Harlow goes from strength to strength
 Women's Football News 22 Feb 2008
 
Harlow goes from strength to strength - 22 Feb 2008 - Women's Football NewsGirls football in Harlow continued its winning form in early February as Mark Hall School hosted the latest popular Girls-Only Fun Festival, with the female game continuing to develop at lightning speed across the County.
 
The festivals, staged by the Harlow Youth Action Group, who have been providing weekly sessions for girls since September 2005, are open to girls aged 7-13 and are led by an all-female team of qualified coaches. Up to 25 girls have been in attendance each week, with the fun festivals coming together every five weeks including teams invited from outside the programme.
 
Further success was enjoyed at the latest event which saw Tigers Girls under-10s, Writtle Minors under-10s and Dunmow Rhodes under-12s come along to play the three Harlow Youth Action Group Football For All (HYAGFFA) teams: Harlow Storm under-10s, Harlow Bluebirds under-12s and Harlow Wildcats under-12s. As always, the festival was a huge hit and all sixty children went home with a Certificate of Attendance.
 
The February date was an added incentive for the Harlow-based girls who were able to wear their brand new kit for the very first time thanks to a kind donation from one of the girls' parents, a real treat for the players who have only ever worn bibs in the past.
 
Meanwhile, staff on the programme have been working especially hard to try and assemble the participating girls into teams, ultimately aiming to enter them into a league. Local club Langley Colts have provided the girls with the opportunity to play for their club and have also enlisted a female volunteer to help once the new teams are created. So far, up to twenty girls have expressed an interest and the club hope to field two new sides for the 2008-09 season.
 
Essex County FA Programme Coach, Sharon Brownlie, commented: "This part of the festival was extra special for the girls involved in the programme as they got to feel like a proper team in their new strip. The donation of the kit, along with all of the hard work being carried out by Langley Colts and the Harlow Youth Action Group, is ensuring that girls' football in Harlow continues to grow and be successful."
 
Teams who would like to take part in the next Fun Festival being held on Saturday 22nd March between 10am-12noon can contact Sharon Brownlie on (01245) 393074 or e-Mail sharon.brownlie@essexfa.com. These are also the contact details to request further information on the weekly sessions offered.
