Girl's Centres of Excellence / Re: County Squads and RTC's
« Last post by andydinger on November 18, 2017, 10:40:26 AM »
Just FYI, I was talking to an England scout at a recent RTC game and he was bemoaning the fact that they didn't have the time or resources to get to more games outside the RTC pathway. They are mostly volunteers who get paid expenses for a limited number of games so obviously they have to prioritise the games where there is the most potential talent on display. They do sometimes get to the latter rounds of the ESFA county cups and occasionally a schools final or 2 but they are completely unable to follow up on a tip-off about some single individual at a grassroots club. The only way to be sure of putting yourself in the frame is to play in those games that have several girls who could be good enough. I'm sure we'd all like The FA to spend lots more money sending people all over the country to look at "missed individuals" but realistically they invest this money in the RTCs and hope that they are far-sighted enough to attract the local talent themselves.

Durham had a stack of chances early on. Just couldn't find the back of the net.

It was really freezing, 4C. Enjoyable game, both teams should have scored at least twice.

London Bees and Yeovil have applied for Tier 1  as expected.
Seems a bit over the top - can't see it happening except maybe with the likes of your Man Citys who might have money for the odd exceptional talent - maybe they should give grassroots clubs money for every player they lose to an rtc - as perhaps should the boys academies.

Watford have announced they wont bid so that's one less.   Sunderland will probably bid as part of some new entity possibly in partnership with a university and go for second tier.  Derby have said they are interested but there has been nothing in the local media.   I half expected to FA to u-turn and allow existing WSL clubs to remain part time at least for a period of a couple of years but if Sunderland have effectively moved on I guess that is less likely now.

Well they wont get me in at £10 a go or dictate when i buy my ticket-
I was told the FA is looking at installing the same fee system in girls football than in the boys academy system.
Considering what a mess it is in boys football, why does the FA want to copy the model and import it to girls's football
