England and Manchester City footballer Jill Scott searches for the next generation of talent (UK)
England and Manchester City Women midfielder Jill Scott is inviting young women to a coaching meet and greet as part of a drive to find the next generation of female football stars.
With the launch of her brand new Womens Football Academy with Hopwood Hall College in September, Jill is on the lookout for local female talent in the Rochdale, Oldham, Bury and Manchester areas to develop in her academy.
Before heading off to the Euros in the summer, the international stalwart will be hosting an hour long open night at Hopwood Hall’s Sports Park in Middleton on the 18th April from 5pm.
