All the standard trials have now finished for the 2017/18 season, but we will be holding an OPEN TRIAL to which any aspiring male footballer age 16-18 may attend, with a view to securing a place in the Staines Town / Kingston College Men's Football Academy.
This will be held on Thursday 20 July 2017, with a 10:15am arrival time ready for a 10:30am start. The session will last approximately two hours.
The VENUE is:
Hampton Wick Royal Cricket Club,
Bushy Park, Hampton Wick, Kingston Upon Thames, Surrey, KT1 4AZ. (Please see map below).
The nearest station is Hampton Wick, from where it’s 5-10 minutes’ walk to the venue.
FACILITIES – The trial will be on a natural grass surface. Changing rooms will be available, and parking is available on site.
WHAT TO WEAR and BRING – Please wear full training kit (no track suit bottoms or hats). Bring boots both for grass; shin pads; and a drinks bottle. Goalkeepers can wear bottoms; should also bring gloves and a cap if required.
It is possible that you may be offered an Academy place directly after the session. Students who are offered an Academy place will have to undertake a full-time academic Sports course at the College, and you must apply for this as soon as possible.
Our Football Academy is widely regarded as one of the elite Further Education football establishments in the country, and has a proven record of developing young players through to senior First Team level, as can be seen on the Staines Town Football Club Academy Hall of Fame. We look forward to seeing you perform, and we wish you every success in your trial and in the year to come.
