Girls Development Centre


The Colchester United Female Development Centre is an invitation-only development programme for talented girls from U7s to U16s age groups. 

The Centre aims to nurture and retain advanced players, whilst offering appropriate progression pathways and exit routes for players through working in partnership with the Essex FA Regional Talent Club.

Development Centre coaches will demand a high standard in training and matches and players should come open-minded to training and be prepared to be tested week-in-week-out, technically, physically and also mentally. 

Players are assessed by the coaches in their weekly training sessions and also have the opportunity to participate in fixtures against other professional football clubs such as Norwich City, Peterborough United and Cambridge United. 

The Development Centre is designed to provide extra training to advanced players and does not interfere with their current Grassroots team.

If you think you have what it takes to become part of our Centre then get in contact at to arrange a trial.
