Derby County Ladies Football Club

Academy Report with Dave Cholerton

Earlier today we launched our new Spirit of the Club Award and as an Operational Board, we have talked for a number of months about how we could recognise those within our club who epitomise the spirit that we want to encourage here at Derby County Ladies.

Whilst we can only have one winner, we will be ensuring that those that are nominated are known throughout the club for all their help and support and thank them for their commitment to our club showing that we truly are #OneClub

This award is open to the whole of the club but as Academy Director, I know that their are many great ambassadors for our club and I’m looking forward to seeing a good selection of Academy representatives when we come to choose the winner.

We encourage players, coaches and parents to nominate anyone that they feel has made a great contribution to the club, just send your nominations and why your nominating to

Meanwhile on the field it was another fantastic weekend for the Academy with the majority of our sides winning their games and despite all the upheaval with the weather, it shows the focus that the teams are developing which is a key component that we are trying to learn.

It is frustrating to see that games in the Derbyshire Girls League have already been called off this weekend but safety is paramount for everyone and we fully back the move to give early clarity to the weekend. We always want to play but it seems to be one of those season’s weather wise.

It looks like our 1st Team game with Sheffield WFC will take place on Sunday and we encourage our girls to get their Derby County Ladies fix by coming along to the match and hopefully supporting them to another win. Please note that the game is being played at Etwall Leisure centre and is free entry to all.

Please ensure if you are travelling that you keep an eye out on our Facebook and Twitter pages in case of any postponements. Follow @DerbycountyLFC on Twitter and search Derby County Ladies on Facebook.
