Female Premier League players of the future have the chance to join Charlton Athletic's centre of excellence and academy when a series of trials are held later this month.
The Addicks are actively recruiting for new players for the 2008-09 season, and girls will come under the watchful eye of ex-Charlton winger Paul Mortimer, now technical director of the women's set-up.
"The strength in depth in the first team is extremely impressive, and the opportunities for academy players on and off the pitch are fantastic," explained Paul.
"We offer an advanced apprentice programme, run in conjunction with the Premier League and in partnership with London Leisure College, that is the only one in the country, and also have a range of academic opportunities at Canterbury High School, with numerous courses such as A-levels available."
Trials for the girls' centre of excellence will take place on Friday, February 15th and Saturday, February 16th - and more details on times for certain age groups are available from Tina Johnson on (020) 8850 2866.
To pursue an academy place, trials will take place on Saturday, February 16th, with academic presentations by London Leisure College and Canterbury High School. Again, for more information, or to register a place, call (020) 8850 2866.
All trials will take place on the Barclays Spaces for Sport FieldTurf pitch at Charlton's Sparrows Lane training ground in New Eltham, and will be overseen by Mortimer.
London Leisure College have their open evening on Wednesday, February 27th from 5-8pm at the new Eltham Leisure Centre, and players who are aged 16-plus and are interested in being involved in the Charlton academy are more than welcome to attend to look at academic opportunities.
More details on all of the opportunities within the women's set up at Charlton are available on (020) 8850 2866.
