REGISTRATION is now open for the Westmorland Football Associations girls development programme for when the 2020-21 season gets under way.

The programme, which will for the second season have four different squads representing the county, will be hoping to build on the success of the previous campaign where there were over 100 girls on trial to represent Cumbria.

Each squad will cover the Under 10, Under 12, Under 14 and Under 16 age categories with a different coach looking after each group.

And in a further addition ahead of the new season, training will be weekly while players have the opportunity to purchase some kit.

However to apply for the trials, players need to be playing in the South Lakes Girls League and are also required to play for a Westmorland FA affiliated club. Other requirements must also be met which includes living in Westmorland as well as going to school within the Westmorland region.

There will also be one big change where training takes place every week rather than once a fortnight and off the pitch The Westmorland FA had also announced the appointment of Chris Miller who will be part of the forthcoming season's coaching team which includes James Pattison, Graeme Blair and Rob Haworth.

The Westmorland FA is looking for an assistant coach to join the programme and if anyone is interested please email
