Nottingham College is holding an open evening on Friday 3 November for young female footballers to find out more about its partnership with Nottingham Forest Ladies FC. The event will take place at the College’s Clifton Centre from 6.00pm - 8.00pm.
The programme aims to give talented young players aged 16-18 the chance to get regular training from Nottingham Forest coaches and competitive games in the Association of Colleges East Midlands Football league.
The partnership between the college and club is proving to be enormously successful and we have created a positive environment for players to combine study and football.Diane Garfield - Nottingham College Community & Performance Sport Manager
The importance for a club like Nottingham Forest Ladies FC to collaborate in a partnership within the local community cannot be overstated. To be able to work with outstanding local girls at the 16+ age group to develop them as players and contribute to their development as people is fantastic and an honour. All of the players involved currently within the college program have grown in confidence, stature and game understanding but most importantly of all, appreciate their role within a team environment and have lots of fun. I'm extremely proud to be the head coach of the college programme and it absolutely enhances the opportunities for all the girls involved to take steps towards playing in the red of Nottingham Forest Ladies FC.Graham Abercrombie - Nottingham College Head Coach
The event will consist of a parent and player information session about the college’s academic courses and information about the structured football training on offer followed by a football training session which will be delivered by Head Coach Graham Abercrombie.
