would like to see more England DNA in the girls game as can be found in the boys, the ones with most ingurland players play physical route one alot of the time .
I understand that 3 academy players can play  up for their WSL side but can WSL1 squad members play down?

I know the RTC system is favoured by most on here but the same money going into organising and supporting  grassroots leagues you could have a decent level of football closer to all players.   Yes as it is the standard is not always high but largely because the FA has pretty much left volunteer leagues to get on with it.

You don't need paid uefa A and B coaches especially at the younger ages you need good level 1 & 2 coaches who are committed to their players, too often people now are taking badges to advance their own coaching prospects not to advance their players.  Yes there are some great coaches at RTCs but there are some shockers too just as in grassroots.   

These days anyone with football knowledge and the interpersonal skills should be able to decide on a philosophy and find tons of resources online, books etc on how to coach towards that.

As far as I understand it the local FA doesn't have to be involved with running an RTC.  A local club such as Scunthorpe United for example could apply to the FA for an RTC Licence Tier 1,2 or 3 and then put together a financial plan with costings to support their bid. The club would have to make a financial commitment of up to £24k a year dependent on Tier level and then the FA would give them up to £60k a year to run it. They are also allowed to charge parents up to, but not exceeding £200 per year in fees. So all depends on who applies, which bids the FA likes and thinks are viable and which way the wind is blowing as to who gets the licence. Sparsely populated areas like Somerset area get a regional based more flexible support. Where as the likes of Greater London get more coverage. I do believe Manchester FA do hold a licence and they got Man U to run it for them for the last few years, but I am happy to be corrected on that.

Here's my report from today's Women's National League clash between Sunderland Ladies and Stoke City Ladies where goals from Amy Hughes, Ashleigh Hayes and Emily Owen helped Stoke to a 2-3 win.

Nothing around hull for about 40 miles

Is the rtc system geographically wrong ?

And don’t know how true it is but had a conversation with somebody who said the local fa can sometimes work against having an rtc in case it effects the local leagues too much, I asked my local fa if there’s any plans for an rtc in our city but got ignored

It is going to very interesting to see what the FA has planned.

As part of the tendering process all the Tier 1 and Tier 2 women's clubs have to implement younger age group grassroots Development Teams to bring through young girls.

Some clubs may have already had an RTC and Development Teams in place, others have set them up Development Teams independently.
Each area will obviously be different but you may find they don't need to fund so many RTC's as they do currently, some areas may be well provisioned without the need for an RTC.

They of course were originally setup to give elite girls the enhanced coaching they needed but now a lot of the Development teams have UEFA B coaches and are overseen by UEFA A Coaches. The Women's Clubs want to expand their grassroots participation and hopefully going forwards help to build a fan base for the Women's teams.

I'm sure the FA have take a long hard look at all the systems in place and the large amounts of money they allocate every year.
The FA could carry on as is or decide to reallocate the funding. I'm excited and nervous to see which way they go with it!
