Western Sydney Wanderers academy coach Christian Layland believes there's more talent in Wagga capable of joining their W-League keeper Jada Whyman in the big leagues as he holds clinics in the city this week.
Layland took a bunch of youngsters through their paces at Rawlings Park on Monday, and was impressed with the talent on display.
"We found even these young ones had the basics, we were able to go at a higher level than we normally would for this age level," he said.
"We believe we have a very tangible connection with Wagga and I'm not here on official business, but I'm looking at players and if there's someone (good enough) we'll take them up.
"Some kids really stood out. There's some to keep an eye on and when I come back here next, see how they've progressed."
"I've taken six players to Sydney over the last 18 months, and four of them have been given contracts by clubs."
Layland supported Sydney FC and the Newcastle Jets' decision to bring a W-League pre-season game to Wagga in October.
"It's really important to see professional football in your town. It inspires young women and girls to play and take up the game," Layland said.
"If we can (eventually) get an A-League or W-League season proper game in a region like this, it will only increase the interest."
Wagga City Wanderers junior Talia Franklin, nine, said the clinic helped improve their basic skills.
"We learnt to keep the ball moving when taking the touch and and away from the defender, not to them," she said.
"We also were shown how to shoot with your laces and the middle of your boot."
The clinics continue at Rawlings Park on Tuesday.
