As part of the FA and Tesco's Girls Football Week, St Agnes AFC invited 80 girls from local primary schools to take part in a football fun day at Enys Parc on Thursday 25th June.
Following on from the success of a similar event last season, eight teams of girls aged 8-11 years attended from different primary schools including St Agnes School, Perranporth School, Goonhavern, Threemilestone, St Johns and St Kea. The girls spent the day learning skills, playing matches and doing fitness.
Qualified coaches from St Agnes AFC were ably assisted in the deliverance of the day by sports students Chantelle Goldsworthy, Amber Johnson, Grace Rudlin and Emily Hardaker from Truro College, who spent the day helping as part of their Community Sports Leader Award.
Fresh fruit, juice, squash, biscuits and other refreshments for the girls all day was supplied in boundless quantities thanks to sponsorship by local Tesco stores. Referees for the day included Richard Lander School Pupil Ben Pitts, a St Agnes AFC club player who has just qualified as a young referee. Ben was allowed the day out of school to be mentored in his first experience of refereeing and did a cracking job!
Medals, trophies and certificates for the day were sponsored by St Agnes business Martyn Kimmins Print with Club President Ian Doble presenting the top overall team of the day, Goonhavern School, with medals and runners-up awards to St Agnes who came a close second. A Special Award for the day was presented to Teah from St Agnes School who received the most votes from coaches, teachers and officials on the day for overall perfermance and contribution.
The girls were also invited to join in an England Flag decorating competition with the flags destined to travel with the England ladies team to wish them luck and hang in their hotel as they compete in the European Championships. The best decorated flag trophy was awarded to Kea CP School.
Class Teacher Karen Morgan from St Agnes School commented, "The girls have had an absolutely lovely day thank you so much!"
Kevin Barnes, football coach from Threemilestone School said: "This has been brilliant, the boys often get the opportunity to take part in football events like this but the girls rarely get to experience the team comradery and bonding. Well done to St Agnes AFC on planning such a well organized event!"
St Agnes AFC Chairman Mandy Kimmins added: "What a great success today has been, all of the school should be really proud of their girls' commitment, behaviour and contribution. It has been a great combination of St Agnes AFC, Truro College, Richard Lander School and our local Primary Schools all coming together to deliver a fun filled, fitness and football day for 80 girls. We hope that St Agnes AFC will be able to field a new under-12 Girls side next season as a result of today and that other girls who have taken part will go on to continue playing football."
