Women’s football is a world away from where it was when Alex Scott was eight years old. Her ability quickly made her stand out and she was spotted by a referee, a friend of then-Arsenal Ladies boss Vic Akers, at a small-sided tournament and advised to try out for the Gunners. Almost 24 years and countless honours later, Scott is now the second most-capped England player of all-time, behind only Lionesses and Arsenal team-mate Fara Williams. But with 2016's second edition of FA Girls’ Football Week attracting record registrations , Scott believes she was simply fortunate to have been noticed by that referee and is delighted that female players today have more opportunities than ever... She said: “I started out by playing with the boys from my area, as most girls my age probably did. “It just shows how far we’ve come that there are now so many opportunities for girls to get involved and play alongside other girls – and Girls’ Football Week does exactly that. “But I still enjoyed the process that I went through and the fact I played a small part in helping football get to where it is now. Girls’ Football Week runs from Monday 10 October until Sunday 16 October and is focused on encouraging further education institutions to put on football sessions for girls. And Scott, who captained Arsenal to SSE Women’s FA Cup glory at Wembley Stadium in May , has encouraged every young player to get involved, whatever their ability level. She added: “There are so many girls’ clubs out there now that you can just contact your local club and find out if they’re holding trials or even if you can just go along and see what it’s like. “The great thing about football is that you can go along to your local club, have a kickabout, gain confidence and, most importantly, it’s a great way to make new friends. “I’ve made some lifelong friends through football and that is one of the best things the game has given me. “But girls now realise that they can make a career out of football if they want to, whereas that was just a dream for me when I started. “So I’d say that if you like football, or are interested in taking it up, why not start during Girls’ Football Week.
