Look at that… oh very… look at that. Watch Gina. Look at that. Very proper Gina’s got a royal lunge.
I love seeing children smile and be happy, that’s why I… er… I’m involved with football. I love to see a child go from being a little bit self-conscious and a little bit self-aware to just feeling full of joy and happiness and that’s… that’s hand on heart why I do it.
Push, push, push, push. That’s it. Good running, good running.
It’s not just about football, and when I first got involved I initially thought it was. But what actually happens is friendship, sisterhood, a bonding of these young innocent children, a sense of togetherness that goes really beyond football.
It’s about relationships that will get them through the rest of their lives. It’s about trusting in other people, trusting in your peers. And it’s an absolute joy to watch.
Some of these little girls, I’ve seen them personally come with no confidence whatsoever.
I’ve always had friends at football but at school I’ve only got like a couple of friends.
Unfortunately, she had a personal tragedy at five years old which really knocked her confidence. She used to cry in the night and say she doesn’t know how to make friends. She’d like to do it but she doesn’t know how. She doesn’t understand why she is different. So, we started her up with football and instantly her confidence just picked up. They all just build each other up and the only thing she wants to do is play football.
It’s all about fun at this age, but what that’s brought out in the girls is just this self-confidence, this self-belief.
They’ve developed so much it’s unbelievable. I mean these were girls that could literally not kick a football.
We were absolutely rubbish at the beginning, but we got better. We got better right?
We are friends. We all work together. Even if we win or lose we’re still friends and we’re still happy, and that makes us a good team.
Who are we?! Farsley!
Have we got some talent? Yeah. We, really have. We really have got some talent.
So, do I believe any of my little girls can make it? Damn right I do. Yeah, definitely.
