Northumberland FA is hosting a women’s and girls’ football open evening next week.

The event will take place at Blue Flames Sporting Club, next to Northumberland FA, in Benton, Newcastle, from 5pm until 8pm.

The aim of the evening is to encourage existing and new participants to attend and view a range of opportunities within football including coaching, refereeing, playing, volunteering, qualifications, bursary schemes and flexible format competitions such as Futsal and Just Play.

It is a fantastic opportunity to recruit women and girls who aren’t currently part of the game as well as showing existing participants alternative or additional opportunities that are available for them.

There will be a range of organisations, clubs and colleges at the inaugural event, including Newcastle United Foundation, the Northumberland Girls’ League and Northumberland Women’s League.
