On Friday 9th January, 32 boys arrived at Lilleshall NSC for the last 32 ESFA trials. Following fitness testing and training on Friday afternoon, the management team hosted a lecture on ESFA U18 International football. Guest speaker Rob Gilroy (ESFA U18 player 2013), delivered an inspirational talk to the aspiring players. Rob was a fantastic role model for ESFA and we were all moved by his eloquence and motivational words.

Despite the blustery weather conditions, two competitive games were played against the RAF and Navy and two good performances resulted in a 2-0 win v RAF and 5-0 win v Navy.

On Sunday morning, the two ESFA squads played against each other and despite fatigue, played out an entertaining game with seven goals being scored.

We would like to say thank you to the management team and selectors for their valuable expertise and support throughout this international process.
The management team will continue to build on their key message to the players, based on the following values:

  • Character
  • Standards
  • Work Ethic
  • Team Ethic
  • Trust
  • Enjoyment

Our season will be built around them as we move forward together.
