Brentford FC Community Sports Trust are looking for talented young footballers to join their Football Development programme. They are running trials this Easter to give young players a chance to get involved.
The trials will take place on the following dates at the following locations:
Wednesday 8 April – Uxbridge Indoor Dome, Uxbridge High School
Tuesday 14 April – Gunnersbury Park Sports Hub, Gunnersbury Park
What does the Football Development programme involve?
With expert football coaching spanning more than 18 years, players will attend weekly training sessions at our brand-new sports hubs at Gunnersbury Park and Uxbridge High School. Goalkeepers are catered for with specialist coaching staff. The football development programme offers young people of any ability, and those with potential, the opportunity to receive a high-quality football education experience – enabling them to improve in a player-centred environment.
The programme includes term-time training in the evening and a structured development match programme against other community sports trusts such as Coventry City, Ipswich Town, Milton Keynes Dons, Oxford United, Wycombe Wanderers and many more. Plus, there is an established a Performance Centre providing players – with the potential – to be challenged further. Coaching staff will be assessing and evaluating the development of each player on a continuous basis during the training sessions and the match programme – providing every player in our programme an incentive to progress through our football pathway.
What is the benefit of joining our Football Development Centre?
Ben Grummit, who is now part of our football education programme, believes our advanced centres were instrumental in developing his football career. He said: “Through attending the programme, I now have the confidence to do many things with my footballing ability, and I’ve been given many chances to showcase my talents in-front of many coaches and scouts. The continuous training and support from the coaches are perfect for a young player trying to develop their skills. The coaches have also been giving me one to one advice about how to improve any weaknesses I have.”
What is the criteria for the trials?
The trials are available to:
- Boys in school years 2 to 11.
- Boys who live in Berkshire, Harrow, Hammersmith, Hounslow, Ealing, Richmond, Hillingdon and Spelthorne.
