Train Like a Lioness
Somerset FA, in partnership with England Football, is hosting a ‘Train like a Lioness’ Event in Glastonbury at Strode College Sports Centre on Wednesday the 24th of May 2023.
We need the help of clubs to identify female players playing within their mixed teams (from U9s up to U14s) who would like to attend our event, to have the potential to be selected to be part of the Female England Talent Pathway. This pathway doesn’t take players away from their grassroots clubs, it only compliments their grassroots football and offers them even more opportunities to progress and develop, with the ultimate goal to one day represent England!
An England football statistic for the South West, is that 100% of players playing within the England pathway (youth and Seniors) STARTED in mixed football. Somerset is one of the largest counties for females playing in mixed football so we know there are many female players accessing great football opportunities within mixed teams however we don’t necessarily know them all – this is a great chance to find these players and work with them!
