Chester FC Girls’ Emerging Talent Centre trial information 2023/24

June 29, 2023 Jim Green

We are delighted to announce 2023/24 trial dates for our Chester FC Girls’ Emerging Talent Centre (ETC) and invite talented young female players to apply!

The ETC provides a high-quality environment for future potential players, with a holistic approach to player development with training and games programmes, strength and condition, physiotherapist, nutritional advice, and health and wellbeing support.

Chester FC Community Trust was awarded a three-year licence from The FA last summer and the programme has enjoyed a fantastic first 12 months, with a number of players receiving regional call-ups or progressing to Women’s Super League clubs such as Everton, Liverpool and Manchester United.

For the 2023/24 season, we will be operating three dual age band groups at U10s, U12s and U14s. The ETC is based at King George V Community Sports Hub on Monday evenings and will offer:

• 1.5 hours contact time per week
• 30 weeks of training from September to June
• Free training kit
• Centralised 3G venue
• Access to physiotherapist, goalkeeper coach and strength and conditioning
• Games programme
• Players continue to train and play for their grassroots club
• CPD opportunities for grassroots coaches

The ETC forms part of the Chester FC Women’s & Girls’ pathway, which also includes recreational sessions and our Under 18s, development and first teams.
