Fleetwood Town Juniors Girls and many locals all got behind the Lionesses by packing out Poolfoot Farm for their World Cup Final match against Spain on Sunday morning, making it a great atmosphere on site.
With both indoors and outdoors filled out by the Fleetwood Town Juniors Girls teams, their families and friends, as well as many from the local area, it was a great occasion to see hundreds come together to watch England's Women's team in their first ever World Cup Final.
Despite the result - which saw Spain win 1-0 thanks to a 29th minute goal from Olga Carmona - many cheered on the Lionesses for the full 90 minutes, whilst also celebrating the amazing achievement made by Sarina Wiegman and her side by reaching the final.
The Women's game has seen a huge increase in participation number over recent years, more so with the Lionesses winning the Euros last summer with victory over the German's at the home of football, and now the Trust at Fleetwood Town are making it more accessible.
In May this year, the Club announced a new Female Football Stratgey, in the aim to see girls engage in football activity from as young as three years old, providing a range of initiatives to help develop the player technically, tactically, socially and emotionally, often being delivered in the club’s state-of-the-art training facility, Poolfoot Farm Sports & Leisure Complex.
In addition to developing the player and person, we will encourage females into other roles within the game, increasing the volume of qualified female officials and coaches throughout the club’s network.
