come along to get involved.
Players don’t need to have any experience of football at all, and players can come along with a friend.
The galas include warm up, skills activities and small sided games, to give all the players a great experience within football without any commitment. Below is the link to for parents to pre-book. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/y23-u8-girls-football-gala-tickets-19798258123
