Girls in Suffolk are being encouraged to take up the beautiful game as part of the FA's Girls Football Week.
The week is being run as part of a national campaign to try and get more youngsters involved in the game and to raise the profile of the sport.
Clubs across the county will be putting on a range of activities with girls being given the opportunity to play, train or learn more about the women's game.
As part of the event junior player sessions – known as Wildcats – will be taking place in Lowestoft, Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds and Haverhill with a number of other clubs running events for a range of age groups.
Suffolk FA hope that the event will help to showcase the female football at every level whilst also inspiring new players and volunteers to come forward. Nationally, the FA wants the number of female players to double by the year 2020.
