Great start for the girls.

Great start for the girls.

On Saturday the 25th NCF London launched their girls only development centre – NCF London Pearls. The centre is aimed at providing a fun, safe and informative environment for girls to attend and enjoy the beautiful game.   17 girls attended the free taster session. Head coach Nick Cook said ‘it was a great starting point. The girls showed a great attitude and plenty of skill. We had girls attending from 9 different schools and they mixed so well as a group. We hope to encourage more girls to the centre and provide a real football hub for young girls wishing to get involved in the game. We have recently had one of our girls Ellee signed by Arsenal ladies and we aim to provide a platform for more girls to maximise their potential’.   We have designed a fun programme that focuses on individual player development within a team environment. The programme consists of evasion games, speed and agility, ball manipulation and match play. As always with NCF the sessions are fast paced and maximise ball contact.   We will also be looking to provide fixtures for the girls to put into practice what they are learning.   If you have a daughter who would be interested in attending a ‘taster’ session, then feel free to contact us.
