Good for you, girls says PM

WHILE she has more important things such as Brexit on her mind, it’s good to know that Prime Minister Theresa May hasn’t forgotten about her constituents.

The Maidenhead MP gave a shout-out to Wargrave Women and Girls’ Football Club during last week’s Prime Minister’s Questions.

Mrs May, who is president of the club, was answering a question from Lewisham Deptford MP Vicky Foxcroft on the disparity in prize money between men’s and women’s football teams.

She replied: “As president of the Wargrave Girls’ Football Club, I am very willing to commend all those girls and other females who play football.

“Members across this house have been concerned to hear of the disparity between the winnings that the honourable lady has raised.

“Obviously this is a matter for the football authorities but I am sure they will have heard the concern expressed in this house about the current position.”

The club, which recently changed its name is one of the largest female-only clubs in the country with more than 300 players ranging from young children to adults.
