Rosie  and Tony and Bradley Walton, Coaches for Armthorpe Wolves were pictured at a parliamentary event held this week to celebrate Girls’ Football Week which aims to inspire girls across all levels of ability to play football and get active. Sessions delivered by FA approved organisations will provide an introduction to the fundamentals of football, build key social skills and offer fun team-building exercises.

Girls of all ages are encouraged to sign up to Girls’ Football Week with a variety of sessions on offer. For more information and to find a session near you visit

The football resources created by The FA include Disney-inspired drills featuring strong, determined characters, including Rapunzel from Disney’s Tangled, Moana from Disney’s Moana, and Judy Hopps from Disney’s Zootropolis.  The drills will feature in the packs being distributed to schools, clubs and homes, aiming to inspire girls of all ages to try football, meet new friends and stay active, as well as to empower girls and build their self-confidence.

The FA has chosen Armthorpe Wolves to be an FA SSE Wildcats Centre, delivering weekly girls-only training for 5-11 year olds within a fun and safe environment at Armthorpe Southfield Primary School in Doncaster.

Local MP, Dame Rosie Winterton said: “Armthorpe Wolves are doing a fantastic job here in Doncaster, helping the FA work towards their target to double the number of women and girls taking part in football by 2020, and I was delighted to meet their coaches and to show my support for The FA’s Girls’ Football Week and hear about the increasing number of opportunities for girls to participate in
the sport across the country.”
