SHARING SKILLS WITH LOCAL SCHOOL

Posted on: Tue 07 May 2013

A trio of Chelsea Ladies stars met pupils from the Beacon School in Surrey today (Tuesday) to offer their expertise to aspiring female footballers.

Sweden's Sofia Jakobsson joined Brazilian international Ester and England Under-19 Hannah Blundell to host an assembly alongside Chelsea Ladies head of development Robert Udberg, before delivering a coaching session to the school's Year 7, 8 and 9 girls.

Over 300 girls at the school were able to gain an insight in to what it takes to play football at the highest level. After a question and answer session the players handed out 100 free tickets to the Blues' FA WSL Continental Cup game on 19 May.

Chelsea Ladies next FA Women's Super League game is at Wheatsheaf Park, Staines, on 12 May. Liverpool are the opposition with a 2pm kick-off. Chelsea Ladies will also be in Continental Cup action on 19 May against Liverpool at Imperial Fields, Tooting and Mitcham - kick -off 2pm.
