UK Sports Minister Hopes the Women’s World Cup Will Inspire the Next Generation of Female Footballers Thursday 25 June 2015 PDF Print she has politely refused to predict scores for the upcoming England games, she has stated that she thinks the England Women’s team can go far The Minister, who is also the MP for Chatham and Aylesford, is a both a keen football fan and a qualified football coach. Though she has politely refused to predict scores for the upcoming England games, she has stated that she thinks the England Women’s team can go far in Canada this year. While she would like to see England reach the finals of the FIFA Women’s World Cup, she admits that it will be a “challenge” for the team. Despite working as an MP and Minister, Crouch has held a position as manager of a girls’ football team in her constituency. As a huge England fan and advocate of grassroots football, she commented on the situation, saying "It has been an exciting time over the past couple of years for the development of women's football and it has changed a lot since I played as a kid." However, Tracey Crouch is more focussed on the tournament than the political issues at FIFA. "Women's football is strong but I would always like to see it get stronger,” the minister told the BBC. "The further they progress, the higher profile it gets and that will inspire people even more." The women’s World Cup has started a week after the high profile resignation of FIFA president, Sepp Blatter, who famously told the media that female players should play in tighter shorts. Team Colours, a UK manufacturer and supplier of high quality custom sportswear, takes a keen interest in both international tournaments and what they do for British sports. A spokesperson for the company commented on the news, saying: “We wholeheartedly agree with the Ms Crouch on this matter, and we will support our players throughout the tournament. International tournaments like this always catch the public eye, and the further England go, the more of an impact their results will have on people looking to get into women’s football. “If you’re considering taking up women’s football we highly recommend it. It’s a fun sport which is rewarding, both physically and socially. Contrary to what Sepp Blatter once said about the women’s football kits needing to be tighter, if you want to catch people’s eyes you need high quality custom sportswear for your team.” Team Colours is a UK-based company creating custom sports kits and bespoke team wear, formed in 2000. They offer a wide range of designs for team sports, catering for customer’s specific requirements with a diverse choice of colours, fabrics, linings, text, full printing and embroidery.
