I'm 16 (17 in just over 2 month)
Join a Blue Square South u18 team which would mean moving over 200 miles and live with my brother.
Play in the premier youth level i'm at now, do my A-levels whilst being fully commited with football and attend footballcv trials which are viewed by higher quality clubs that I could get a trial for?
My ambition is to play as a proffesional footballer.
I don't know a whole lot about the educational system in England but I'd probably finish school to be safe. You can still play football and attend the cv trials while going to school. It will be hard but if your committed and organized you can make it work.
Once you finish school you can fully commit to football.
I wouldn't give up on one to do the other. School is a nice backup option incase something happens like an injury. Not to mention I'm sure your parents will feel better knowing you got your A-levels done.
Plus this still allows you to live at home, see your friends, etc. I'm not trying to say your brother wouldn't let you live with him but it may be a lot for him to take on.
Next summer or early May will be a big time because thats when some teams will hold trials. Earlier this summer I saw Marine FC were holding trials for the first team. Luton Town hold open trials every year KLC went to it this year.
Use these next two years (I think thats how long A-levels last) to build up your football CV. Try and play on a good team in your area (I know its hard to find one).
