Brentford FC Community Sports Trust's football development centre trials will take place at the start of next month. Trials will be held for potential players in school years ten and 11 for the 2021/2 academic year. They will be held at Gunnersbury Park on Wednesday 1 September.
Players will participate in a two-hour training session consisting of one hour of technical practices and one hour of conditioned small-sided games. No feedback will be provided on the day. The trial is available for new players wishing to join the Trust's football programme and is available for both outfield and goalkeepers, with specific training being provided. Existing players in the programme do not need to re-trial. See more here.
