Anna Farrell, Football Development Officer at Liverpool County FA, said: “We’re so pleased to have teamed up with Race for Life to deliver our first-ever Women’s Beginner Football Festival. We want to see more women playing and trying football across the region; however, we also feel we have a responsibility to raise awareness and support the work that Race for Life and Cancer Research UK does across Merseyside.
“We hope that this festival, the first of its kind in Merseyside, is just the start and the first of many more to come, in addition to the establishment of weekly Women’s Beginner Football sessions. We welcome women of all ages and abilities to come down, play football, have fun and raise money as part of Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life.”
