What is the benefit of joining the Girls Football Development Centre?
Parents have highlighted the positive impact our FDC has had on their children.
Olwyn Young, whose daughter Tasana attends, said: “The sessions have helped Tasana a lot with her football, her confidence has grown on the ball and as an individual. She has enjoyed going to the sessions because she feels she is part of a team for herself and not a shadow for her brother and her love for football has grown as she gets to compete in the tournaments and represent Brentford FC. The Girls Development Centre has also allowed Tasana to meet girls that share the same interests as her and have made some good friends.”
Sam agrees. She said: “My daughter Calli had a fantastic time and loved playing in the matches. She is already looking forward to the next opportunity to play with the team again.”
