Bend it Like Beckham DVD?

Guess you need to know the team she supports but most teams have mail order catalogues (usually on-line) and these days you can get really nice sportswear and t-shirts tailored for girls and women, as well as things like pencil cases. If you want to be very 'British' then I think you really need to buy a scarf.

FA website shop .

England baseball cap maybe?

Or, as it's New England and they have cold winters, you could get her a woolly hat and scarf?

Janh Thu 03-Mar-05 22:50:36

Oh - they haven't got any woolly hats and scarves!

How old is she?

sophia, you were up late!

so jd sports doens't do football strips evidently...anywhere else do them?

Janh Sat 05-Mar-05 11:58:03

JD don't do strips????

allsports (have to put them first cos DH works for them), JJB, Sports Soccer - of those I would choose Sports Soccer, one of their big edge-of-town stores, they have thousands of things and tend to be a bit cheaper too.

thanks janh...just the advice i needed!

jampots Sat 05-Mar-05 15:16:15

Agree that getting the real/official gear is much cooler
