Brentford FC Community Sports Trust has announced that their next trials will take place on Tuesday 23 October 2018 at Uxbridge High School. The Football Development Centre (FDC) offers talented young players the opportunity to receive elite coaching– enhancing their skills in a player-centred environment.
What does the Football Development Centre involve?
With elite football coaching spanning more than 18 years, players will attend weekly training sessions at our venues in Southall, Twickenham and Uxbridge. Goalkeepers are catered for with specialist coaching staff. The FDC includes term-time training in the evening and a structured development match programme against other football sports trusts such as Coventry City, Ipswich Town, MK Dons, Oxford United, Wycombe Wanderers and many more.
Plus, there are established Performance Squads as a level up from the current FDC programme. This initiative provides capable players with the opportunity to play against more skilled teams.
What is the benefit of joining our Football Development Centre?
Parents have highlighted the positive impact our FDC has had on their children.
Damian Christian, whose son attends our FDC, said: “We would like to thank the Brentford FC Football Development Centre and all the coaching staff for helping with Frankie’s footballing progress. He has thoroughly enjoyed the training after joining aged seven, the coaches and methods used by the development centre has had an incredibly strong and positive effect on him as a person and player."
Simon Cairnes agrees. He said: “When the boys play against other opposition, their superior skills, positioning and tactical knowledge really shines through and shows just how well they are coached.”
What is the criteria for the trials?
The trials are available to:
boys in school years 1 to 11
boys who live in Hounslow, Ealing, Richmond, Hillingdon and Spelthorne.
