RAF Coaches promote Women’s Football in Gibraltar

  • +1

Representatives from the Royal Air Force took part in ‘Fun Football Friday’ at Westside Secondary school in Gibraltar this week helping to promote the bond between the RAF and Gibraltar FAs.

IMG_2830A session was held for girls of all abilities, aged 4-12 in the school gymnasium. Present were coaches Hugh McCluskie, Mark Simpson, Paul O’Brien, Daniel McNamara and team manager Michelle Harvey Perkins.

An enjoyable time was had by all and the girls thoroughly enjoyed being put through their paces by serving members of the RAF.

RAF Ladies General Manager McCluskie said “This was a great opportunity to give something back to the local community in Gibraltar. The National FA here has been so accommodating arranging a fixture against the women’s national team, aiding our preparations for the Inter Services fixtures in March.

Although being here, working with the girls and seeing the smiles on their faces is reward in itself!”
