Claire was part of England Lionesses Bronze medal campaign in the 2015 World Cup and is Chelsea's longest serving player.
Club Chairman, Clive Chivers, said "We were delighted Junior Reds Girls were recognised for our promotion of Girls football in the local area. The Girls were very excited by the appearance of Claire and this was a fine end to the first part of the season before the Christmas break. Claire joined in with he teams; was accessible and very interested in the work of the Club in
expanding Girls football".
Over 50 players from the Under 9s to new Under 15s were in attendance and had the opportunity to train with Claire and to ask questions.
