22 Sep An ‘Eze’ Wish come true for aspiring footballer
A budding young footballer from Halesowen was treated to a coaching day to remember after meeting her sporting heroes, thanks to Birmingham City Ladies FC (BCLFC) main shirt sponsors, Eze Group.
Isobel Roper, aged seven, from Halesowen, was invited to watch her favourite team train at Tudor Grange Leisure Centre in Solihull before receiving an exclusive coaching session following a nomination from her mum, Holly, as part of Eze Group’s Eze Wishes initiative.
The youngster was nominated for her keen interest and talent shown in football from a young age.
Holly said: “Isobel started playing the sport a few years ago for a boys’ team, but in more recent times joined Rowley Wildcats under nine girls. She’s football mad!
“I can’t begin to thank Eze Group enough, Isobel had a fabulous day. Now she can’t wait to watch her favourite team play at their next home game.”
Isobel also received a signed ball, enjoyed a question and answer session with the Blues Ladies players, and tickets for her and her Rowley Wildcats team to watch Blues play Liverpool Ladies FC on Sunday (25 September).
Isobel said: “I had an amazing day, and meeting all the players was a dream come true. The signed football was such a surprise, and I’ll treasure it forever!.”
The Eze Wishes campaign is an Eze Group and BCLFC initiative designed to recognise and reward those Blues Ladies fans who have overcome adversity, shown tremendous community spirit or demonstrated outstanding support for the club and sport.
Eze Group CEO Dominic O’Reilly said: “We’re delighted that Isobel enjoyed her Eze Wish experience. We’re keen to reach out to those who show a real passion and commitment to sport, which is why we simply couldn’t refuse Holly’s nomination.
“We hope Isobel carries on her love for football for many years to come, and took home some great memories from her day with the Blues Ladies.”
