Pioneers, heroes and role models of the women’s game are about to stand shoulder-to-shoulder again on 12 June 2016, this time against The FA Women’s Premier League National Champions that will be crowned on 29 May following The FA WPL Championship Play Off Final between Brighton & Hove Albion and Sporting Club Albion at Wycombe Wanderers FC.
Current England assistant coach Marieanne Spacey, renowned goalkeepers Pauline Cope-Boanas and Rachel Brown-Finnis will take to the field along with a host of other Allstar legends to pull on their boots once again in aid of charity.
The FA Women’s Premier League Charity Trophy is at stake, but there is more to the day than that; the feast of football will also raise funds and awareness for Breast Cancer Care.
“While there is an obvious serious side to the event, I’m sure the characters involved will make it a hugely enjoyable day for all involved,” said FA WPL chairman Carol West.
“This charity match will see our National Champions play against proven stars of the past which is not only a great privilege for them but for the rest of us that will be at the match too.”
“We are extremely proud to be able to bring some of the players who have represented England over the years back together for this event,” she added. “They are responsible for moving the women’s game on so much in this country to the position that we have today.”
Nearly 40% of parents of girls report their daughters being inspired to take up a sport after watching professionals in action.
