Free football festival at Forest Road!
 Women's Football News 9 May 2009
Metropolitan Essex could be on the verge of witnessing the creation of a new schools 'Soccability' Futsal league following the success of a recent event staged by the Essex County Football Association for girls aged 11-16 at the Powerleague venue in Forest Road, Hainault.
School years 7-11 were involved in a Soccability Football Festival which included players from schools in Havering, Newham, Barking & Dagenham, Redbridge and Waltham Forest. Five-a-side matches took place on the artificial pitches at Powerleague, as well as fun coaching sessions led by the FA Tesco Skills Coaches. Every child received a medal and a certificate as a reward for their efforts.
"All disability schools in the Metropolitan Boroughs were invited to bring along a team to take part for free, and it didn't matter if they only had a few girls with them as we were easily able to be put them into teams," explained Sharon Brownlie, Girls' & Womens' Football Development Officer for Essex's London Boroughs. "It was vital to stage this event as there is very little provision for girls' disability football in the area, and none at all in certain places, so it is very important to offer females the opportunity to come out and play other females."
The County Office in Chelmsford, administrative centre for the Essex County Football Association, is proud to be actively working in line with a detailed Equality Statement, and Sharon now believes their work in female football and 'Soccability' could bear fruit in the form of an innovative, more regular competition: "I think there were about 30 girls aged 11 to 16 taking part. We now hope to build on that success and turn this into a once-a-term schools league to be held at Powerleague."
