Men's Football

hello, we are the essex blades men's football club


 

Men's Football Club Trials - 2018/19

There will be a limited number of spaces at each trial, and trialists must pre-book to guarantee their space at a session. A £3 trial fee is required per player to help contribute to the cost of pitch hire and refreshments. Spaces can be booked for your chosen session below.

Trialists can turn up and pay £3 on the day, although a space is not guaranteed due to a maximum capacity of 40 people per trial session. Trials will take place on the Grass Pitches, so please wear appropriate boots. Shinpads must be worn. Students are only eligible to trial once, to allow everyone an equal opportunity.

 

Football (or soccer) is a team sport played between 2 teams of 11 players and is one of the world's most popular sports. The game is played on a rectangular field with a goal at each end. The object of the game is to score by getting the ball into the opposing goal, and the team that scores the most goals by the end of the match wins.
