Blackburn and City support recruitment drive
 Women's Football News 31 Jul 2008
Blackburn and City support recruitment drive - 31 Jul 2008 - Women's Football NewsThe Bolton and Bury Girls Football League, in association with Ladybridge F.C., is proud to be hosting a high profile pre-season friendly for Premier League club Blackburn Rovers against Manchester City on Saturday 9th August at Ladybridge FC, kick off 2pm with entry being free for everyone. 
The game itself will be tied into a drive by the Bolton and Bury League to increase the number of girls teams which play in its league in time for the 2009-10 season. The league runs with age groups ranging from Under-10 to Under-16, playing various formats of football including 7v7, 9v9 and 11v11.
The league is providing an open invite to all clubs, coaches and officials interested in being involved in providing girls football within their club to the day where help, advice and support will be available from Mike Nadal and Pete Wild from the Lancashire FA on all issues involved in starting up a new team.
Mike Nadal, Girls and Women's Football Development Officer for the Lancashire FA, said: "It is great to see our Senior girls and women's club in Blackburn Rovers assisting with the growth of grass roots girls football in conjunction with a local Girls League. We are hoping that lots of people will come and enjoy the day and it will inspire them to provide the opportunity for girls to play football in their own club in their local community."
The Bolton and Bury League and Lancashire FA will then host a meeting of all interested clubs at a later date to provide ongoing support around all the issues of supporting a new girls team or section. This will include advice on funding and the recruitment of players and volunteers
The day will commence at 11.45am where two coaching sessions will take place using the FA-recognised Blackburn Rovers Girls Centre of Excellence, the FA Tesco Skills Coaches Team and local players from clubs involved in the Bolton and Bury Girls League.
Pete Wild, Football Development Officer at the Lancashire FA, said: "It is a great opportunity for all existing girls clubs in and around the Bolton and Bury area to see girls coached at a high level and also for new clubs to come on board and support the ever expanding world of girls football in Lancashire. We will be supporting interested clubs through the process right through to the 2009-10 season to ensure we get as many girls playing football in the community."
Gemma Donnelly, who is Secretary for Blackburn Rovers and the FA Centre of Excellence Co-ordinator, said: "We are delighted to play a part in this great event and will be bringing along a strong squad of players to hopefully help raise the profile of the women's and girls' game in the area.
"Our participation stems from a presentation evening which was held at Ladybridge a couple of months ago, which was attended by one of our defenders, Nicki Harding (pictured), who handed out the awards. We were then invited back to take part in this fixture in return.
"We hope that by watching the game, the girls in attendance will be able to see football played at the highest level, which will provide them with a platform of what they can strive towards."
