Development Centre Trials

29 March 2016

August date for football hopefuls.

Colchester United Football in the Community is holding a Development Centre Open Trial Evening for talented young footballers.

The Open Trial evening will take place on Wednesday 10th August at Shrub End Community & Sports Centre, Boadicea Way, Colchester, Essex, CO2 9BG from 4.00–5.30pm (U7s-U11s) and 6.00-7.30pm (U12s–U16s).

We are looking for talented footballers between the U7s and U16s age groups who are looking to improve their individual ability and progress along the Colchester United pathway in either our Colchester or Maldon based centres.

The Development Centre is an invitation-only player development programme, with challenging training sessions led by UEFA licensed coaches with an emphasis on developing the individual player. 

As part of the programme, players are developed at weekly sessions and participate in fixtures against other professional PDCs throughout the season.

There are also further opportunities for boys to progress onto the clubs elite and academy programmes should boys demonstrate the required ability.

Colchester United Football in the Community would like to state that all Development Centre players are encouraged to continue playing for their local teams and that any matches organised throughout the season would not affect their club matches.
