Latest news from the Essex FA

An opportunity to develop female footballing talent in the county is currently being promoted by the Essex FA’s Girls Player Development Centre, who will appoint three committed coaches out of those who apply by Monday June 8.

Shenfield High School in Brentwood is the base for Essex’s PDC, which caters for female players at grassroots level who can gain access through a trial process.

For those having already played at school and/or a club, the PDC is the next step on the FA Female Talent Pathway.

The overall aim is to bridge the gap between grassroots and Centres of Excellence as players still represent, and train with, their own clubs as well as receiving the additional support of PDC coaches.

The Player Development Centre operates one training night per week from 7-8:30pm, either on a Friday or a Monday, for 25 weeks.

addition there is a minimum of two friendly fixtures/festivals played against other Player Development Centres.

If you are interested, please complete and return the form available at, where you can also find a job specification.

If you have any further questions, contact Emma Burden on 01245 393073 or email

These positions are dependent on a successful FA grant being awarded. Follow @EssexCountyFA on Twitter and search for ‘EssexFootball’ on Facebook to keep informed.
