Welcoming in the 2021-2022 season

As the new academic year is upon us, Staffordshire Schools and Colleges FA are delighted to announce some of the trial dates and friendly fixtures that will take place throughout September and October. We are thrilled to be able to get back up and running following Covid-related disruptions to the past 2 seasons, and cannot wait to welcome both familiar and new faces for what is sure to be a year of exciting schools football filled with opportunities and enjoyment.

Remaining trials for the 2021-2022 season will be taking place in September - the only way a player can be nominated for trials is by their PE teacher. All trials take place at Stafford Town FC, with the trial dates and times found below:
