England and Notts County goalkeeper Carly Telford is calling all females to find their football as she launches a special goalkeeper workshop for females as part of the Nottingham City of Football project. The unique #SHESTHEKEEPER event will be held at Forest Sports Zone at Forest Recreation Ground on Tuesday July 5 and will include a chance for women to come along and test the England goalkeeper with a ‘Test Telford’ shootout. There will be a chance for photographs and autographs with Carly and an exhibition showcasing the first ever women’s goalkeeping glove, made specifically for women’s hands and manufactured by Nottingham-based Precision Goalkeeping. Carly Telford said: “As a female goalkeeper I know first-hand the difficulties that can arise when trying to get into football both as a youngster and for older women too. “What I love about the Nottingham City of Football project is they are really looking to get everyone involved from all walks of life and women of all abilities. https://spying.ninja/how-to-put-parental-controls-on-ipad/. “I’ll also be doing a goalkeeping workshop on the night, which I think the ladies will enjoy, it’s always nice to get involved with girls that have a real interest in the game like I do and encouraging them to go for it and chase their dreams. ”

Katie Gibson, Programme and Partner Coordinator at Nottingham City of Football said: “It’s fantastic to be working with Carly again, she’s a great ambassador for the Nottingham City of Football project and I’m sure she will inspire loads of women and girls to come along and take part. “We’re really keen to get across that this is for every woman out there that wants to give football a try, so don’t be afraid to come and take part. “Whether you’ve never kicked a ball, fancy a go at being a goalkeeper or just want to socialise and have a bit of fun – come along and join us for what I’m sure will be a fantastic night. ”

Key challenges to be met for Nottingham City of Football include raising the levels of participation in football in Nottingham, promoting the cultural, social, health and educational benefits of football, supporting diversity among those playing football, and creating new initiatives, which can be replicated across other regions in the country. The #SHESTHEKEEPER event will take place from 6-8pm and entry is FREE. There will be a goalkeeper workshop and skills session from 6-7pm followed by a ‘Test Telford’ shootout for all females in attendance from 7-8pm. Find your football at
