03 Jul WWSET PLAY GLOW IN THE DARK FOOTBALL
Throughout the year WWSET has been working in association with the Premier League Girls programme in order to try and engage more girls aged 14+ in Football based activities.
We have worked in areas such as High Wycombe, Beaconsfield, Marlow, Farnham Common and Slough, delivering sessions for females from the age of 11, through to our oldest participant at 78.
Wednesday 28th June WWSET hosted a tournament to showcase the girls that we had engaged through schools, and WWSET thought the best way to do this was try something unique and fun. On Wednesday 28th July WWSET hosted a Glow in the Dark Football tournament for the girls engaged in the PL project through schools.
WWSET decided to make this tournament a regional one, as a inter – satellite competition had been organised a few months before. The PL Girls representatives from both Arsenal and Reading community programmes were more than willing to get involved and before we knew it the day was upon WWSET.
After two and a half hours of blacking out windows, taping lines, setting up lights, and painting faces the tournament was ready to begin. With Slough & Eton representing WWSET, St Crispins for Reading, and Stoke Newington representing Arsenal the trophy was waiting for the winners.
After some shots Fran Kirby would be proud of, as well as saves that were out of this world, St Crispins took home the glow in the dark trophy, whilst Stoke Newington came second and Slough & Eton finished third. All participants went home with a glow in the dark trophy and the memories.
Well done to all teams involved!
