United Women duo spread Euros excitement

Alessia was as equally enthusiastic in what is undeniably an exciting time for the women’s game, with a home tournament just around the corner.

“The Women’s Euros next summer is so exciting, not just for the country, but for all the local girls like those here today. Manchester’s such a special footballing city and for Old Trafford to be hosting some games, so close to where these girls go to school, is inspirational for them.”

The girls who participated are all keen players who attend regular after-school sessions and were led by the Foundation’s female education development officer, Claire Harrop. Claire is part of the Foundation’s Girls’ Development programme which aims to break down barriers and enable young girls to achieve their full potential both in sport and other industries.

“Representation and visibility is so important to what we do, so for the girls to be able to meet and play with Ella and Alessia really is an invaluable experience for them,” Claire said. “Having a home Euros next year only adds to the creation of an environment where these girls can think anything is possible for them.”
