LU Host She Inspires Tournament
Leisure United Jeffrey Humble played host to the Merseyside Police Chief Constable and the region’s Police Commissioner’s ‘She Inspires’ football tournament on Sunday July 3rd, alongside a top squad of partners. The ‘She Inspires’ initiative was a 2-month project, where 120 young women aged 15-18 participated and earned FA accredited qualifications in coaching and refereeing. Hesketh Colts Blues won the female football tournament final, but everyone involved won the opportunity to take part, gain confidence, grow self-esteem, and realise their potential on and off the pitch.

‘She Inspires’ is a fantastic example of community partners collaborating and investing in female football in an inclusive and inspirational way. BBC North West News covered the event, which was well timed as interest in female football increases ahead of the Women’s Euros. The talent, enthusiasm and focus of all involved was great to be part of and LU can’t wait to see participation in the female game continue to grow in its hubs, going forward.
