Worcestershire Girls County Trials

Girls Trials for next season


Please can you email me nominations for the U14 & U16 Worcestershire County Schools girls side next season. This will be current Years 7, 8, 9 & 10 pupils.  The trial format still needs to be confirmed but it will likely take place during May half term. The trial will be used to select a group of 16ish pupils for each age group who will represent the county for 2013-14. Please note that the majority of county sides we play have a number of centre of excellence players, therefore if you have pupils who play at this level please ensure that they are aware of the trials. The standard of play at county level will be the strongest club level players combined with girls who play centre of excellence football.  Girls who are in school years 8 & 9 will have the chance next season to be nominated for England Schools trials. In recent years we have had Rebecca Lloyd (Chantry) represent England. On a number of occasions girls who may have been in with a chance of making the England squad have missed out on this opportunity due to not being nominated for county trials and only finding out that there was a county team through club team mates half way through the season.  I am still in the planning stages but would like to take the county side to the US next year to put them on the radar of college coaches. A number of our pupils are more than capable of gaining college scholarships and for those who represent the county, hopefully we will be able to offer this opportunity to showcase their talents.  Please can teachers send me the following for each pupil that they wish to nominate Name Position Year group 2013/14 Club/Centre of Excellence  If I can have this information by Monday 6th May at the very latest this will enable me to plan appropriately. I will then send you a trial letter than includes all relevant information that can be passed onto each pupil nominated for county trials.  If any members of staff would like to help support me and Jenny Russell (Stourport) with the trial process and or a county representative side for next season all support offered would be appreciated.
