Well I hope you have an EU passport and if you don't then I think its pretty stupid if the guys going to get you a trial if you don't have one or are capable of getting one. You need an EU passport to sign with a european club unless your in a country with no foreign restrictions like Belgium.
well not even the passport and such its just how hard it really is I hope it is true and you get a trial that would be great im just saying i wouldnt get my hopes up that my travel team coach can get me a trial with inter
yeah I know what you're saying. it won't be easy if its true. i mean i'm not trying to say it isn't but it is the internet, people can say tons of stuff. just because he knows people at inter doesn't mean they'll agree to give you a trial. they've never seen you and there going to go on his say so, you better be top notch good or else they could feel it was a complete waste of their time, professional clubs/youth teams only want to see the best. it may sound mean but i'm being realistic, its not like that movie Goal! (good movie but really unrealistic in my opinion)

I highly doubt it. You need to be spotted at a game or high level tournament. Don't even bother calling or emailing a club,because it won't do anything. They won't offer you a trial on your say so. If you look at any football leagues website under the youth section it says stuff like "let us know your schedule and if we feel you are worth it then we will send a scout to watch a game"

However, you could try non-league clubs like the ones in the blue square north and south, they may be more accepting or may at least answer the phone.

You really can't just go to another country like England and ask for a trial.

From Fulhams website

1.There are no specific trial dates with the Fulham Academy.

2.Players (U9-U16) are asked to write to the Academy Dept with a footballing CV to include the following details:

(a) Current club/school
(b) Age/date of birth
(c) List of fixtures when the boy will be playing
(d) Position
(e) Contact telephone number and address

3. A decision will then be made whether to send a scout to watch a game.

4. If the player shows potential he will be asked to attend one of our Development Centres where their abilities are assessed. Some players may then be invited to the Academy for a trial.

5. If the player shows very good potential he may be invited straight into the Academy for a six week trial. This involves training (usually three times a week) and a game on a Sunday.

6. A decision is made between two and six weeks whether to sign or release.

Address for CVs:
Chief Youth Scout
Fulham FC Academy
Training Ground
Motspur Park
New Malden
Surrey KT3 6PT

Due to high levels of correspondence received on a weekly basis, we regret that it is impossible to enter into individual correspondence.


Seeing as you will be there for a wedding, its impossible for it to happen. Even if you need send a letter whose to say they will look at it before you have to leave and how will you play a game?

I'm not trying to be mean but its just not possible. It's not easy to get a trial.

Weymouth FC in the Blue Square Premier aka conference, right below league 2 have been hit with severe financial trouble. A lot of the first team players have been let go because their wages couldn't be paid. Weymouth have been fielding youth teams to finish out the season. Apparently kids from all over are going down to Weymouth to try and be selected to play in the games.

Here is a video/article about it http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/footbal ... 911997.stm

If anyone lives near Weymouth it may be worth it.

Do you have a trial with Bordeaux? If you do, good luck hope you get it, thats a big big club.

Its kind of already been discussed. Its very unlikely that they will look at, put all that effort in to see some kid play on the other side of the world who they've never heard about. Of course, you can get lucky, if you dont try then of course its never going to happen, but dont pin your hopes on it. You're more likely to get a response with a championship or lower tier club.

You're still young, so make it your aim to play at the highest level you can and take every oppportunity to play at a higher level. Anything to make your CV more impressive will increase your chances when your older

People who say something cannot be done are often surprised by others doing it.
