Football event just for girls

THE Derbyshire County Football Association is to hold the latest of its Football 4 Girls events at Wirksworth Leisure Centre next week.

The girl-only football day will be held on Thursday, April 5, at the centre, running from 10am to 3pm.

A number of similar events were held at the venue last year and proved successful.

The day is for any girl aged between 8-15, whether they have played football before or would like to try it for the first time.

All the coaches on the day will be FA qualified and the event will be jam packed with activities such as football skills and drills, team building exercises and nutrition and first aid talks.
