Well i'm not sure if you have heard of footballCV.com before?
You pay a membership fee, and then pay for trials you want, which a host of premier league, championship league 1, 2 blah blah get to see you play. Seems to have a decent success rate, and it gets you noticed. So you could get flights over, and just sleep in a hotel if you attend the trials, but the flights will cost a lot but its just a suggestion...i'll let you figure it out.

Me personally, I am 17 now with no coaching by a proffesional team, still believe i'm good enough to make it, hopefully footballCV will help me, and if I dont get noticed on my first attempt, I will be playing with players who may get noticed, which will help me understand where i'm at and where I need to be.

Here are some success stories posted on FootballCV's site from registered users from outside the UK

Another FootballCV member to be linked to FK Banik Most in the Czech Republic is Gabriel Poulino. The 18 year old Canadian attacker attended the FootballCV residential Trials Camp in October 2009, where a scout from FK Banik Most spotted him.

24 year old FootballCV member Bacary Bojang has signed for Blue Square Premier side Tamworth. The Gambian-born Danish striker first registered with FootballCV in April 2010 and attended our trials day event at Beckenham Goals Centre in June of this year. The powerful and quick attacker made a name for himself in Danish football when playing for second division side B1909 and Superliga side Odense Boldklub.

Apparently Chris Smalling (Manchester United) was a member of the site in 2006.

Nah. I'm only 14 atm anyway, and my parents don't support me enough/have the money to send me to England right now. Maybe when I'm older. But I'm thinking of trying to use the A-league as a springboard for an international career.

I'm gonna try and get a scholarship/financial assistance for my local semi pro team (the one affiliated with Mariners), then go from there.
