Academy trial

Football academy trial this week

Maidstone United are hosting a trial for their football academy next week.

The session will take place on Tuesday 18 May at the Gallagher Stadium. Invited applicants will be asked to arrive at 7pm, with the trial finishing between 8.30 and 8.45pm.

With Covid guidelines still in place, all trialists must register in advance – there will be no on-the-day applications.

Based at the home of the Stones, the club and Cornwallis Academy offer a two-year programme that combines academic sports studies, alongside football matches, training and qualifications.

You get to play and train like a full time footballer at this state-of-the-art venue. The BTEC Sport course is an ideal route for employment in the sports industry or a pathway to university.

Two academy squads compete in the National League Under 19 Alliance – one of the largest leagues in the country – featuring academy teams backed by professional or semi-pro clubs. Academy students also represent the club in the prestigious FA Youth Cup.

A number of players have been called up to the first team and under-23 squads, with several others dual-registered with local clubs.
