Weston-super-Mare AFC Academy, which is 1 of only 22 clubs outside of the Football League nationally to be a licensed Academy and the only 1 in North Somerset, has organised trials for players starting Year 8 in September (12/13 years old) at the Optima Stadium.
This is a fantastic opportunity for players to enter a semi-professional environment, in the Southern Premier League, supporting their aspirations of becoming a professional footballer.
The first trial will take place on Saturday 7th May 2022, 10am – 12pm. You must register using the form below to attend this trial.
Both trials will take place on the Optima Stadium’s FIFA quality 3G surface. We ask that players bring boots and shin pads.
The Academy has received record investment over the last 18 months, appointing Head of Academy Simon Panes and Head of Coaching Mark Mckeever, who is also the club’s Head of Senior Phase.
When asked about the sessions, U12’s Manager, Craig Graham, told westonsmareafc.co.uk:
As we moved from 9 a side to 11 a side, we are looking to add some talented players into an improving and already good squad.
“Training twice a week and playing tough JPL games on a Saturday really pushes players and helps them development, with excellent facilities and a enjoyably environment Weston Academy gives players the opportunity to grow and develop as footballers.
“We look forward to seeing your talent in May.”
