Priory's top sporting girls had an unbelievable day at Edge Hill on Tuesday when they attended the university's Game Changer event.

This special event celebrated women in sport and brought together four trailblazing women for a very open panel discussion about their experiences, the current state of play and what they think the future holds for women in elite sport. 

The panellists included Dawn Airey (Chair of Women’s Super League and Channel 4), Zainab Alema (pioneering Black Muslim rugby player and activist), Sue Smith (England footballer and Sky Sports pundit) and Simone Magill (Northern Ireland footballer).  The event was chaired by BBC sports presenter, Giulia Bould.

All the girls had an opportunity to submit questions to the panel and Fatima's and Phoebe's were selected to be asked. 

PE teacher, Mrs Bullock, said: "What an inspiration these ladies are for our next generation of women in sport. Edge Hill's hospitality was fantastic and the whole event was an incredible experience for our girls."
