England internationals Rachel Yankey and Lianne Sanderson joined local female footballers in London where they hosted an exclusive, free coaching session for local under-16 girls at Whittington Park to mark the launch of the FA Tesco Girls' Football Week.
Local girls under the age of 5 to 16 were invited to come along to Whittington Park where they took part in a uniquely designed free football taster session. Specially trained FA coaches were on hand to give the girls the very best coaching tips, whilst they were able to test their skills in a number of inflatable football games such as target practice and speed camera shooting which were set up on the day. Representatives from the London County FA were also on hand to provide girls with more details on local teams and how to get involved in their local area.
Morag Taylor, Marketing Manager for Women's Football at The Football Association, commented: "Girls football is the number one female participation sport in England but we're keen for even more girls to get involved and enjoy the game over the coming seasons. The FA Tesco Girls' Football Week is all about introducing young girls of all abilities to the game, helping them to improve their skills and have fun with their friends."
Rachel Yankey added: "It's always good to see young girls participating in the game as after all they are the next generation of the England women's team. Girls' Football Week provides girls who may not have thought about playing football before with a fantastic opportunity to have a fun introduction to the sport and provide them with the means of hopefully continuing their development in the game for years to come."
