Other Information

In May 2021, the club reported 

“After being informed of their success in reaching Phase Two of the England College’s National Team Trial Process, the wait has been a long one for Sasha Henderson and Mia Preston.

November 12, 2020 was the date the Young City pair learnt of the exciting news, before the National Lockdown forced a lengthy delay. Thankfully, two of Exeter City Women’s brightest talents, will now get their chance this weekend as the trials take place at Loughborough College.

The Phase Two trial will see 50 Female Players train and compete in a bid to make the final squad of 20. The Session will be coached by Keith Boanas, a Women’s FA Cup winner as Manager of Charlton, and will also see Aston Villa defender Natalie Haigh on hand to share her experiences and identify some of the Young talent on show. If successful, Sasha and Mia would be part of an England College’s Squad who will face RAF and Academy teams during the Summer months as part of their further development.

Mia will be looking to put the hard work put in during the Lockdown period to good use when the Trials begin. “I’m looking forward to the opportunity. Sasha and I have worked really hard on our fitness and are just glad that the trials are still on. I’m really excited to show what I’ve learnt on the pitch with Exeter City and hopefully I can impress on Saturday.”
