Boston United Football Club are holding open trials for their newly formed Regional Talent Club for young, elite female players this month.

The first of the trials was held on Saturday and there is another on June 25, at Kirton Middlecott Sports and Fitness Centre.

The trials are open to age categories Under-10 (which BUFC are running independently), Under-12, Under-14 and Under-16.

The Regional Talent Club is designed to deliver coaching and education to enable female players to reach their fullest potential in football.

Boston United are the only club in Lincolnshire to be awarded a licence by the FA.

A spokesman for the club said: “Being based locally in Boston will allow the club to become a central hub for girls in the wider locality to have the opportunity to develop their skills.”
