Stevenage FC Women have today announced the first step in their preparation for the 2020/21 season...
Whilst a lot of information about what next season may look like for many clubs, the Women's team are inviting interested players to register their interest for the trial process, that will commence once it is deemed safe to do so by Government and The FA.
Prospective players can register their interest for either the First Team or Development Squad depending on their experience and playing history.
The First Team has had a very similar season to their 2018-19 campaign with a mixture of results in the league that saw them finish towards the lower half of the table. However, another fantastic cup run saw them reach the Hertfordshire FA Women's Cup Final for the sixth straight season.
The Development Squad or "Devs" had a positive season, lying in 3rd position when the season was brought to an end. A blistering start was hampered by some injuries to key players but week in week out the squad were involved in highly competitive games and will be looking to make a similarly bright start next season.
First Team Manager Mark Dicker said, "It's been a really tough time for everyone and we've seen some amazing stories of our own players working tirelessly on the front line for the NHS and other services in recent weeks. The break from football has given us all some time to reflect and plan for whenever the game resumes and we're looking forward to getting back out there in the first instance to have a look at those players wanting to be apart of our squads going forward."
Club Secretary and "Devs" Manager Dave Potter said, "Of course football is not the priority at the moment but we want to give potential players and staff something to work towards and look forward to. There were a lot of good things planned at the tail end of last season, that weren't able to happen and we're hoping that from these trials we can add to our fantastic squad and kick on as a club."
If you would like to register your interest in trialling for Stevenage FC Women, then please complete the online Expression of Interest Form and once it is safe to do so, trials will be arranged and you'll be notified of the proposed dates.
Please note that the trials will take place at the Hertfordshire FA Community Football Centre in Letchworth, home of our First Team.
