A little girl with a boy’s name,
who has a big love for the beautiful game.
Football Freddie tells the story of Freddie Farren, a little girl in a modern-day Yorkshire town. Freddie loves football and supports her local lower-tier team, but won’t ask to join in the game in the park for fear the bigger children will laugh. Out of a magical moment steps Freddie’s Great-Great-Great Uncle Fred, a footballer from the olden days. With Fred’s encouragement and stories of glories past, Freddie renews her confidence and the crowd once more sing the name Fred Farren.
Football Freddie is part of Fidget Theatre’s online storytelling series Fidget Stories, suitable for children aged 3-7 and their families.
