BRIGHTON and Hove Albion’s official charity is celebrating FA Girls’ Football Week by launching a series of new football development centres.

Albion in the Community is setting up four centres for girls only. It is launching them with a special offer of £1 for the first three sessions. After that, sessions are £3.

The new centres will take place in Crawley, Chichester, Worthing and Uckfield and join AITC’s regular sessions at Albion’s American Express Elite Football Performance Centre in Lancing and venues in Worthing, Shoreham and Brighton.

Suitable for talented local players aged eight to 16, sessions will be led by AITC’s FA-qualified coaches and be based on Brighton amnd Hove Albion’s academy training syllabus. The centres get under way at the end of November and will initially run until the end of March.
