Worried about mum's opinion Watch
The thing is, I've always loved kicking a ball about and since I started playing football with my brother at home I've surprised myself at how good I can play. I'm a fast runner, can kick the ball from high up in the air and I would love to take it further and join a girl's football team. However, my mum hates women playing football (even though she's totally supportive of everything else) and I don't think she'd want me to do it. I'm the sort of person that needs encouragement to try new things, especially from my mum. I'd really love to play football. Should I go for it anyway?
Sit her down and put on Bend It Like Beckham!
I love that film! I think her main concern is if I get injured, because I used to do kickboxing until the club screwed it up and I never got grades or a license. She was worried that I might get a blackeye or something. But she's seen me play football everyday outside and must know I'm quite good. I'm just dreading her response when I say I'm going to need football boots. Can you get girl's football boots anywhere? Size 7?
I have a few friends from university that played women's rugby, one had a bumper sticker on her car that said "Yes Mom, I still play rugby!"
and yes you can get size 7 boots. i dont know if they have girls boots or if they're the same as regular boots. i guess just check in your local sports shop in the female footwear section, if there are none..go for the male bit!
