The Trust’s football programme will be hosting its annual trials at Lansdown in June.
Every year we offer boys and girls the opportunity to try out to represent BANES & Wiltshire and District schools level. Those fortunate enough to get through will participate in a unique programme that uses football as a medium to develop character as well as sporting attributes.
In addition to the weekly coaching, participants will have the chance to travel the world to play football and take part in environmental and social projects, the highlights of which from past projects can be found on our website. Since 2003, we have sent players to Africa, China, Sweden, Denmark, Italy, Spain, Holland, Belgium, France, Germany and Ireland!
Whilst we have had many players move onto professional clubs and make a living from football, it is not our aim, but a by-product. Indeed, if your sole focus is to become a professional football player, this is not the right programme for you.
There are no fees involved. So, we encourage anyone with a passion for the game, a drive to improve, and the courage to be challenged to come forward.

All trials will be at Lansdown Playing fields, 17:30 – 19:30.
There is a cafe on site for refreshments
