This year we are holding trials for the squad (1st & 2nd teams) and development squad (3rd & 4th teams) in the first three weeks of September. They are open to new and existing players, although you will need to sign-up for the 1st & 2nd team squad trials.

Attendance at trials is essential to be selected, and you are welcome to attend both sets of trials. Head coach Steph Allen will select the 1st/2nds squad for the season and Rosie & Darryl the 3rd/4ths development squad. The squads will be selected before the end of September.

There are no formal trials for the 5th team – but we will be looking to put together and develop a team as the season progresses.


1st & 2nd team squad trials

When: Monday 5th, 12th and 19th September, 8pm – 10pm (please arrive at 7.50pm)
Where: Petchey Academy, Dalston, E8 2EY

Steph will be selecting a squad of around 20 players to train during the year. Squad sessions are every Monday throughout the season from 8pm – 10pm (squad members are expected to attend these sessions consistently to be eligible for selection).

Ahead of the session, please register your interest in coming to the trials sessions – this is essential, even if you played in the squad last season, to ensure Steph can plan the sessions. Please fill out this quick form, will only take 1 minute.

3rd & 4th team development squad trials

When: Wednesday 7th, 14th and 21st September between 7.30pm – 9.30pm (please arrive at 7.20pm)
Where: Petchey Academy, Dalston, E8 2EY

Darryl and Rosie will be selecting a squad of around 22 players to train during the year. Development squad training is bi-weekly on Tuesdays from 7.30pm – 9pm (dates available on the website) and at Wednesday club training. On the weeks without a Tuesday session, development squad members are expected to attend the Wednesday session which will be led by the development coaches.

There is no need to register interest ahead of the sessions as these are open trials.


Cost

In order to ensure trials are affordable and so you can go to as many sessions as you like, we are offering a fixed cost of £38 (£30 students) for the whole of August and September. For new players, their first two sessions are free of charge.

If you are planning on coming to 5 or more sessions before the end of Sept, we highly recommend taking up this offer! Alternatively, you will be able to pay-per-session, which will be £7.50 (£5 students) per session.

The £38 includes:

  • 3 Wednesday sessions in August (17th, 24th & 31st)
  • All trials sessions in September
  • Regular sessions in week starting 26 Sept
  • (ie up to 11 sessions in total)

We have put a deadline of Monday 5 September on payment – please pay the club online to the usual bank account before this, otherwise you’ll need to pay the per-session rate.
