PIONEERS, heroes and role models of the women’s game are about to stand shoulder-to-shoulder again later this month when they take to the field for a Charity Trophy match at the home of Leamington FC.

The Brakes will host the winners of the FA Women’s Premier League play-off match between Brighton & Hove Albion and Sporting Club Albion.

Current England assistant coach Marieanne Spacey, renowned goalkeepers Pauline Cope-Boanas and Rachel Brown-Finnis will take to the field along with a host of other Allstar legends to pull on their boots once again in aid of charity on June 12 (2pm kikc off).

The FA Women’s Premier League Charity Trophy is at stake, but there is more to the day than that with a feast of football also set raise funds and awareness for Breast Cancer Care.

“While there is an obvious serious side to the event, I’m sure the characters involved will make it a hugely enjoyable day for all involved,” said FA WPL chairman Carol West.

“This charity match will see our National Champions play against proven stars of the past which is not only a great privilege for them but for the rest of us that will be at the match too.

“We are extremely proud to be able to bring some of the players who have represented England over the years back together for this event.

“They are responsible for moving the women’s game on so much in this country to the position that we have today.”
