My nine-year-old daughter was keen to play football for a team and we naturally contacted the local FA representative. He refused to speak to my husband on the telephone, and was heard to say, 'What's it got to do with me?'.
I wish Sophie Cox and all young girls who enjoy any sport luck in the future. Perhaps their daughters will benefit from their fighting now, but I wonder how many other young girls are put off sport by the unnecessary attitudes they come up against?
