HER GAME TOO: Watford FC star joins Kings Langley open training session

 Published on: 31st October 2023   |   By: Dean Shaw   |   Category: Uncategorized

Kings Langley FC (KLFC) celebrated their partnership with Her Game Too with a special event on Saturday, October 14.

KLFC’s partnership with the campaign, which aims to tackle sexism in sport, was the focus of their league game at home to Leighton Town.

As part of the celebrations, the club offered free entry to all females as well as various free activities.

Local coaching company JP Pro Football also delivered a free open training session, which was attended by 38 girls, many of whom had never played before.

The 90-minute session was broken up by a visit from a very special guest, Watford and Wales legend Helen Ward, who took part in a Q&A session.

A club spokesperson said: “We’re delighted that 135 female supporters took advantage of the free tickets on offer, which equated for just under half the total attendance on the day.

“During the event, a local coach expressed an interest in setting up another girls’ team at the club and as a result the club is now taking expressions of interest for an Under 10s team, which is great news.”
