Stags' Brooksby performance group recruiting players

10 May 2018

Mansfield Town are looking to recruit talented young footballers for our performance group based at Brooksby Melton College, which will be led by former Stags' midfielder Jamie McGuire.

Players must be in Year 11 at school, with their GCSEs coming up in the summer to be eligible.

Trials will take place on Tuesday 29 May at Brooksby Melton College, Leicestershire, and those who make the squad will be enrolled on a football and education programme based at the college.

McGuire, former Stags' midfielder and now academy coach, said: “This course gives you a chance to join a group and develop your performance in football.

“We have a great partnership with Brooksby Melton College, you’ll come here and get quality coaching.

“We have a very successful youth team and development team, and the under-18s have just won their league, so the academy is booming at the moment.

“Lewis Gibbens is a fine example of what you can achieve in the performance group.

“He came up through the group, worked really hard on his football and in the gym, and now he’s just earned himself a two-year professional contract, so that’s what the group can do.

“No matter what you’ll get quality coaching and a BTEC level 3 out of the course.”

Players are required to report to Brooksby Melton College at 11.00am, ready for a 11.30am start. All players will need suitable footwear for a 3G surface, so no metal studs! They will also need to bring drinks bottles and suitable clothing for weather conditions.
