Here they will get the chance to play against Centres from around the Country.

Girls Under 10's
Cornwall FA are excited to also announce
the provisional introduction of an U10 age group that will sit alongside our
current girls Advanced Coaching Centre (ACC) offer of U12, U14 and U16.
The idea behind this will be to enhance our current offer whilst also continuing
to build and provide
a clear pathway for our talented players in Cornwall. We will be holding
trials for this provisional new U10 group and depending on the number and quality of players that
attend will then determine whether or not it is feasible to run the additional
age group at the required level for the 2018-19 season. As with both our
boys and girls pathways these opportunities are meant to work in partnership with
our local football clubs and family.
Trials for the U10's will take place on Thursday 19th July from 6.30-7.30pm at Brannel School (Indoors- please wear trainers)
Any player wishing to attend will need a parent/ coach to complete the nomination form below and return as per instructions.
