The girls, aged between 5 and 12 years took to the turf with the entire W-League squad, including current Matilda superstars Sam Kerr and Eliza Campbell, and American quartet Katie Naughton, Alyssa Mautz, Nikki Stanton and Rachel Hill. The sporting legends were all on hand to meet the youngsters and help them develop their skills.
“Gold Road took great pleasure in combining our support of women’s sport with the promotion of the World Cup to the next generation of Perth’s budding young footballing girls,” said Gold Road Resources’ Executive Director - Exploration and Growth Justin Osborne.
“In a Football World Cup year in which a number of the Perth Glory women will be representing Australia, the opportunity to see W-League Grand Finalists offering up their time for the benefit of over 120 young girls was one we really enjoyed.
“Let’s all hope the Glory women can now go all the way this coming weekend and show we have all backed a real winner! Thanks and good luck Glory”, said Mr Osborne.
Several parents praised the clinic’s success, commenting on how much their children had enjoyed the event, with Kellie Giles confirming her daughter had an 'amazing morning' and Sammi Lucas revealing that her child was 'on cloud nine' following the session.
Gold Road Resources are an A-League partner of Perth Glory and sponsor of the free Girls for Glory clinic, which covers all aspects of soccer and encourages all young girls between 5 and 12 to learn what it takes to be a female all star under the guidance of W-League players.
