Uma started life with the RDP at our Player Technical Centre held at North Cambridge Academy. She was then selected to join our Girls Elite PDC in Ely.
Uma has attended the Girls Elite PDC Centre in Ely now for the past season and a half, we spoke to Uma’s father to see how she has found her Norwich City RDP Experience.
“It has been a fantastic opportunity which Uma has thoroughly enjoyed and has helped her develop as a player in a supportive environment. Uma has played against Arsenal, Crystal Palace, Cambridge Utd and Peterborough as well as taking part in the Norwich internal fixtures which have been amazing opportunities.”
Uma attended a 'Premier Day' at Tottenham Hotspurs training facility over the Christmas break and was invited to attend an academy trial and friendly match. Both days went excellently for Uma and has therefore been offered a place in the Spurs U13 Girls Academy.
Uma’s Father finished by adding: “We are extremely grateful for all the support, coaching and encouragement Uma has received whilst being a part of the Norwich set up which has helped along to this new and exciting chapter of her football journey.”
On behalf of the RDP, we would like to wish Uma the best of luck with her next step and we look forward to following her journey.
