We bring you the latest on this summer’s Girls Centre of Excellence Trials

The trial process for our Girls Centre of Excellence is now completed and after seeing over a hundred girls from all across the South East decisions have been made for the 2013-14 Squads.

We held two Open Trials at the start of June and after the second session the first cut was made and successful candidates were then invited back to attend our Invite Only trials last weekend.

Before the final trials began new Technical Director Darren Hare introduced himself and reminded the girls what they were playing for, to grab the opportunity with both hands and most importantly enjoy it.

The girls then separated in to their respective age groups and set about the task in hand to secure a place at the Centre. The quality of players was very strong with an overall improvement seen from last season, which is testament to all the hard work put in by coaches and Junior Clubs in the South East, but this of course makes the final decisions extremely difficult.

Darren commented “The standard was very high, some tough decisions had to be made by the coaches and there will unfortunately be some disappointed players.”

Looking to next season Hare added “This is obviously my first season at the Girls Centre of Excellence and I’m very excited by the quality of player that has been selected and is already at the Centre.”

“I look forward to working with all the players, we’ve got a great coaching team and we are all eager to get the new season underway and help the players achieve their ultimate dream of playing International Football.”

We would like to thank all the players and parents who attend our trials, some coming from afar afield as Essex, Surrey and Sussex.

To those who have been selected to join our Centre, welcome and we look forward to working with you this season and to those who were unsuccessful this time around, keep working hard and we look forward to seeing you at future trials.
