Celebrate Girls Football with Herefordshire FA and Leominster Town FC



A special football festival organised by Herefordshire FA and Leominster Town FC will take place on Sunday 6th August to celebrate the Women’s European Championships and girls football. Girls over the age of 5 are invited to attend and join in the fun at Bridge Street Leisure Centre in Leominster between 1 and 3:30pm. The festival will then be followed by a live screening of the UEFA Women’s final in the clubhouse to cap off the celebrations.


It doesn’t matter if you’ve never kicked a ball before or play every week; there will be something for everyone on the day. With over two and a half hours of football, girls will be able to join in with matches, skills sessions and various Euro themed games and activities. Furthermore coaches from Leominster Town and PACES will be on hand to start players on their journey to becoming a future Lioness and teach everyone some new skills. There will also be face painting, inflatables and plenty of prizes for everyone who attends including some special Lioness items.


Once the action comes to an end, everyone will be invited in to the Leominster Town clubhouse to watch the Women’s Euro final and cheer on the two teams. This brilliant event will take place at Leominster Town FC, Bridge Street Leisure Centre, Leominster, HR6 8EA and starts at 1pm. Joe Mathias, Football Development Officer for Herefordshire FA, encouraged any girls interested in the game to attend.


“We know there are loads of girls around Herefordshire who have been watching the euros and enjoy football but don’t realise there are dedicated girls teams for them to play in. This is a great opportunity for them to get into football, make some new friends and find out more. Girls football has grown rapidly over the past few years and we would love to see this continue.”


Players can just turn up on the day but for more information on the free event or girls football in general please contact Herefordshire FA on info@HerefordshireFA.com or 01432 342179
