We are on the lookout for talented young footballers to become part of our Mansfield Town performance group in September 2019.
Players must be in Year 11 or Year 12, with either their GCSEs coming up in the summer, or having completed GCSEs in 2018, to be eligible.
Trials will take place on Friday 22 February at One Call Stadium, and those who make the squad will be enrolled on a football and education programme based at One Call Stadium and The RH Academy training facility in Pleasley.
Simon Ward, the lead performance group coach at Mansfield Town, believes that the programme can open up several avenues for promising young players.
“We are committed to locally based footballers and offering them a path to elite level football and education,” he said.
“Progression beyond this course could be anything from professional football or under-21 football, to university level education or a career in physiotherapy and sports therapy.”
Applicants are required to report to One Call Stadium, Quarry Lane, Mansfield, NG18 5DA at 11:30am on Friday 22 February. All players will need suitable footwear for a 3G surface, and will also need to bring drinks bottles and suitable clothing for weather conditions.
