Part of: THIS WEEKEND: Storyhouse Women

In July 2022 women’s football was thrown into the spotlight after England were crowned UEFA Women’s EURO 2022 champions.

Now the women’s game is the single biggest growth opportunity in football today and it remains a top priority for FIFA.

Although football has grown exponentially at all levels, the passion and rising popularity of the sport offers vast untapped potential.

Join a relaxed panel discussion among women working in football who will tell their personal stories, explain what football means to them and the young people they are supporting or coaching, and finally what can be done to support young people leaving academies.

This event is suitable for primary aged children, secondary aged young people and anyone else who loves immersing themselves in a good chat about football.


Panellists include:

Grace Vella

Former Liverpool and Manchester City footballer Grace is founder of Miss Kick  – a clothing and sportswear brand for women and girls in football. Profits from the clothing go straight to the Miss Kick Foundation, a charity that provides free opportunities for girls to get into sport.

Lorwri Tegan Earith

Lowri is the founder of Girls and Goals which was created on the back of her daughter joining the local girls’ football team. Soon afterwards, Lowri realised they had found a shared community they had been looking for.

Girls and Goals aims to connect with as many families across the UK as possible by providing a supportive, inclusive and encouraging community where girls can thrive in sport regardless of their age, ability or financial situation.

Chairing this panel is football coach Siân Rourke, who found herself volunteering when her son’s football team were short of help. Already a keen sports person, football fan and granddaughter of a former professional footballer, Siân loves flying the flag for women in football and loves seeing the shock on people’s faces when they realise she knows the off side rule!

Molly Wood 

Molly having previously played for FC United and Bolton Wanderers. Molly is currently top goal scorer for the season for Chester FC, having scored 26 goals so far. Alongside representing Chester FC, Molly works full time as a Finance Manager in a logistics firm.
