This exciting new venture will add to the existing programme run for our male youth teams and will involve a training programme, an exciting games programme – running parallel to our outstanding education provision run through partners SCL and Loughborough College.
Of the development, Head of Football, Ray Power, said: “This is something I am really excited about. We have an opportunity to build a programme from the ground up. It is our intent – from the very beginning – to source, train, educate and develop the very best female players within travelling distance from Boston, whilst continuing their education. Up until now, top level teenage players would have to travel for high-level training and games at big clubs. Now they won’t have to”.
