Shoeburyness High School recently played host to a Girls 4 v 4 Festival to promote opportunities for young female players in the South East of the County, with Essex County Girls League Committee Member Jacki Meaney the driving force behind the nine team event.
The Festival, linked with the School Sports Partnership, saw local clubs take part in five competitive games and get the opportunity to participate in the Speed-Agility-Quickness (SAQ) Station run by new ECFA Community Coach Lucy Faraday.
Club involvement came from Leigh Ramblers, Assandun Vikings, Ashingdon and Hawkwell Athletic and, for some players, it was one of their first competitive games. Moving forward, the clubs are aiming to enter the Essex County Girls League's new Mini-Soccer Seven-a-Side Division for Under-10s.
Girls & Women's Development Officer for the Essex County FA, Emma Wake, was pleased with how the event was staged, saying: "The morning went really well, with the girls getting maximum touches on the ball and really working on their skills. Each girl was rewarded at the end of the Festival with a Goody Bag and a Certificate. It was great for all the clubs to come together and decide how best to move forward. Hopefully, in the future, the South East will have their very own league, who knows!"
