The Liverpool Girls Centre of Excellence currently caters for 80 talented footballers within the North West under the stewardship and guidance of Centre Director, Kevin Quigley. Kevin is the current holder of the UEFA ‘A’ Licence added to his IFA, FAI and FA coaching certificates and has extensive coaching experience throughout the North West of Ireland, Wales and England.
Structured and progressive coaching is given to talented female footballers within our centre from some of the best youth coaches in the city. Further to this, an education of leadership, sports psychology, injury management, fitness and nutrition is also given to our players offering further opportunity, knowledge and guidance.
The purpose of FA Centres is to identify players of outstanding ability and place them in a technical and educational programme designed to produce excellence in conjunction with personal development.
The FA Girls Centre of Excellence is embedded into the female player pathway with talent identification days throughout the National Fixture Programme which enables England Scouts to watch the best girls from all over the county.
The centre currently has teams within the Under 9, Under 11, Under 13, Under 15 and Under 17 age categories. The main emphasis is on player development in the hope that many of our girls will continue to make great strides towards the elite women’s game with our First team and also gain international recognition.
The centre holds coaching sessions twice a week and plays match day fixtures against other FA CofE’s such as Everton, Blackburn, Manchester Utd, Aston Villa, Derby, Leeds Utd, Sheff Utd and Stoke.
Current Liverpool Ladies’ and WSL stars Sam Chappell, Hannah Keraykoplis, Sophie Jones, Aimee Fleming and Caroline Charlton are former players of the centre, and teammates Vicky and Kelly Jones are among its coaches.
