County Trials 2017-18

Staffordshire School's FA's County sides had unprecedented success last season lifting three trophies, one national and two regional as well as reaching three semi finals. The players did the Association proud and the journey starts all over again in July when the first trials will be held.

Dates and venues, nomination forms and information will be sent out to schools in the next 10 days or so.  There are opportunities for the most talented players to represent their County and play at an excellent level on good grounds and in a controlled disciplined environment.

It is hoped that schools will nominate their best players and that all schools will consider sending players ,as currently only about 60% of schools make nominations, which means that some players miss the chance to play county football. Last years national champions the Under 16 Boys had five players in their debut season so each team is selected on merit and not on past performance.

The north of the County is an area where there is the largest population and urban area but the smallest number of nominating schools.

County Football is a fantastic experience and one which should be enjoyed if your son or daughter is talened enough.

Details will be posted here in due course.
