Wayne Rooney's Street Striker returns!
 Women's Football News 5 Nov 2009
Wayne Rooney's Street Striker returns! - 5 Nov 2009 - Women's Football NewsThe second series of 'Coke Zero' Presents: Wayne Rooney's Street Striker returns to our screens this week on Sunday 8th November, across Sky1 HD and Sky 1, but this year there's a record number of female participants competing for one of the ultimate prizes in the game - the chance to be crowned the nation's most skilful street footballer. 
A total of seven girls help to make up the twenty four lucky youngsters, aged between 14-18, who beat thousands of teenagers to progress through trials from around the UK. They were chosen on the basis of being able to most closely match Manchester United and England star Wayne Rooney's passion, determination, skill and raw talent.
The girls, Samantha Dowd (aged 16) from Middlesex, Shannon Etherington (14) from Newcastle, Jamila Parker (14) from Wolverhampton, Jay Bradford (17) from Tamworth and Londoners Ashleigh Goddard (17), Bradie-Ann Haynes (17) and Sue Kumaning (15), will now go head-to-head with the other contestants in front of Rooney and co-presenter Andy Ansah in a series of street football challenges.
You can see for yourself how the girls fare against the boys when the first show of the new three-part series airs exclusively on Sky1 HD and Sky 1 at 6pm on Sunday, 8th November 2009. All contestants will be battling it out to emulate last year's winner Travis Beckford and become 2009's 'Coke Zero' Street Striker as well as win a once in a lifetime opportunity to attend the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ Final in South Africa.
Samantha Dowd, one of the lucky girls in the final twenty four who also plays for Watford, said: "I watched the show last year and the girls did really well and inspired me to have a go this year. It's great that so many girls have made it on as it shows just how strong women's and girls football is at the moment. All the girls are really determined to impress Wayne and Andy, and even things out with the boys by trying to get a girl to win the show this year."
Wayne Rooney added: "We said at the beginning of this series that we wanted to try to get more girls to apply this year. We certainly had a fantastic response, with more girls than ever making it through trials and on to the show.
"The standard this year is very high and, as viewers will see during the show, these girls can really hold their own against the boys. It's great to see so many female players with such strong street football talent and I hope the bigger contingent of girls on the show inspires more to get out there and play football."
James Williams, Head of Brand Experience, Coca-Cola GB, said: "Our aim was to give more talented footballers the chance to see if they had what it took to be the Coke Zero Street Striker so we're delighted that the show has appealed to so many girls this year. These girls are really talented which means that they're raising the bar across the board for all the contestants. We hope people enjoy watching the show."
'Coca-Cola Zero' has the great 'Coke' taste but zero sugar and has been a huge success since it was launched in the UK in 2006. Coca-Cola has a heritage in football that stretches back over 70 years and spans all levels of the game and is a partner of the forthcoming 2010 FIFA World Cup ™ in South Africa.
