Exeter City Football in the Community launch a new Girls Football Development Centre in partnership with Exeter City Ladies Football Club.
The Development Centre aims to provide an additional provision for talented individuals, in Exeter and across the South West, to pursue in conjunction with their local teams and progress through the female player pathway.
Working in partnership with Exeter City Ladies Football Club, who currently play in the FA Women’s Premier League South West Division, the centre aims to provide an exciting opportunity locally and bridge the gap between grassroots football,with opportunities for Girls from the Under 12 - Under 16 age groups.
Following the initial Open Trial Session which took place on Thursday 30th March 2017 at the new 3G development at Cliff Hill Training Ground successful players have been invited to join our initital pilot scheme which will run weekly from 20th April to late June 2017 and create a platform to test logistics and gain feedback moving forward to the 2017/18 season from September onwards.
Donna Langdon, Women and Girls Development Coordinator at Exeter City Football in Community said, ‘We recognise the outstanding work of local youth clubs, and aim for the centre to support and expand upon their hard work. The centre provides an excellent opportunity to further develop players, and aid the number of girls transitioning through to regular engagement within women’s football.’
