Girls Centre of Excellence looking to recruit new players
Millwall Lionesses Girls Centre of Excellence are offering a fantastic opportunity for budding young players ranging from U9s to U17s in this year's trials.
The Lionesses play in the London South East region and successful players will have the opportunity to play against WSL and Premier league opposition such as Arsenal, Chelsea, Brighton and Gillingham.
Players selected will receive sports science, medical and video analysis support through the age groups, along with first class coaching processes in a progressive and supportive environment.
Millwall Lionesses has a proud history and tradition within the women’s game and was the first Girls Centre of Excellence, which has laid down the blueprint for how all other centres have been run up to now. The Lionesses are also one of only 18 teams in the Women's Super-Leagues, producing a steady stream of international players such as Hope Powell, Katie Chapman, and more recently, Grace Fisk for England U17s.
