Development Days 2018

2018 Development Days

Derby County Ladies are pleased to announce our Development Days for the 2018/19 season to be held at Broomfield College across three days in June/July.

After the unprecedented success of last year’s trials that saw over 200 players attend and with the recent success of the school’s festival that saw over 600 young girls take part, Academy Director Dave Cholerton is excited for the future of the Academy.

“We are really looking forward to our Development Days. Last year we had record numbers and on the back of this year’s Primary Festivals, we are hoping to surpass last years attendance.

“We are already planning for next season and with the support of our parents, we are confident of developing every player who represents our club.

“We are forming good relationships with partner female clubs as we are looking to identify the right opportunity for every girl who attends our Development Days to play regular football for a team in Derbyshire.

“With the exciting news of our enhanced relationship with Derby County and on the back of that, a bid for the new FA Women’s Championship, we are planning a clear pathway for youngsters in our Academy to progress to the very top.

“The chance to play for Derby County Ladies has never been more exciting and we hope to see as many girls as possible come down and take part over three fantastic days in front of our excellent coaches.”
