Leeds have always tradionally been a strong set up and have a good reputation within girls football.

How are trials going elsewhere ? Heard there was approx 50 girls at leicesters under 16's trial but not sure of the standard.

Oxford Utd RTC dropping to tier 2, despite (or more likely, because of) the new funding program for the senior side.

Had about 40 girls at leeds yesterday for the under 12s trials

Thoroughly enjoyed it , some of the leeds players looked very good

Will be back there tomorrow

Daughter was asked her name and age during the trials not sure if should read anything into it

That's interesting. Do you know anything about the new funding for the senior side and does it apply to other clubs?

Wow, the Nottingham Post really needs the hate-clicks, eh...

"Alan Hardy reveals his exciting plans for women's football at Notts County"
www.nottinghampost.com


And then you read it and find out it's a girls' academy. Not an RTC, but this seems the best thread for it. (Notts Ladies sought RTC status from the FA, but didn't get it.)

Quote
Our academy will be starting at under-9s, 10s and 11s this year and we are following the Football Association's latest advice in that elite girls players should be playing in the boys' league.

We are going to be playing in the Young Elizabethan League (YEL) and the great thing about it, as opposed to the women's league, is that the YEL has 10 or 12 different levels in each age group.

Therefore the girls will find their natural level. We have some trial dates over the next two Wednesdays and we already have a core group of girls who want to join us and play for our academy.

Maybe this is the opposite of Oxford United? Taking money away from the women's team to help girls' football...

(More info on Hardy and Notts' Ladies closure in that thread.)

With Oxford changing to Tier 2, I wonder if they will replace them at Tier 1 level.......Chelsea? Or too obvious?

Replacing them with Chelsea would make sense or surely the only other possibility could be Aston Villa. Oxford may  also be left in the league if the FA decide as there might not be any takers for the remaining tier 1 status.

They have to replace or keep them in else it will be a five team league.

Even the FA aren't stupid enough to move one of the Northern Tier 1's to the South section !

Had a invite back for further trials for leeds shadow squad

Just curious does anybody know if at the under 12 age bracket or just in general do they tend to put the younger girls of the age bracket in the shadow squad then progress them to the academy once there in the older half of the age bracket the season after?

Usually a split between the two age groups but not always if players turn down the place and the club are forced to take more than one age group than another.

Looking at the NCFC message, are they ok to call themselves an Academy? I thought that wasn't allowed with grassroots teams? I recall some arguments some years ago about a grass roots club doing this and they were taken to task by their local FA? However more girls teams is always a good thing ...... but will it bring in more players or take those from other local teams? Again however, I like the notion of playing in the boys leagues it gives girls elite teams better competition and they develop differently playing boys imo .............

Wondering if anybody could help

Been invited back for shadow squad trials but before we go back, trying to get some information on how leeds shadow squad functions, anybody know

If they play competitve fixtures in the boys league the same as the rtc?
How many times a week they train?
If they tend to sign alot of girls on and rotate them or have a smaller squad where they all play regular?
Would players sign a contract and be unable to play grassroots the same as rtc players?

Finding its pretty hard getting replys to emails directly from the club, so any help or info recieved on here would greatly help

I believe that the Leeds United RTC train once a week and your grass roots commitments are not affected. I don't think that they play matches at all so the focus is on development at the coaching sessions. From speaking to others who have experience of the shadow squad, they do sometimes train with the main squad.

Cheers cobblers helps alot, not a fan of this lack of communication from them guessing they assume everybody knows how it all works. Would be nice them informing parents the ins and outs so we can decide if its suitable for our kids before we commit to travelling to trials etc

Starting to edge towards keeping her at grassroots
