Barking Abbey Girls Academy will be hosting open training sessions as they look to recruit new players.

The Academy are now in an official partnership with West Ham Women of the Women’s Super League, acting as their academy, and are keen to make new additions in the coming weeks.

They currently run two teams, one in the WSL Academies League and the other is a college league team for girls needing more development time.

Girls can come along to an open training session on Tuesday, October 23 at 10am or an evening session on Tuesday, November 6 at 7pm to try out for either side at Sandringham Road.

The Academy is led by UEFA pro licence holder Keith Boanas and Nikita Runnacles, a UEFA A candidate.
