National Girls football week
National girls football week this year runs from 5-11 October and was developed from the success of previous Women’s Football Weeks which began in Further Education in 2012, and spread to Higher Education in 2014. The week is delivered in partnership with Independent Schools FA, English Schools FA, Association of Colleges Sport and British Universities and Colleges Sport. This year the programme was extended to include primary and secondary schools. As a result we decide to hold our very own girls football day on Friday 9th October for all the girls in key stage 2 and what a success the day was, some of the girls approached the sessions saying they couldn’t play football or were rubbish at it! It’s fair to say that by the end of the session the girls couldn’t stop talking about how much fun they’d had and how much they’d learnt about football, we even had a number of girls asking for more football at Grange Park, which is a fantastic result to what was a lovely day for all involved.
