Young football fans can put their goalkeeping skills to the test before cheering on Everton Ladies in the Merseyside derby this Wednesday (27 July).

Local youngsters aged 8-16 can learn new goalkeeping skills, drills and pick up tips from top coaches as the Continental Shot Stoppers roadshow stops off in North Liverpool.

The nationwide roadshow, developed by Continental and the FA, aims to develop youngsters’ goalkeeping skills with interactive activities to enhance speed, reaction, accuracy and reflex.

There will also be a host of games, competitions and a chance to meet Everton Ladies goalkeeper Rachel Brown and defender Alex Greenwood.

The sessions will be held at Goals Soccer Centre, Park Lane, Netherton,from 2:30pm on Wednesday. To reserve your place, contact [email protected]

All those that take part will also receive free tickets to support the Blues as they take on Liverpool on Wednesday night.

The Blues got the second half of the season off to a flying start on Sunday, defeating Chelsea 2-0 and recording their largest attendance of the campaign.

Everton’s win takes them within two points of Chelsea and has set them up nicely for Wednesday’s Merseyside derby at home to Liverpool, who are four points adrift at the foot of the table.

The match kicks off at 7pm at Marine FC in Crosby and Evertonians can come along to support the girls for bargain prices, with tickets just £3 for adults and £1 for juniors (under 16s).
