QPR Girls Win At Wembley

Nice story in the Hammersmith & Shepherds Bush Gazette this week regarding Queen’s Park Rangers Girls FC. Well done to them and everyone else involved – Steve Russell

Queen’s Park Rangers Girls FC, which has players from the Ealing, Fulham and Uxbridge areas, represented the club and Middlesex County in the FA’s National Football Festival. QPR Girls FC’s involvement in Grassroots Community football was celebrated at the event, which was a partnership between the FA and McDonald’s.

The Hoops began the day with three games against U10 sides from across the country, in Northwick Park. FA staff were on hand to teach new skills to the youngsters – skills that would be demonstrated later in the day. The team then travelled to Wembley Stadium to meet up with 1966 World Cup winner Sir Geoff Hurst, prior to playing their final game under the famous Wembley Arch against Croydon Borough FC. The game finished in a close victory, 1-0 to QPR Girls, and after the game, Manager Anthony Hennelly and Coach Kerri Coombs collected a very special souvenir of their day in North London, a medal from the guests of honour in the Royal Box.
