Bend it like Helen: the only female footballer in the village

2nd Mar 2016


Helen Watts loved football as a kid but became discouraged because “girls didn’t play football then”. Now, thanks to Village Games, she’s living out her football fantasy

Thanks to Village Games’ walking football initiative – using facilities local to Helen at Baslow Sports Field in Derbyshire  – the retiree can finally live out her football playing dreams.
