The Youth Radar receives a lot of enquiries from youngsters searching for a club following their release from a professional club and this is a great opportunity for those people.
The League Football Education (LFE) are holding a assessment trials day on various dates next month and are inviting youngsters to apply via their website.
The trials will be held all over the country on four dates for different regions at various venues.
- Thursday 3rd May 2012 – Hyde FC (North)
- Tuesday 8th May 2012 – Staines Town FC (South)
- Wednesday 9th May 2012 – Walsall FC (West Midlands)
- Thursday 10th May 2012 – Loughborough College (East Midlands)
The event is run in association with The PFA and The Football League, the Assessment Trials provide the perfect opportunity for players who have not been offered professional terms at their existing clubs to showcase their talents.
Over 225 players attended four regional events last May. Expanding each season the 2012 events expect to showcase the talents of over 250 players.
Players must be in their ‘Under 19’ season or lower to register and the applicants are selected on a first come first serve basis.
Online video analysis, produced by E-Scout, will feature at this year’s trial days to allow clubs all across the world to assess the players at the event.
