Are you a talented young female footballer?

3 August 2022

Are you a talented young female footballer who would like the opportunity to develop further within Colchester United's Emerging Talent Centre, and be a part of the FA’s England Talent Pathway?

Would you like to benefit from the following?

  • Weekly Training sessions with FA and UEFA qualified coaches
  • Match play opportunities against other top professional clubs
  • Access to a club physio, sports therapy clinics, educational workshops, and residential trip’s
  • Opportunities to progress into Colchester United Female Football and Education Programme and Women's Senior First Team

 If so, come along to the Open Trials!

The Colchester United Emerging Talent Centre aims to develop young female players (U8-U16) across the FA 4 corner development model (Technical/ tactical, physical, and social) as well as young women. Each session is delivered by qualified and experienced coaching staff who will work with individuals and the collective. Learning is centred towards focussing on football and personal development in line with the club’s and FA’s player development model. 

Players who are accepted into the Colchester United Emerging Talent Centre are still able to train and play for their grassroots clubs, alongside the opportunity to represent Colchester United FC in a comprehensive fixture programme.

Niamh Gamble, Women’s & Girls Development Officer @ Colchester United Football in the Community shared how the Emerging Talent Centre will help support the Colchester United Football in the Community Women’s team for the 2023/24 season: “We are delighted to re-introduce the Colchester United Football in the Community Women’s team into the Colchester United female football pathway. This is something the club has been missing for a while and with the introduction of the restructured Women’s and Girl’s pathway comes at the perfect time to get football available again to women and girls in our communities. With everything that has driven the female game forward with the Lioness’s fantastic achievement at the Euros this summer, we want to ensure we provide opportunities to all to represent Colchester United for many years to come.”

 “The Women’s team here at Colchester United Football in the Community will be the peak of the football pathway here, giving players in our Girls Development Centre, Emerging Talent Centre, and Female Education Programme the objective of representing the first team!
