More than 120 junior girls attended three Bunbury Primary School visits by Perth Glory Womens players on March 15, where they had the opportunity to engage with elite players and develop their football skills.

W-League players Tash Rigby and Sarah Carroll joined sessions at Cooinda Primary School, Adam Road Primary and South Bunbury Primary school, with many of the junior girls trying football for the first time.

The Glory players signed autographs and answered questions from the young players after conducting a series of fun football activities.

Football West Womens Development Manager Sam Watkins said the initiative was a great success.

“It was fantastic to see so many young girls playing football today,” she said.

“A lot of them have never tried football before so there were lots of smiles and I think they loved having a kick-about with Tash and Sarah.”

The players are part of the Football West Club Ambassador Program and were visiting the area as part of Female Football Week.
