The Lionesses are inspirational, we are in awe of their determination and dedication to the sport that they love. Many of us here watched them win the Euros last year and there were a few tears of joy when they lifted the cup.
It’s fantastic that girls who want to pursue a career in football are now able to do so, it wasn’t that long ago that girls weren’t even allowed to play football in school, football was strictly for the boys only.
We have been extremely excited about the world cup here at Layston, we have watched the games and cheered the ladies on, it’s been a real focal point this summer.
On Sunday we were all up early to have our breakfast ready to take our seats in the lounge. Whilst waiting for the game to start we reminisced about the 1966 world cup, where we were, what we did to celebrate.
The Lionesses did amazingly well, they worked hard to keep control of the game, but it wasn’t to be, this time.
We’ve enjoyed the tournament; it’s given us lots to talk about and plenty of causes to celebrate. Well done Lionesses from all at Layston grove.
