Women at the Game is the brainchild of Jacqui Forster who has given our club fantastic support in her former role at Supporters Direct. The idea is to give women their first taste of live football in a supportive friendly environment or to create a friends’ group for women to attend a game together.
In Jacqui’s own words “I simply want to enable more women to feel happy going to watch sport, particularly men’s football,” says Jacqui. “I think that meeting other women before the game in a non-threatening venue, like a café, entering the ground together and wherever possible spending the match with their new found friends and even travelling home together will make more women of all backgrounds, ethnicity and religion more likely to give Going to the Footie a go. This is really about making friends with other women who support the same club.”
Enfield Town are keen to join in to mark International Women’s Day, which falls on Wednesday 8 March. As such we are offering all women and girls FREE entry to our home game against Havant & Waterlooville game on Saturday 4 March ( KO 3pm).
We are particularly keen to hear from some of our existing female supporters who would be prepared to assist on the day by welcoming new women supporters to the ground on 4 March.
