Academy Trial Day in February

14 February 2013

Your chance to show off your talent (under 14/15 age groups full)

If you are aged 6 - 15 and are interested in playing for Southend United Football Club, this could be your opportunity to show off your football skills.

We are now full in both under 14/15 age groups for the trial day, but we are still accepting applications for the younger age groups.

Southend United's Academy is holding a trial day on Wednesday 20th February for players looking to progress up the football ladder.

The Academy will be running a trial day for players aged Under 7 through to Under 15's including goalkeepers. We do not hold trials for Under 16's.

The trials are open to anyone, and will consist of small-sided games in each individual age group (number dependant). Academy coaching and recruitment team will be on hand to watch, in our safe, pressure free environment.

If you are interested in attending one of the trial days, please read carefully through the below information and follow the instructions to book your place.
