TWO of England’s top female football stars will be appearing at Grass Roots Football LIVE 2009 at the NEC next month.

Sue Smith and Casey Stoney will be appearing at the show on June 12/13 which covers all angles of grass roots football and is aimed at players, manager, coaches and referees at all levels.

The England stars will be there to help promote the women’s football development conference taking place in the talkSPORT theatre.

Seminars, coaching clinics, celebrity challenge matches, discussions and debates will be hosted by some of the biggest names in the game including former England manager Graham Taylor and current Stoke City boss Tony Pulis.

Bob Rosen, managing director of Grass Roots Football LIVE, said: “We are delighted to welcome two of England’s most famous female footballers to Grass Roots Football LIVE.

“The event gets bigger and bigger every year and I believe 2009 will be the best yet – we are covering some of the hottest topics in football.

“Legends of the game, including Sue and Casey, will be interacting with football fans all weekend giving – offering hints, tips and food for thought ahead of summer.”

Wycombe and former England under-21 boss Peter Taylor, former Watford manager Aidy Boothroyd, and ex-Leicester chief Ian Holloway will all be hosting coaching clinics.

And they will be joined by a list of ex-players including Chris Kamara, Paul Merson, Robbie Savage, Neville Southall, Steve Claridge, Don Goodman, and Tony Cottee.
