I'm not having much luck. I did find the local youth league Russel Foster Tyne and Wear http://www.rfyouthleagues.co.uk/league.aspx?leagueid=90

I also found a number of Northern League teams around your area. It probably wouldn't hurt to email some of the clubs and ask about a trial or just if you can train with the team. You never know. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northern_F ... _(England) If you scroll down you can find the names of the teams and click on them to go to the clubs website.

Edit: I checked some of the Nothern League teams websites and I think its worth a shot emailing them about first team trials. Some of the guys in the team picture look around 18-20 imo, I'm not very good at guessing ages though lol.

Maybe try the Durham County U18 League http://www.durhamfa.com/FixturesAndResu ... 8s+League/

Here are some clubs in the Midlands looking for players. Taken from the Midlands Junior Premier League website.

Due to long term injuries and players progressing onto other clubs Burton Colts (formerly Burton Albion Juniors) u18's are currently seeking new players to strengthen our Youth squad.

Having enjoyed our first season at under 16s last year we are looking to build on the success we had in this league

We train and play our home matches in Burton on Trent , Staffs

PLEASE BE AWARE THIS IS NOT THE BURTON ALBION FC - SCHOOL OF EXCELLENCE

please contact the manager David Tattersall UEFA "B" coach david_tattersall@tiscali.co.uk


Kidderminster Harriers U18's Developement Team are seeking players to complete their squad for the forthcoming season. If you are currently playing on a saturday or sunday afternoons and relish the challenge of the MJPFL please read on. We are able to provide excellent coaching, superb facilities and an ideal opportunity to develope as a player.
Training commences on Friday 6th August 6-00 till 7-30 pm at Sion Hill Kidderminster. DY10 2XT. If you are interested then please ring or text Phillip Butler 07798 637373 or phillipbutler3378@tiscali.co.uk.

What do you reccomend I do?
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.
Or
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).
