A GIRLS football team is fulfilling their dream after being given the "amazing opportunity" to play in a stadium.

It will be a night to remember on Tuesday as Worcester City Girls Under 15 and Worcester United Girls will be given the opportunity to play at Sixways.

The teams will walk onto the pitch, music playing and crowds cheering as they play their league fixture. 

Steve Birmingham, lead coach for Worcester City Girls U15,  said it is the first time this has happened for a local girls' team in the Mercian League. 

"Those girls really deserve this after the work they have done over the years," said Mr Birmingham.

"It is a nice reward for their hard work as they have fundraised a lot of money.

"It is what they deserve and they are a great bunch of lovely girls.

"It's one that will not sink in until Tuesday's game.

"We have organised it so the music will play when they walk out.

"When I was a boy, I only dreamed of having this experience, and they are fulfilling their dream."

Tuesday's game, which kicks off at 7pm, will be one of two games the girls will play at the stadium to give every player the chance to play on a professional pitch.

The second game will be against Halas Hawks JFC in Halesowen.

The Worcester City Girls currently play at Perdiswell Leisure Centre, so it will be a huge change for them to play at Sixways Stadium. 

Mr Birmingham said the girls are extremely excited. 

He added that the opportunity is not just for the girls but also puts the limelight on bigger issues.

"You do not need to be a boy to play at the stadium and this shows it does not matter if you are a girl or a boy," he said.

"Girls aged 14 and 15 can now play in big stadiums and be inspired to go professional."
