Bridgwater Town FC Development Centre Trials - Bridgwater & Taunton College

In partnership with Bridgwater College, Bridgwater Town FC offer a Football Development Centre for boys in years 9, 10 & 11. The Development Centre works in conjunction with local grassroots/JPL clubs and provides additional training for players and coach education for grassroots coaches.

The weekly sessions are delivered by FA/UEFA qualified staff and have a technical and tactical focus.

Robert Blake Science College student Nash Eastwood is the latest youngster to have progressed through the Development Centre in to the U18’s and has featured and scored for the Reserve team.
