Devon FA Girls Emerging Talent Centre

Following the FA review into the national structure of the Girls’ Talent Pathway, we are delighted to officially confirm our successful transition from the previous Girls’ Advanced Coaching Centre model to the new Girls’ Emerging Talent Centre model. The changes will allow us to do even more with a programme we are already very proud of. We will continue to run age groups at u12, u14 and u16 and having completed our summer trials earlier this month we are very excited to get going for the season ahead. Further opportunities for talent ID and recruitment will take place during the season.

Across the Country, The FA are vastly increasing the number of Licensed Centres to give better access opportunities for talented young girls. This will include a new Centre in the County with Argyle Community Trust gaining an FA License to run a Girls’ Emerging Talent Centre at u10, u11 and u12 age groups. There is also additional reviews taking place to hopefully impact on other, hard to reach areas of Devon with further information on this to follow in due course.

We are excited about the additional opportunities available to girls in the County and surrounding areas and hope to continue building on the excellent work everyone in Devon has been doing for some time now in the female game.
