FC United Academy recruitment trials to take place during half-term

FC United Academy recruitment trials to take place during half-termFC United’s Academy are starting their recruitment process early this year, and are hosting the first set of Academy Trials next week during the half-term break. Trials will continue to be held every half-term throughout this academic year.

The Academy is looking to recruit talented footballers who are currently in their final year at school (year 11) to sign up to our full-time Academy Programme starting in September 2018.

Successful applicants will undertake a two year full-time course where they will train, study towards a BTEC Level 3 (which is equivalent to two A-Levels) and play in weekly league fixtures

The Academy team plays in the following competitions; FA Youth Cup, National League U19 Alliance, Greater Manchester County Cup, English Colleges Football Association (ECFA)

The trial dates and times are:

Thursday 26th & Friday 27th October 3pm – 5pm each day
The trial will consist of a training session on the Thursday, followed by a friendly match on the Friday. Players need to arrive at 2.30pm for a registration and to get ready for a 3pm start
- Players need to bring the appropriate sportswear, protective equipment (shin-pads) and footwear to play on a 3G Pitch
- Players are expected to attend for BOTH Thursday and Friday sessions and throughout the rest of the Academic year at each trial period (half-term)
- There will be further trials throughout the year, but we strongly advise that players attend all of the trial days that we host
