Following the loss of their FA Girls Centre of Excellence licence, the summer brought much uncertainty about the future of girls football at Watford Football Club.
Thanks to the support of Watford FC owner Lawrence Bassini and much hard work from the Community Sports & Education Trust, the Hornets were able to launch their new Girls' Centre for Football Excellence.
The new programme continues to offer talented female footballers the opportunity to train with UEFA qualified coaches twice per week at excellent facilities, whilst playing games against highly competitive opposition.
Linking in with Reading, Coventry City and Northampton Town, in August they launched the Female Development Programme, with a friendly fixture programme for Under-11s, 13s, 15s and 17s. The programme incorporates Tottenham, QPR and Charlton Athletic - and they have also enjoyed fixtures against Swindon Town and Southampton.
Sixty five talented footballers from across Hertfordshire were selected following trials and six of the Under-17s have already progressed onto representing Watford Ladies reserves.
The club is also delighted to have had four of their players attending the England Schools Under-15 trials and they are hoping that they will emulate the achievement of Shayla Burgess, who made her England Schools Under-15 debut last season whilst playing for Watford's Under-14 side.
