THE search is on to find women and girl footballers to take part in a new five-aside tournament.

But the less experience you have of playing in a team the better.

The competition, for the age group 16-25, is not open to anyone already playing organised football for an FA registered team.

Instead the idea is to encourage anyone with an interest in football to get involved in playing, with opportunities for training, coaching and work experience schemes.

Eight cites are hosting tournaments in March and April, with the aim of staging a national final at a Premier League club in May.

The event is being supported locally by NACRO/ Liverpool Sport Action Zone and Positive Fut ures North Liverpool while national backing comes from, among others, the BBC, The FA Premier League, The FA, The Football Foundation, Kick it Out and the PFA.

If you are aged between 16 and 25 and wish to be involved, whether you are part of a team that plays for fun or an individual who would like an opportunity to play, contact: Dave Verburg, Positive Futures North Liverpool on 0151 207 6003 (mobile: 07921576694) or e-mail (north Liverpool).

If you are in the south of the city, contact Rhiannon Brown, NACRO, Liverpool Sport Action Zone on 0151 233 6142 (mobile: 07919 598471) or

Closing date for entries is Friday, February 24, 2006.
