Ladies To Play At Goodison To Help EitC
Blue Girls face Watford on Sunday 14 May at Grand Old Lady.
Everton Ladies will play at Goodison Park for their fixture against Watford Ladies on Sunday 14 May in aid of Everton in the Community’s Home Is Where The Heart Is campaign.
Kicking off at 2pm, fans are being encouraged to turn up and support the Ladies’ team for free and make a donation towards EitC's fundraising drive. Tickets are available from the box offices at Goodison Park, Everton One and Everton Two.
Everton Ladies, who usually play at the Select Security Stadium, are currently competing in the 2017 Spring Series league and are looking to challenge for the title, before the Women’s Super League starts in September.
As well as the football, Evertonians will be able to enjoy pre-match entertainment as Goodison Park transforms into a mini-match day, including football coaching sessions, inflatable games and face painting.
Andy Spence, Everton Ladies manager, said: “To have the opportunity to play at Goodison is fantastic for the players and it will be a special day for everyone associated with the team.
“We hope to see a big crowd in attendance so that we can showcase the very best of Everton Ladies to both new and existing fans.”
All proceeds from the match will go towards Home Is Where The Heart Is, a fundraising campaign led by David Unsworth and his Under-23 squad to support young people on the brink of homelessness across the city of Liverpool.
The aim is to raise £230,000 to fund and develop a supported-living initiative for young people in Liverpool, delivered by EitC. The funds raised will be used to purchase, and operate, a house close to Goodison Park which will offer 16 to 23-year-olds who have fallen on hard times, or have perhaps fallen out of the care system, a place to stay in Liverpool.
