Regional Talent Club to hold summer trials

27 May 2016

Blackburn Rovers’ renowned Regional Talent Club is on the look out for football’s female stars of the future.

The club is holding open trials for girls aged 8-16 at Darwen Aldridge Community Academy throughout June.

The Blackburn Rovers Regional Talent Club (formerly Girls Centre of Excellence) is considered to be one of the best performing and producing centres in the country.

We are consistently providing the players the opportunity to be nationally recognised to compete on the world stage with England.
  • U17’s FA Youth Cup National runners-up 12/13 Season, semi finalists 13/14 season, quarter finalists 14/15 & 15/16 season.
  • Barcelona Tour 12/13 (Playing Espanyol and Barcelona) & Dallas Cup, Texas, USA 13/14 & 15/16 (U17’s Finalists & Semi-Finalists)
  • National Performance Centre Attendees 15/16
  • 2 x U17s England internationals, 1 x U16s England international and 1 x U15s England international produced during 15/16 season.
  • 100% exiting players at U17s go on to represent FAWPL clubs or WSL 1/2 clubs. For example Keira Walsh & Georgia Stanway (Manchester City), Rhiannon Roberts (Doncaster Rovers Belles).
With highly qualified and experienced coaches, all players are challenged technically, tactically, physically, psychologically and socially throughout the season. In addition educational and sports science support from the centre is designed to help every player reach their footballing potential.

In collaboration with Lancashire FA we are the only Regional Talent Club serving the North West and the only club with a track record of producing players for England squads.
