Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre was host to ISFAs first ever Girls U15 Regional Representative Festival as 45 girls from across the country participated in an afternoon of 11v11 matches. The opening game was a sign of things to come as the South Reds and South Blues played out an entertaining 1-1 draw with some excellent football played throughout the game. The South Reds then found there scoring boots in the next game as they defeated the North & Midlands, who were also narrowly beaten in their next game against the South Blues despite playing some exceptional passing football.

In the second round of fixtures South Reds snatched a late equaliser against South Blues as the southern teams once again played out an entertaining draw, before the South Reds once again produced some deadly finishing to defeat the North & Midlands. In the final game North & Midlands got their revenge on the South Blues claiming a 3-1 victory, a result that guaranteed the South Reds top spot for the day.

ISFA Football Development Manager Ian Bent was delighted with the success of the first ever Girls U15 Regional Representative Festival. “It was great to see months of planning result in an excellent afternoon of girls football here today, and I would like to thank everyone who has supported todays event. Not only was it great to see so many girls from across the country representing their region, but the quality of football throughout the day was superb, and was further evidence of the continued growth, popularity, and increasing talent of girls football within the independent schools sector”.

ISFA have launched a new girls U15 Regional Representative Programme to complement the existing Girls National Representative Programme. In its first year the programme will consist of ‘Talent ID Days’ in the South and North & Midlands taking place in March, with an inaugural South v North & Midlands representative fixture taking place in the summer term. Both of these events will then will be used to select next seasons ISFA Girls U16 National Squad, with the Girls U15 Regional Programme being the start of the ISFA Girls Representative Programme, and the first opportunity for girls to get involved in the programme.

The programme is open to any girls in Y9 & Y10 attending an ISFA member school (girls not attending an ISFA member school can take part in the programme following the school becoming a member of ISFA). Any girl wishing to take part in the programme is invited to attend the ‘Talent ID Day’ in their region.

Players can be nominated by their school, teacher, or parent. To nominate someone simply complete the nomination form and return to Ian Bent (details on the nomination form).

The day will consist of training sessions run by ISFA coaches and small sided games, with the best players being selected to represent the region in the representative fixture, and the following seasons Girls U16 National Representative team, which includes camps at Cambridge and St Georges Park plus international fixtures.
