The new model will offer players the opportunity to play in a monthly development league against other districts, the Elite PDC and Norwich City’s regional development centres in Suffolk and Cambridge.
Training will focus purely on the 11-a-side format of the game, covering formations, systems of play and tactics which will complement the overarching district fixture programme.
The primary focus of the PDC’s regional district development programme is to deliver a weekly training and fixture programme that complements existing club and school football.
Players selected, following trials, will receive:
- 29 Weeks of 1.5 hr training sessions (Sept – May)
- Monthly district development league fixtures
- Futsal festival
- Access to physio treatment
- Opportunity to progress into the EPDC
- Tour opportunities (for selected players only)
