Women And Girls Football Derby

Girls from John Spence Community High School in North Shields represented Newcastle United Foundation against Biddick College in Sunderland in a 7v7 football match.

The game was organised as part of the FA Women & Girls programme and Building Bridges supported by Vera Baird, Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner in the build-up to this weekโ€™s Tyne & Wear Derby at St Jamesโ€™ Park.

Vera Baird has lent her support to the inititative:

โ€œIโ€™m a huge supporter of the work of Newcastle United Foundation and the Foundation of Light and Iโ€™m delighted their work is encouraging more girls to play football.โ€

โ€œIt offers a great opportunity and Iโ€™ve no doubt some of the girls will now be taking more interest in playing football.ย  The training sessions may have created a future member of Newcastle United or Sunderland Womenโ€™s Football team.โ€

The girls are all aged 13 to 16 years old and attend a weekly football club at their school, thanks to funding from the FA and Premier League. None of the girls had played football before joining the programme in September 2014 and are improving week on week.

Marc Burnip PE teacher from John Spence Community High School said:

“It is a great honour for our girls to represent Newcastle United in the Tyne and Wear derby fixture against Sunderland. The girls are extremely happy to be wearing the famous black and white stripes and I am very proud of them.

โ€œA massive thank you to Liam from Newcastle United Foundation who has been delivering the weekly girls only football sessions.”

Shelly Brogden who attends John Spence and played in the game said:

โ€œIt was great to play against Sunderland, the weather was awful but everyone gave 100% and enjoyed the occasion.โ€

Lisa Bell project coordinator at the Foundation added:

โ€œThe game was played in a great spirit with both teams embracing the occasion in the build up to the Tyne & Wear Derby.โ€
