Mansfield Town Football Club are on the lookout for talented young footballers to become part of our September 2019 performance group intake.
Players must be in Year 11 or Year 12 at school, with either their GCSEs coming up in the summer, or have completed GCSEs in 2018 to be eligible.
Trials will take place on Tuesday 16 April at One Call Stadium. 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.
Simon Ward, lead performance coach, 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 at Brooksby Melton College, to university level education or a career in physiotherapy and sports therapy.”
Players are required to report to One Call Stadium, Quarry Lane, Mansfield, NG18 5DA at 10:30am. All players will need suitable footwear for a 3G surface. Players will also need to bring drinks bottles, wear shin pads and suitable clothing for weather conditions.
