Middlesex FA U16 Rep Team Trials Announced

    •  

The Middlesex FA is pleased to announce the open trial dates for our Under 16 Boys Representative Team.

Each season we look for the best Under 16 players to represent Middlesex in friendly and competitive matches over the course of the season. Trials are aimed at giving players the opportunity to showcase their ability to play at this elite level of youth football and we encourage attendance from players who play regularly for teams in the higher divisions of youth football, those that have been released from professional academies and players who have some other representative experience (e.g Schools FA).

As an open trial, we welcome players who may not have this level of experience to attend, though it is important to remember that County FA selection is a prestigious achievement and standards of selection are high.

Mindful of the playing standard criteria, we are happy to accept eligible boys self-nominating but we are more actively seeking recommendations and nominations from club managers, secretaries and/or coaches.
 
The Middlesex U16 Representative Team
 
We compete in the South East Counties Youth Championship against other County FA’s including Kent, Sussex and London. There is also the possibility of additional friendly fixtures being arranged during the year against professional academies. 
 
Players remain with their parent club throughout the season, but if a player is selected for Middlesex and a fixture clash with that of the player’s parent club league fixtures, clubs are given the opportunity to move or defer their game.

Therefore, clubs and coaches shouldn’t be concerned that a player’s selection for County Representation would be to the detriment of their own team.
