Exeter City’s Girls Development Centre, run by Exeter City Community Trust, is delighted that four of its graduates have joined the Exeter City Women’s Development team.
The Development Centre prides itself on providing players with the opportunity to further develop and train alongside like-minded players within their region.
The female pathway aims to ensure that appropriate playing opportunities are in place, to enable players to fulfil their potential and aspire towards playing for the women’s team.
Emily Saunders, Kitty Deem-Stone, Mia Preston and Sasha Henderson have all made the step up to the Exeter City Women’s Development squad with the aim to further develop and aim for a place within the first team.
The Girls Development Centre has been running for two seasons, there have been a number of promising players with an abundance of talent, who have come through the centre and played an integral role in the success of the women’s team.
Exeter City Women are renowned for giving opportunities to younger players, and it’s great to see so many players being retained and making that successful transition into the women’s football.
The under-16 graduates making the step this season are yet another example of the hard work taking place to provide a pathway for young players to play football at a higher level, and we wish the players all the best as they prepare for an exciting season, as a newly promoted team in the National League.
We would also like to congratulate our other under-16 graduates: Ellla Martindill, Poppy Cloke, Sasha Mole, Victoria Neuefiend, for their efforts and dedication across the course of the season and we wish them all the best with their future.
