Girls Team’s contribution to the FA’s RESPECT programme
Penn & Tylers Green FC Girls - Award Winners
Penn & Tylers Green FC Girls were thrilled that Fran Kirby, of Reading Women and England, presented their FA’s Youth Trust Award for Fair Play for 2013/2014 (within the counties of Berkshire and Buckinghamshire) at the recent FA Women’s Super League Continental Cup Final between Arsenal and Manchester City at Adams Park, home of Wycombe Wanderers FC.
The award is recognition for the girls team’s outstanding contribution to the FA’s RESPECT programme and for promoting fair and enjoyable football for young people.
Fran recently got her England career off to a dream start with a player of the match performance by scoring on debut against Sweden in a 4-0 win. The girls will be hoping to see Fran in action later this month as a group of over 50 girls and families will be attending England Women’s historic match against Germany at Wembley Stadium on Sunday 23 November. The match will be a record attendance for an England Women’s international, with the FA having sold 55,000 tickets.
Thanks to Ben Hoskins for the photo.
