At Tuesday's Sky Bet Championship fixture against Cardiff City at Griffin Park, Brentford FC celebrated women at the game with a range of activities. Through Brentford Women’s FC, and the Brentford FC Community Sports Trust’s work in the community, hundreds of women and girls take part in football sessions in the local area every week and that work was celebrated last Tuesday. The activities were deisgned to shine a spotlight on our women footballers and encourage future generations to get involved in one of the fastest growing sports in the UK.
Members of the Brentford Women's team were in the Stadium Shop and Family Area before the match to sign autographs and pose for photos. Other players were dotted around the ground before the match to meet and greet supporters and talk about their experiences of playing for The Bees. And at half-time, the Women's team will take to the pitch for a skills demonstration.
The match was broadcast live on BBC Radio London and the station also featured the female focus. Amy Crook, who is Brentford Women's FC General Manager and Welfare Officer as well as Brentford FC Community Sports Trust Matchday Community Coordinator, spoke to the station at the match.
