Brentford FC CST Football Development Centre - Trials, October 2016
School Years 7-11
Monday 24th October 2016
Swift Road Outdoor Sports Centre
Places are now available for our Football Development Centre Trials which will take place on Monday 24th October 2016 (during the half term holidays). The trials are separated into two sessions with trials for years 1 to 6 taking place in the morning and trials for years 7 to 11 taking place in the afternoon.
(Please note we can only accept applications for player’s who live in the following Borough’s: Hounslow, Richmond, Ealing, Hillingdon & Spelthorne).
Current Football Development Centre player's need not apply for these trials.
Our Football Development Centre (FDC) has been in existence for over 17 years and was started with the aim of offering a development programme for talented young players.
The fee-based weekly programme operates at 2 venues (Southall and Twickenham). Player’s train once a week. The programme runs in conjunction with training that players may receive elsewhere.
The FDC also offers a *development match programme (during school holidays), taking place 5 times a year. Matches are played against other professional clubs Development Programmes such as Coventry, MK Dons, Wycombe Wanderers and Oxford United amongst others. Players are encouraged to take part in the matches as this helps us assess the progress of players.
Primarily, we recruit player’s via our existing projects and trusted sources. However, The FDC Trials are held twice a year (also at Easter) and gives players a chance to trial who would not normally be a participant at one of our sessions. Players must be in school year’s 1 to 11.
For those in Year 11, a route exists to apply for our ELITE Development Football Programme in conjunction with West Thames College which is a potential pathway to Brentford FC's newly formed 'B' team. We can also offer players in that age group a potential pathway to play for Brentford FC in The English Football League Trust National Futal League. Pathways inlcude, The FA Futsal Centre of Excellence, England U19 & 23 Futsal teams. Contact details for this can be seen at the bottom.
We will be holding our sixth set of trials for our FDC at Swift Road Outdoor Sports Centre (adjacent to Dairy Meadow School) in Southall. There will be a training session followed by conditioned small-sided games.
The trial lasts for 3 hours (including a 30 minute rest period). The trials cost £10.00 per person (plus booking fee). Places are strictly limited in all the age groups - your child must train in the correct year group and live in one of the eligible Borough’s (see top of article) for this trial.
Registration closes at 6pm, Sunday 23rd October 2016
If your child is successful then they will be invited to join the FDC group - this will not affect your child’s regular Saturday or Sunday football.
