Posh Women first team stars visit local girls' junior teams.
Peterborough United Women first team players paid a visit to two local girls' junior teams, Netherton United and Thorpe Wood Rangers, to inspire the next generation of female footballers.
Defenders Jess Evans and Elloise Copson spent the evening at Focus Centre last Thursday, answering questions, participating in training before posing for photos at the end of the sessions with the players, and even coaches.
Speaking on the event, Thorpe Wood Rangers coach Andrew Readshaw said: “Jess and Elloise were amazing. The way they made time for our girls and their thoughts and input was such a big eye-opener and an occasion they will never forget. They took part in a Q&A session, showed their skills and gave advice and encouragement to our girls.
"This has been invaluable to them. They now have aspirations in the game that they previously weren't aware of, and Posh now have a lot of new fans. Thanks to all at Posh who were involved in this, I look forward to working together in the future."
Also, last Wednesday evening, goalkeeper Neive Corry and defender Lucie Mugridge travelled down to The Grange Venue to visit the Netherton United U10s team, participating in a question-and-answer session, providing feedback whilst watching the session, and spending team to take some photographs.
Mugridge said: “The women’s game has been growing massively since the summer, especially the increase of local junior girls teams, so it was fantastic to spend the evening at Netherton United, hopefully inspiring the next generation. We have seen with our attendances this season has been an increase of young girls coming down to support, so us players want to repay the favour and help inspire those even more."
