The trials allow the Trust to select players to be part of the group that earn educational qualifications while playing games and representing Brentford. Players can study for A Levels or a BTEC while training and playing games in competitive leagues.

The trial day will take place next Tuesday, 6 April, at Gunnersbury Park. It will run from 12noon until 2pm as potential players are put through their paces. See more below or here.
