Coach Chris Collins saw this tournament as a great way for Pro Coaching Academy to showcase some of the players they are currently working with. So in early December he entered a team in the U14 Girls’ tournament. The first round was this Sunday at Play Football in York and after some late night team selection dilemmas, emails to parents and players, multiple team sheets, he was finally happy!
But yesterday evening he received an email from the FA to say that due to other teams in this age group dropping out Pro Coaching Academy had automatically qualified for the next stage of the competition!
So we won, sort of! Not quite what we were expecting and the girls really did want to play. So the next stage is somewhere in the UK on or around March 20th. Watch this space and see what happens next!
Funny old game football…
