Matilda and Sydney FC star Heather Garriock came down to King George Park to check out the talent at Leichhardt Saints inaugural Women and Girls Gala Day, 28 July 2012.
All ten women’s and girl’s teams were represented on a beautiful sunny day down by the water.
The afternoon of soccer skills was followed by inspiring words from Heather, autograph signings, organic juice and pizza.
Heather was really pleased to see over 70 girls running around with a ball because when she was a kid she felt like the only girl playing soccer.
Heather is expecting a baby in September, then she is back to training towards her goal of representing Australia at the 2016 Olympics in Rio.
Leichhardt Saints girls, what’s your football goal?
