All players looking for a football scholarship with us must first book their trial in advance using one of the dedicated forms above (South or North London).
Once booked, the player must attend the trial session on the date confirmed on the booking form. This will allow us to make the necessary arrangements to prepare for the trialist’s arrival.
Once the session is over, the head coach will report to the senior coaching team if the player qualifies to the next stage or not and, in turn, we’ll report back to the parents.
All selected players now join the team for a full week of training. During this time, we expect the trialist to attend and participate to the best of his ability allowing the assessment to be carried over a set of training sessions.
Given the opportunity, our coaching team will review in detail key attributes such as (high) (i) technical ability; (ii) game understanding, (iii) exemplary behaviour, (iv) social skills, (v) physical fitness and (vi) assiduity.
After all the training sessions’ notes are considered, the head coach reports to the senior coaching team the outcome of this stage and, in turn, the decision is reported back to the parents. If accepted, players move to the last stage.
At this final stage, the trialist will also join the team for competitive matches to fully determine the impact of his/her participation. Scholarship worthy players often excel in these situations as well.
The trialist full participation will be reviewed carefully before deciding if he/she qualifies for such award and will also include the performances during the competitive matches.
Only the best of the best players, at this point, are awarded scholarship. The full terms and conditions of the available scholarships are shared below and must be accepted before moving forward.
It is a long established fact that the scholarship programme has been available for the most committed and talented players we come across that otherwise couldn’t afford this unique opportunity. In return we expect to sponsor the most exemplary and attained players with past successful stories leading to signing for professional academies.
