  1. Hi, got to the Everton in the Community game with DIYAR….players and visitors taken round the Everton Stadium first. 5 aside games on outside Astra turf . DIYAR won but home team not long formed. Went to Sheffield to the park run which DIYAR team lead at the start. We moved down to the ground of Football Unites, Racism Divides. It was a great tournament with 6 other teams . 15 min games and lots of good play by all teams. Then a final 9 aside on full pitch …DIYAR v a mix of women from all teams. Think it was a draw. There was the photo exhibition in walled garden …Palestinisn food . Such a good tour. Still showing the film. Balls Barriers and Bulldozers time June 30th at Bolton Socialist club . They will be sorry they did not make any of the games.

  2. I can’t be with you as I live in Yorkshire, but I wish you good luck and best wishes.

    • Hi Phil, the team will also be visiting Liverpool and Leeds in the coming week or two, so you might be able to catch them there.
