As reported in the Barnsley Gazette, Barnsley Chronicle and Barnsley News and Sport on 8th April, Stephanie recently visited the Dorothy Hyman Sports Centre as part of the FA’s ‘Football Footprint’ campaign.
The campaign aims to celebrate and showcase investment in grassroots football here in Barnsley and right across England, including investment in three new grass pitches and one new artificial pitch at the Dorothy Hyman Centre.
During her visit, Stephanie was shown the new pitches, and was presented with the FA’s Grassroots Champion award.
Commenting, Stephanie said:
“As a keen football player for the Parliamentary Women’s Football Club, I understand how important investment in grassroots football is.
“So I was delighted to have the opportunity to visit Dorothy Hyman Sports Centre and see the work that goes into the local game in my constituency.
“It was great to meet fantastic staff, volunteers and players, and I was honoured to be presented with the FA’s Grassroots Champion award as part of the ‘Football Footprint’ campaign.”
