Southampton Football Club Academy will be holding a free goalkeeping session this summer for those that have aspirations to become Saints’ next number one.

The open session will take place on Friday 18th August 2017 for boys in the Under-13 and Under-14 age groups for the 2017/2018 season.

The sessions are open to any boy that meets the following criteria:

  • Is Under-13 or Under-14 for the 2017/18 season (school year 8 and 9 from September 2017)
  • Plays in goal for a grassroots football club (local Sunday League or JPL League)
  • Lives within 1 hour 30 minutes of Staplewood Training Ground

The open session will be run by Southampton FC Academy goalkeeping coaches and recruitment staff, and will provide an opportunity for young goalkeepers to showcase their talents, with the possibility of being invited in to trial at Southampton FC’s category one academy. 

The session will last for two hours during which the boys will experience a variety of activities undertaken by our academy goalkeepers. The time and venue of the session will be confirmed via e-mail when you apply.
