Girls League scores with grant
 Women's Football News 21 Oct 2010
Female Footballers in Herefordshire are celebrating following a £5,000 grant awarded by the Football Foundation, the country's largest sports charity.
The funding boost will allow Herefordshire Girls Football League to develop opportunities for Under-8 girls to participate in fun, football and skills based sessions over the next three years and help support the league and its member clubs to grow and retain current Under-10 provision. There is also the opportunity for new and qualified coaches to gain qualifications as long as they show a commitment to developing the female game in the County.
Funded by the Premier League, The FA, and the Government via Sport England, the Football Foundation is the nation's largest sports charity. Launched in July 2000, the Foundation celebrated its tenth anniversary this summer and has so far supported around 8,000 community sports projects worth £930m.
Paul Thorogood, Chief Executive of the Football Foundation said: "We warmly congratulate the League and the local FA for their hard work and dedication in securing this award.
"Sport is playing a central role in helping people to stay fit, strengthen communities and promote responsibility amongst young people. This new project in Herefordshire is but one example of thousands across the country that the Football Foundation is supporting with money provided by our funding partners - the Premier League, The FA and Government."
Alexis Lunn-Gadd, Girls and Women's FDO for Herefordshire FA said: "this funding received from the Football Foundation by the League is testament to the hard work that the Management Committee and member Clubs have put in over the last 12-months to ensure that females in Herefordshire have an opportunity to participate in football no matter what age or ability they are.
"The League has recently been awarded the FA's Charter Standard League award and the Funding from the Foundation will help it to achieve its long-term objectives for providing football to the girls of Herefordshire and supporting the development of coaches and officials to deliver these opportunities, ensuring they are sustainable."
The next Girls Under-8 'Get into Football' Session takes place on Friday 22nd October at the Point 4 in Hereford from 5.30pm - 6.30pm. There is a small charge of £2 per participant.
