Women And Girls 5 A Side Football Festival

Last week, Newcastle United Foundation hosted a girls only 5 a side festival at Power League, North Shields as part of the Women & Girls project.

The Women and Girls programme, jointly funded by The FA, Premier League and Sport England, is part of The FA’s wider strategy on growing participation figures for women’s football. Its vision is to become the second-largest team sport after men’s football by 2018.

Friday’s football festival was an opportunity for five schools to come together at a central venue for competitive games. Kenton School, Marden High School, Ashington High School, Churchill Community College and St Thomas More Academy all entered squads of seven players.

The festival was played in great spirit with some excellent football on display, and all teams participated in a minimum of four games. In the end, Churchill Community College were crowned champions after gaining three wins and a draw.

Kirsty Hoffman, PE teacher from Marden High School said:

 “It was a great opportunity for the girls to play against other schools in a competitive environment”

Lisa Bell, Women and Girls Coordinator for the Foundation said:

“We had a great turnout at the football festival. It is great to have so many girls willing to participate in the project, and we are hoping to increase these numbers as the year progresses.”

In its first year, The Foundation delivered 353 Women and Girls sessions to 209 girls and set up 12 satellite clubs across the region. The second year of the programme started in September and the numbers are on track to increase this season.
