We would like to say a big thank you to the team for pulling together the FA's Girls' Emerging Talent Centre Application with our partners. The quality of the application was impressive and the supporting statement from the county FA was reinforcing.

Commencing in September for the 2022/23 season on FA approval, the Emerging Talent Centre will be for players, aged 10 to 15, who have been identified with ‘emerging talent’ from either our Elite Academy Programme or at one of our Open Trials.

Players will be invited for weekly sessions focused on developing their game through the application of our enhanced player development framework. Players in the Emerging Talent Centre must either take part in a different sport regularly or play for a football club in addition to attending the ETC.

Applications for the Emerging Talent Centre will be launched in July, More information will be publised via the club communication portal and on social media towards the end of July.
