Play football in a safe, fun and friendly environment

Great opportunity for girls to play football on a three-day course hosted by Charlton's Amber-Keegan Stobbs

Charlton Athletic midfielder Amber-Keegan Stobbs has set herself a twin goal - both on and off the pitch.

On the field, Amber is settling into life with Championship side Charlton following spells with Reading, Everton and most recently West Ham.

That link with the Hammers has continued, despite her move from north of the River Thames to SE7, and is proving fruitful off the pitch too.

In July, Amber teamed up with West Ham skipper Mark Noble to launch 'Equal Focus Football', to provide equal opportunities for young girls to play football and develop girls' programmes in local areas.

Helping young females have a great path in football is a passion of Amber's. She has previously worked with West Ham Foundation as the Women & Girls Officer and is a FA qualified coach.

Later this month, Equal Focus Football is hosting it's third girls only Half-Term Camp, run over three days at St Martin's School in Brentwood..

“We’re excited for our Camp and to have the girls join us for three days of football which will be lead by coaches who want to empower the girls to play," said Amber.

"As a female footballer it’s great to see so many girls involved and to be able to help them with more opportunities.

"The three days start on 24 October and run from 10-3pm each day. There will be fun challenges, skills session and games. We have some prizes for the Camp such as WSL tickets, signed boots, t-shirts and discounts for future events."
