Open and trial day for future stars of the football pitch
A PETERBOROUGH football club is inviting aspiring players in the city to learn more about its academic scholarship at an open day.
Peterborough Northern Star Football Club holds the event on Saturday, May 26, at the Focus Centre, in Chestnut Avenue, Dogsthorpe, at 11.30am.
Prospective students will be able to talk to tutors about the club’s academic scholarship, inspect its facilities, but also have a trial for the programme.
The club’s director of football Domenico Genovese said: “The main aim of the football academy is to encourage more 16 to 17-year-olds to play semi-professional or professional football. If you are highly driven and motivated, 16 or 17-yearold on or before August 31, have the qualifications to meet our entry requirements and have a high level of footballing ability, this could be a fantastic, unique footballing experience for you.”
Students would have the opportunity to improve their fitness and football skills, participate in games and gain coaching qualifications.
