12002314_10153560773938119_7501719390978236600_nTHE cycle of Open Trials in February half-term will include a session at Carn Brea Leisure Centre in Redruth for the Plymouth Argyle Football Education scholarship.

Year 11 students are encouraged to come down for the trial on Tuesday, February 16 from 11am – 2pm. It will be an indoor session involving current players on the Futsal programme, who only recently returned from a tour of the USA.

We are looking for young players of school-leaving age with a passion to play football at a high level to take academic studies under the guidance of Plymouth Argyle, whilst at the same time honing their footballing talents.

The programme sees 16-18 years olds participate in a number of academic studies alongside a football scholarship run by Plymouth Argyle. The programme is designed to give people excellent academic qualifications that can take them into universities, overseas universities, employment and work places.

In addition to this, the programme provides talented and enthusiastic youngsters with the opportunity to train and play as a football scholar in tandem with their academic studies.

Previous scholars have progressed into the professional game, climbed the football pyramid and also gone overseas, whilst others have improved on their football ability and continue to play at a high standard in local football.

The programme does not prevent players from training or playing for their local teams. In fact, we encourage this and would like players to stay within local football. The programme would not affect your games or training schedule, as the course is an academic programme and runs during term-time.
