Do you want to play for Southend United? This could be your chance!
Southend United Community and Educational Trust are now offering trials to young people in Year 11 at school interested in playing and learning with Southend United.
We will be running programmes in both 11-a-side and Futsal, giving you the opportunity to develop your technical skills whilst gaining a first class education.
The 11-a-side league will see you playing in a regional league against other professional football clubs, whilst training locally under the supervision of one of the clubs academy coaches. You can combine this with studying for a BTEC in Sport at Level 1, 2 or 3, and will study here at Roots Hall Stadium.
Our Futsal scholarship gives you the opportunity to represent Southend United against clubs such as Chelsea, Brighton and Norwich in the South East Regional Futsal league, whilst taking part in Futsal training twice a week under the supervision of the clubs specialist Futsal coach. Futsal is a fast paced 5-a-side game, which develops technical and physical attributes of players. This course also gives young people the opportunity to play in the national Soccer AM Futsal cup, and has opportunities to move into England development camps. This course can also be combined with studying for a BTEC in Sport at Level 1, 2 or 3.
Trials will be held on the following dates:
Futsal: Thursday 30th April at Southend Leisure and Tennis Centre – 5-6pm
