Community Day 2022 | Meet Gift


Bristol Rovers are ready to celebrate their annual Community Day, this Saturday (April 2nd). Throughout the week, we'll be highlighting some of our participants who have benefited from the various programmes that we deliver.


Without the support of our fans, we simply wouldn't be able to make the impact that we do in our community. If every fans brings 'A Pound to the Ground' this Saturday, it will make a huge difference to our participants.


We spoke to Gift Ihejieto from Bristol Rovers Women's FC, who reveals the difficulties she had playing football at a young age and becoming a part of the 'Gas Girls'

"When I was a couple of months old, my family moved to Bristol from Nigeria and I was based in Easton for most of my childhood.


When I was younger, I’d always watch football on TV and I loved watching players like Messi and Neymar. I’ve always wanted to play football, but I never had the opportunity apart from when I was in School. I never had a lot of access to Coaching either because the travelling would have been too much for me and my family.


Last summer I saw the advert for the ‘Gas Girls’ trials at Lockleaze Sports Centre on social media and I thought I’d give it a shot. I was thrilled when I got in!


I’ve always been a really shy person, especially around new people but the community and environment created at Bristol Rovers Women’s has definitely improved my confidence. I love what the club does on and off the pitch and I’m really happy to be a part of this family."

Never thought of it this way, but I also read the study from some London association, that music therapy is really good. So perhaps you can talk to these guys https://steinway.co.uk/pianos/c/grand-pianos and find a Steinway piano that will fit your daughter's needs and be comfortable for her. Another study that I read, says that Mozart's music has good vibration and is good for healing from stress.

My daughter wants to study the piano. She says that it gets her distracted. I fully support this idea for my daughter as a sort of stress release exercise. But my wife says we are just wasting our time. What would you guys say to this? Shall I guy a piano to her as a gift?

I really like the attention to women in sports that is being given to them now. it is more difficult for them to maintain their achievements due to their hormonal instability. I also want to say that a heavy training regimen is no reason not to date. I used one of the simple tricks when I was in college. I met guys online, you can link here. Such a site is suitable not only for online flirting but also for finding real dates. There is only one life and everything must be done. Good luck girls!
