“The event went really well and Rachel was lovely and generous with her time and commitment to the event. It worked really well having both an International players perspective and that of a top coach in the female game. The fact that the lionesses have now progressed to the semi-final has meant our timing for theming around the female game was perfect.” – Roy, Shropshire FA
