RACHEL YANKEY VISITS STREETGAMES

Arsenal Ladies Rachel Yankey visited StreetGames Football Pools Fives this weekend

The StreetGames Football Pools Fives is a programme taking football to young men and women from underprivileged communities across the UK.

The London women’s regional final, supported by Rachel Yankey, was held on Sat 7 June at Westway Sports Centre in West London and attended by ten women’s teams.

The winners will go on to play in the National Final at St. George’s Park.

Yankey was quoted saying, “I think it is a brilliant tournament. Seeing some of the talent in the girls is fantastic so I’m sure they will represent London well at St George’s Park"

"I think giving the opportunity is massive, there is that sense of responsibility to the team, representing their youth clubs and borough and I think that is really important."

She went on to say, "Football should be for all, it is just about playing the game so for the girls I’ve met, the StreetGames Football Pools Fives is a massive tournament because it gives them that opportunity they might not get otherwise."

"It is just fantastic that the StreetGames Football Pools Fives can give them this chance because there are some excellent players out there.”
