Young females in Bournemouth will now be given greater opportunities through the FA England women’s talent pathway.
The AFC Bournemouth Community Sports Trust is delighted to announce their involvement in the scheme, which has recently been expanded.
The talent inclusion programme ensures that, through existing community activities, female participants can be identified and referred to the FA’s women’s talent pathway.
For girls showing potential, the programme creates a pathway from community to full England honours, with an educated workforce that identifies and supports potential.
Alongside 33 other EFL clubs, the Community Sport Trust will be supported by an education and learning programme managed by the EFL Trust and supported by The FA.
Following the announcement, head of community Steve Cuss spoke with afcb.co.uk.
“We are delighted to be part of the female talent inclusion programme,” he began.
“It is important that there are clear pathways for players to reach their potential and this programme further supports the projects we have in place.”
FA women’s talent pathway operations manager, Alexis Lunn-Gadd also commented: “Our partnership with the EFL Trust contributes hugely to our ongoing work to develop and deliver an accessible and inclusive talent pathway.
“We are delighted that the programme has expanded to 34 Clubs. We cannot underestimate the impact of the bespoke work the CCO’s will be delivering within their communities and how that will undoubtedly help unearth potential hidden talent.”
