Basford United call-out for young talent with education academy trials

By Josh Wing

Basford are looking to sign more players to the education programme which runs in association with Nottingham College.

An opportunity for young aspiring footballers has arrived once more at Greenwich Avenue- a chance that could include you!

With trials for the Education Academy taking place at the ground, Friday 8th June from 6pm, Basford are looking for players aged between 16-18 years who want to take their game to the next level.

Players will be given the chance to be coached by UEFA A and B license coaches, who not only provide weekly training sessions but also offer individual development plans and assessments. It's not just on the pitch the programme supports players with, but also off it.

They may also be able to participate in various competitions throughout the season including the FA Youth Cup.

Participants are required to study a full-time course at Levels 2 or 3 in YMCA or BTEC Sport. This may include vocational courses that cover refereeing, event organisation, coaching and leading activities.

Beyond the programme, players of past have gone on to play for the community and even the first team of Basford United. However, players are always encouraged to follow the right path for them, with some opting for university studies.

So whether it's combining football with education or pure passion for the beautiful game- have you what it takes to join the Basford United Education Academy?

Players are encouraged to apply online and once they have participated in the trial, interviews will take place to discuss their academics.

Courses start in September so Apply NOW at:
