Over 60 girls were invited to play on the stadium pitch at Bromley FC on Sunday for a free #LetGirlsPlay football taster event.
The session, run by the Bromley FC Community Sports Trust was part of a range of activities held throughout the day which coincided with the Bromley Women’s FA Cup game against Millwall Lionesses.
Girls aged 4 to 16 were invited from across the borough to come and try football for the first time. With over 60 participants on the stadium pitch, our Community Coaches, and Women’s Team Coach, Dave Pointing were on hand to introduce the basics of football.
Women and Girls’ Development Officer, Andrea Ellis said, ‘In the Summer we launched our Women and Girls’ strategy. One of our objectives is to, ‘Provide football for all’. This session is a fantastic example of how we can create a safe and welcoming environment for girls of all ages to come and play. Holding events like this proves there is an appetite for girls’ football, and there is no better place than here at Bromley FC with our amazing facilities for them to start playing.’
The Trust runs a number of community sessions for women and girls, including FA programmes, Wildcats and SQUAD Girls as well as women’ recreational football for both Under and Over 30s.
