Women’s football sessions inspired by Lionesses

A new initiative has been launched for Derbyshire Dales women footballers inspired by the performances of England's Lionesses in the Euro 2017 qualifiers.

Weekly women's football sessions kick off on Tuesday 3 May in Eyam, the first in the district organised by Derbyshire Dales Village Games in association with your District Council and the Derbyshire FA.

The sessions for ages 16+ will take place every Tuesday in term time 7.30 - 8.30pm at Eyam Sports Association's mutli-use games area in Hawkhill Road and cost £3.

Said Derbyshire Dales Village Games coordinator Ian Dipaolo:

"The interest in Eyam was sparked by a successful charity football match in the village back in December. We're delighted to be building on the terrific profile the England team are creating for the women's game thanks to their magnificent unbeaten run in the Euro 2017 qualifiers."

Anyone interested can simply turn up on the night or contact Ian for more information by email to ian@communitysportstrust.co.uk or call 01629 761387.
