Lionesses Fan Tess To Feature On BBC Breakfast

Ultimate Football Coaching Academy were delighted to be joined by Lionesses supporter Tess during this week's Summer Camp.

Tess is a regular at UFCA Holiday Camps - and a passionate Lionesses fan who went viral last week as she was captured celebrating England's semi-final triumph over Sweden.

The eight-year old was then featured on a number of BBC programmes - and interviewed by the likes of Gabby Logan and Ian Wright as she spoke with excitement about her love for the Lionesses.

She was rewarded with complimentary tickets to the Women's EURO's Final on Sunday - and witnessed the Lionesses lift the trophy following a spirited victory over Germany.

Just hours after watching the full-time celebrations at Wembley Stadium, Tess boarded a train back to West Yorkshire and attended the UFCA Summer Camp on Monday and Tuesday.

We were thrilled to be joined by BBC cameras at the UFCA Holiday Camp - who were filming a documentary about Tess and the impact the Lionesses have had on young female footballers.

The feature will air on BBC Breakfast on Friday morning - and will include an interview with UFCA Academy Manager Simon Armstrong, who outlined our plans for developing girls' football in the future.

We caught up with Tess about her trip to Wembley, and how the recent success of the Lionesses have inspired her both on and off the pitch.
