    Was there any vacancies for the U16 Goalkeeper Position (2018) or is the previous goalkeeper retained? Cheers

    • Helen 23/10/2017 at 7:27 am

      Hi Serhan, The GK for 2018 U16’s has already been retained.
      All the best for the season.

      • Jonathan 29/10/2017 at 10:35 am

        Hi Helen,
        Is there another way I could trial for a team as i am currently injured and will be out for the upcoming trial dates?

        • Helen 29/10/2017 at 10:11 pm

          Hi Jonathan, Please come to the trial on Sunday and speak to the coach. Which age group are you trialing for?

          • Jonathan 30/10/2017 at 7:56 am

            I was going to trial for the U15 team. But I don’t think I’ll be fully fit for at least a few months

  • Liam Maloney 22/10/2017 at 5:52 am


    Do you need to be available for all of the above dates?

    I am interested in the under 16 trials and can do Sunday 5th, Tues 7th and Thursday 9th but not the other dates as I will be away.

    Cheers Liam

    • Helen 23/10/2017 at 7:31 am

      Liam, The first three sessions may be OK as players are often signed during this time. However you will need to confirm this with the coach on Sunday 5th.

  • Justine Perry 24/10/2017 at 12:37 am

    Good afternoon Helen,

    Do we email the completed trial registration form back to you or do we just bring it on the day?

    • Helen 24/10/2017 at 2:58 am

      Hi Justine, Please bring it on the day. Thank you.

  • Murtaza 24/10/2017 at 10:41 pm

    Hi, For the under 14s do we have to attend all trials (5th, 7,9,14,16)?

    • Helen 25/10/2017 at 2:18 am

      Players are often offered positions during the first or second trial dates. Remaining trial dates are used if we are still looking for a player for a particular position.

  • Seth Rauniyar 27/10/2017 at 1:15 am

    Hi, I will not be able to attend on the 5th of November, so can I attend on 12th of November

    • Helen 27/10/2017 at 4:27 am

      Yes plus there is also mid week trials on the Tuesday and Thursday following the 5th.

  • susan 27/10/2017 at 6:56 am

    Are there still spots in U13? or are most players retained?
