Huddersfield Town Ladies Football Club U16s
The BGF chose to sponsor Huddersfield Town U16s Ladies Football Club to enable them to participate at the ESF Youth Football Festival at Butlins in Skegness. The event took place from Friday 16th - Monday 19th May - and although the girls didn't win the tournament they triumphed with an award for 'Overall Fair Play'.
Apart from the football itself the girls had a great time at Butlins and got to meet a number of professional sportsmen at the presentation evening including Stuart Pearce (ex Nottingham Forest & England Captain), Jordan Nobbs (current ladies England & Arsenal midfielder), Rob Burrow (current Leeds RL scrum half) and Keith Senior (ex Leeds RL & GB centre)
The whole weekend was a wonderful example of the power of sport and the good it can do. The benefits are clear to see, keeping fit, skills development, building self esteem, teamwork, collaboration, friendship, fair play and most of all fun.
The BGF would like to congratulate all the girls, coaches & parents for their achievment - a fine example of how the BGF are assisting young people across the country.
