Talented local player? We want to hear from you!
Tamworth FC are again running a series of trials in order to identify and recruit the most talented young players in the local area.
TAMWORTH FC U21
The first open trial will take place on the morning of Saturday June 4th at our Shuttington Training Ground. This season has seen players link up with the club upon release from academies in the Premier League, Football League, and National League with an aim of progressing into senior football.
9 members of the squad have enjoyed first team action in a variety of competitions this year, with our aim to develop more in the 2016/17 campaign. Players will be able to enjoy the benefits of playing and training on the new 3G surface alongside the first team at The Lamb. In addition to this our U21s will be battling it out in several regional cup competitions, the Midland Football U21 League and additional Academy exhibition games.
All applicants must be under 21 as of September 1st 2016 in order to be eligible. Please email a copy of your footballing CV to email@example.com in order to register your interest.
TAMWORTH FC SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMME
Following on from two successful initial trials, the next opportunity to try out for this programme will be on the morning of Saturday May 21st.
The programme, which officially launches in September, will see 16-19 year old players will train with UEFA A Licensed Coaches on a daily basis, and represent the club in competitions such as The National League Youth Alliance, The Midland Junior Premier League, and The FA Youth Cup.
Alongside this, players will study towards a BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport, which is the equivalent of 3 A Levels, and can be used to access various University courses.
Talented local players currently in Year 11 or Year 12 at school can register for the new trial by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
TAMWORTH FC DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY
In addition to the two programmes above, Tamworth FC will continue to run its successful Development Academy programmes in 2016/17. These will operate from U8-U16, and players will get the chance to train with the club once a week, along with around 10 fixtures per season against professional clubs in school holidays. All players will remain registered with their grass roots clubs.
Trails will be taking place during the summer at various age groups. To express your interest, please email email@example.com
