BURTON Albion Community Trust is inviting girls who are leaving school in 2013 the opportunity to take part in a fun football session at St Georges Park.

The coaching session will take place in the futsal hall and will give potential students the opportunity to take part in a coaching session led by the Girls Football and Education lead coach Scott Taylor.

There will also be the opportunity for parents and students to find out more about the programme.

The football development scheme is a two year full time course which allows students the prospect to study sport in a theoretical and practical aspect. The course also creates the pathway for students to be able to progress onto higher education degree/diploma or enter employment, in areas such as sports coaching and sports development.

Students will also train two days a week and play against other colleges and professional teams representing Burton Albion Community Trust on Wednesday afternoons. Students on this programme are permitted to play for other local clubs on a weekend.

Andy Taylor, community manager, said: “After an initial information evening with the PFA (Professional Footballers’ Association), Burton and South Derbyshire College and a number of interested girls we would like to give any interested girls an opportunity to find out more about the programme before deciding their route for next year.”

The session will be held on Wednesday, March 6, from 5.30pm to 6.30pm.

Further information is available by emailing Scott Taylor on bact2@burtonalbionfc.co.uk or phoning 07967 850520.
