Sunderland AFC Ladies

Centre of Excellence

Sunderland AFC Girls' Centre of Excellence is run by a partnership between Sunderland AFC Foundation and Gateshead College, supported by Durham County Football Association.

The Centre of Excellence programme provides elite player development opportunities for female footballers aged 7–17 years and has helped establish local talents such as Jill Scott, Stephanie Houghton, Lucy Bronze and Jordan Nobbs, to name but a few.

Players take part in a comprehensive training programme covering all areas and concepts of football, and the Centre also takes part in the FA Centre of Excellence fixture programme and the U17’s FA National League Cup - see below for timetable.
