U18 trial information

Our confirmed trial date for this season is below. It is later than usual so hopefully this gives you time to see your players in at least one game beforehand. Although the venue is not perfect geographically for all the schools and colleges, I’m sure you will appreciate that we have secured an excellent ground to hold the trial in the Sussex FA pitch at Culver Road, Lancing. We have managed to ensure that the trial is not the same evening as any Bostik (Ryman) Youth South Division fixtures and it is not a set FA Youth Cup week either.

Thursday 5th October
4pm-6pm
Sussex County FA,
Culver Road,
Lancing,
BN15 9AX

Some players may have to leave college early to get to the trial and both myself and Dave apologise if any inconvenience is caused in relation to this; we request that they are given permission in this instance if this is the case.

As per our last email, we request that teachers/coaches nominate NO more than 5 players for this trial. Due to having the trial later, we are not going to have time to have a second trial prior to our opening SEESFA fixtures, meaning we need to see the boys for as long as possible at the trial. If there are any special circumstances meaning that you want/need to send more than 5 players, please email me separately.

Nomination form available here.Player Nomination Form 2017
We have already received forms back from four schools/colleges. If you have yours ready please send them through to us ASAP to save us chasing nearer to the trial.

Thank you for your continued support,

Jude and Dave.
