Making your dreams come true

THE Football Association (FA) wants to help some young fans’ dreams come true.

Whether it’s owning an ice cream van like England legend Fara Williams, becoming a firefighter like goalkeeper Carly Telford, or riding a motorbike like midfielder Jill Scott, the Women’s FA wants to hear your hopes and aspirations as part of its Make Dreams Goals competition.

Grace Cole was one of last year’s winners and she received VIP treatment at the SSE Women’s FA Cup Final at Wembley.

Her mum, Leanne, said: “The whole day was an amazing experience from start to finish.

Make Dreams Goals is aimed at 7 to 15 year olds and there are four ways to submit your dream:
