The ESFA U18 Schoolboys’ Pro:Direct trials kick off this weekend with schoolboys from around the northern counties competing for a place in the next round of the process! The players, who have been nominated by their County Schools’ FA to attend the Pro:Direct trials, will be tested through a set of drills and a competitive game against their fellow nominees. The trial is being hosted at Cochrane Park in Newcastle from 2pm-6pm this Sunday 24th October.
ESFA regional selectors will select a squad of boys from this trial to represent the North in the next stage of the trials process where the North will face the Midlands at Lilleshall National Sports Centre on Sunday 28th November. The successful nominees will be announced here on schoolsfootball.org at 5pm on Monday 25th November and via our social media channels.
The remaining regional Pro:Direct trials will be hosted on Sunday 7th November in the South West and South East with more nominees playing for the opportunity to represent their country and pull on the prestigious three lions shirt!
