The deadline to register for trials for Southampton Football Club's new under-21 women’s team is fast approaching.

Following on from the success of the club’s girls’ programme through The FA’s Tier 1 Regional Talent Club over the past year, Saints were proud to announce earlier this month that a women’s development side will be formed for the 2017/18 season. 

Initially, this team will consist solely of players aged 16 to 21, with registrations being invited for those who wish to be considered for trials.

Prospective players have until 9am on Friday 26th May to register.

Southampton Football Club is committed to offering a sustainable female player pathway, through a high-quality training programme with a multi-disciplinary approach, alongside a varied games programme.

The Regional Talent Club has already seen notable success this season, with ten Southampton players achieving international selection, underlining the ethos of helping to turn potential into excellence at all levels of the game.

Head of Women’s and Girls’ Football Martina Heath said: "We will be hosting the trials at the club’s training ground, so those players who are coming into us and might be new to us can see what's available to them and what a great club we've got here."

Players participating in the trials, at Staplewood Campus, must be born between 1st September 1996 and 31st August 2001.
