Girls RTC – FAQ
When are decisions made and when will this be notified following the recent Trials?
Our coaches will be making final decisions immediately after the last trial date which takes place on Saturday 25th June 2016. We will write to everybody immediately after, so you will all know the outcome by the end of the following week at the latest.
I came to the first trial, but do I have to attend the second trial?
As we said on the website when you registered, you do not have to attend both trial dates if you don’t want to. So please don’t feel under any pressure to sign up for the second trial taking place on 25th June. Some have booked for both dates but equally some have chosen just one. Of course if you feel that you would like to attend the second trial, then you will be very welcome.
Some parents have commented that they feel that having two opportunities might be of some value as we get to see more of the player. Well I suppose that makes sense, but for our part we also feel that the activities that the players were involved with certainly gave us the opportunity to see the players in all of the four corners of the FA four corner model for long term player development.
If I am not successful on this occasion does this mean the door is closed to me?
Absolutely not. In the event that you have not been successful at the trial stage, then we would like to monitor your progress in football and will take a keen interest in your development. We may ask you to attend some of our training sessions so that we can work with you, giving you ongoing consideration and some guidance. And we would certainly be happy to accommodate you for a further trial in the future.
Is it true that Boston United Regional Talent Club training sessions will be taking place at the Jakemans Stadium?
Yes indeed it is. The Jakemans Stadium is the home of Boston United Football Club. It is a stadium with a 6778 capacity, the very stadium that our men’s team play at in the National League North and previously the Football League. I think you will agree that the girls are extremely lucky to be able to train in a proper stadium facility and under floodlights in the winter months. Parent’s too are extremely lucky since you will be able to have the cover of a stand as well as a somewhere where you can obtain a hot drink and refreshments in those cold winter months.
But the use of the Jakemans stadium isn’t going to be permanent as we have already commenced the building of one of the newest football stadiums and training facilities in the country at our Quadrant development. The Quadrant will include a wonderful new stadium, an all weather 3G training pitch. If you would like to take a look at this then please feel free to follow this link to the website http://www.thequadrantboston.co.uk/the-project/football-stadium/
Where are fixtures going to be played?
We are finalising this right now, but don’t worry it is well in hand. As it stands we will be playing our fixtures at Kirton Middlecott Sports and Fitness Centre, PE20 1JS. However we are in discussions with another facility within Boston to use as a possible site for fixtures.
Who will be playing against?
As with all Regional Talent Clubs, our under 10’s and under 12’s will be playing in a local Charter Standard boys/mixed grassroots league. We have applied to be in the Peterborough and District Junior Alliance League, which in our opinion is the best run grassroots league in our area.
The under 14’s and under 16’s are in the FA Girls’ England Talent Pathway RTC Tier 2/3 North Region. Fixtures will be against Derby County, Doncaster Rovers Belles, Durham Women, Nottingham Forest Ladies, Sheffield United and Teeside Sport. This is in addition to out of region fixtures and provision for games against boys teams. This is the same for all RTC’s in our region.
