Pride Park FC is launching another exciting competition to find the club’s best junior reporters.

To enter, participants need to submit no more than five questions they would like to ask one of our first team players - as if they were interviewing them for the Impetus Womens' Football site, Radio Derby, Derby Evening Telegraph, a magazine such as She Kicks, the BBC’s “Women’s Football Show”, Sky Sports’ “Inside the WSL” or similar.

Additionally, participants must include a question to be used as a tie breaker in the event of a tie. The tie-breaker question must relate to this summer’s Women’s World Cup, and entrants must say which Lioness they would put the question to, if they had the chance - and why.

Watching the BBC or Sky Sports’ Women’s Football Shows will provide ideas, and there are also ideas in interviews on the Impetus Football website and She Kicks website. The questions should aim to be ‘original, interesting, funny and/or totally random.’

The winners will receive one year’s subscription to She Kicks magazine, the chance to put their questions to one of our first team players and to see their interviews published on our website, on the Impetus Football blog and by She Kicks magazine.

An expert football panel, including Impetus’ editor Ben Gilby, Jen O’Neill the Editor of She Kicks Magazine and Faye Hackwell, freelance journalist and blog writer for Her Game Too - will choose the overall winner in each of four age categories:

  1. up to u8
  2. u9/u10
  3. u11/u12
  4. u16

The closing date to enter the competition is midnight on 31st May 2023.

We will be publishing a few hints and tips next week to help give you some ideas for your questions in the next few days, so keep an eye out for that!

How to enter
Simply send us your questions to (no more than 5, plus the tie breaker question) with your (participant’s) name, date of birth, parent/carer’s name and their contact phone number and e-mail address.
Entries must be received by 31st May.
