Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA held a recreational football festival called Springfest for 8 teams at Rotherham Football Centre on 23rd April 2022. The event was part of a drive to encourage more women to play football outside of competitive 11-a-side league teams.
FURD has been running recreational football sessions for women for the last nine years, attracting women of many different ages and backgrounds. On this occasion FURD's representatives were all aged between 41 and 64.
While the event was more about playing for fun than winning, we hope our team can be forgiven for celebrating coming out top against much younger teams!
New players are always welcome at our sessions - we offer both running and walking football sessions for all ages.
