Venue address: 3G pitches at Gunnersbury Park Sports Hub, Popes Lane, London, W3 8LQ (car parking charges apply).

We are delighted to invite your child to attend a trial session at Brentford FC Community Sports Trust and this is available for both outfield and goalkeepers, with specific training being provided. Existing players in our football programme do not need to re-trial.

Successful players will be invited to join our football development programme at the appropriate tier in our football pathway at either our venues in Gunnersbury Park, Hampton or Uxbridge (subject to capacity).

Players will participate in a 90-minute training session consisting of 45-minutes of technical practices and 45-minutes of conditioned small-sided games. Goalkeepers will train with our goalkeeper coach for the first 45-minutes.

Places are strictly limited to 24 per school year and no refunds will be permitted if your child misses the trial day.
