Daisie discovering love for football through the Tigers Trust
Posted on 22nd September 2022 at 16:21
Daisie Rimmer has been an attendee of the Tigers Trust's Premier League Kicks sessions for over 10 months now.
Daisie, 8, is an everpresent at the sessions and attends each week with a beaming smile on her face.
Having first attended on her own, she has since made many new friends through the programme and staff have noticed huge improvements to her confidence levels.
Daisie has built a great rapport with Tigers Trust staff and has been awarded Girl of the Week on many occasions for her teamwork skills.
Speaking about the sessions, Daisie said: "The sessions are really fun, and the coaches are really nice.
"I have learnt not to be scared of tackling girls that are bigger than me, and I have also made new friends outside of my team."
Her Dad, David, says that he has seen growth in Daisie's footballing ability and fitness since starting the Premier League Kicks sessions.
He said: "Daisie's defensive ability has improved so much during these sessions.
"When she joined, she had just turned 8 so was the youngest there for a while.
"This meant she had to get stuck in against the older girls and not be scared to tackle. She is encouraged to play the ball out from the back, instead of just kicking it up field."
Daisie's overall passion for the beautiful game has grown immensley across the past year; she has become a huge Hull City Ladies fan, cheering on the team both home and away.
Daisie has also had the opportunity to cheer on Hull City when she, and other girls from the Premier League Kicks session, were gifted tickets to watch the Tigers as part of International Women's Week in March.
In this short space of time, she has attended over 30 sessions and played an integral part in the Boot Room initiative that the Tigers Trust launched in April as part of EFL Week of Action.
It has been brilliant to be a part in Daisie's football journey so far, and hopefully this can continue for years to come!
