We were delighted to host some of the top girl players in the South West at the Playing Field last night (Wednesday, 28th).

The occasion was a girls’ U13/14 regional talent pathway game where the FA support and monitor the players to help with their progression and development within the pathway.

Joint first-team manager Tim Legg said afterwards: “It was a pleasure to host and support the FA girls’ talent pathway at Wellington AFC.

“After the great achievement in the Euros by the Lionesses, it’s amazing to see such talented players in the South West trying to follow in their footsteps.

“We would like to thank all the volunteers for supporting this occasion for the FA and making the environment a positive one for the girls to enjoy playing football.”

The talent pathway has produced a number of top players including our own Brooke Aspin who captains England Under 17s and plays for Bristol City Women in the Barclays FA Championship.

Among our volunteers helping out on the night was Wellington Ladies manager Nyima Touray, who was one of the referee’s assistants.
