Girls Player Development Centre Success


Previous Years Success


The PDC 2012/13 supported Girls in the age groups Under 9's,11's,13's and 15's. in essence girls from 7 to 14 years of age. The beauty of a PDC is that the player can remain at their club and play in a local league as well as receiving advanced training at the PDC.

The PDC programme includes 2 or 3 festival fixtures against other South West Counties to support the players progress. These festivals are attended by FA scouts as well as Centre of Excellence staff to monitor the players progress. Centre of Excellence referrals are made throughout the PDC programme with consultation from the player and parents who receive written progress reports. Currently 4 players from Cornwall attend the Centre of Excellence in Devon.

We were delighted to announce that the Cornwall FA was again granted a Player Development Centre Licence to deliver the 2012/13 programme. The programme was hosted on the brand new 3G facility at Brannel School, St.Stephen, Near St.Austell. The PDC will operated between 6pm and 7-30pm on Friday evenings.



In the 2011/12 season Cornwall FA were granted a license to run a Player Development Centre (PDC)for Girls. This is intended to be a level in the talent pathway to bridge the gap between Grass Roots clubs and Centres of Excellence. The PDC is in place to support the most talented Players identified by their clubs for further development of their playing ability.


Cornwall Girls PDC Entertains Exeter PDC at Callington College


On Wednesday 10th April, Cornwall FA Girls Player Development Centre welcomed their counterparts from Exeter to a two game festival at the Under 11 and Under 13 age groups.

Cornwall played extremely well in both age groups, the under 11’s, led by Barry Rowe, played with a freedom and expression that was excellent to see, playing in a 7 v 7 format the girls really made use of the ball, moving it quickly and effectively to create goal scoring opportunities, with this the girls also showed a fantastic appetite for the game by working hard for each other and supporting their team mates when defending.

In the Under 13’s; Cornwall, led by Dan Inch, played like a team in a more structured 9 v 9 format the girls played with positional intelligence and with individual skill against a strong Exeter side, Cornwall moved the ball through midfield extremely well with accurate passing and movement to match. Cornwall dominated both of the games technically and improved tactically in the second game to enforce their dominance onto the score board.
