If you are aspiring to become the next big star on the football field then Peterborough Regional College (PRC) could help you on your way!

The local college’s Football Development Centre work in partnership with Peterborough United Football Club and provide an ideal solution to combining post-16 study with football training and coaching taught by both the industry specialist tutors at PRC and also ex POSH players and trainers like Dave Farrell and Worrell Sterling.

The large further education college delivers a range of full-time, sport based BTEC qualifications including sport and exercise science. The Football Development Centre includes a full-time BTEC in Sport either at a level 2 or 3, along with an extra 12 hours per week for dedicated football training, coaching and matches as a team for the British Colleges Sport league. This qualification can lead onto a wide range of options including university or training, employment or football trials with other clubs.

The next trial dates for the Peterborough Regional College Football Development Centre will take place on the Monday August 27 and 28 August 2012 at the college grounds, Park Crescent.

All applicants need to report to the main reception at Peterborough Regional College for 9.30am, to get visitor badges and be signed in, and the trials will take place on site. The trials will be over two days and involve two sessions per day, taking place indoor and outdoor, so the appropriate kit will need to be worn. Both days will include training both from 10am-12pm and 2pm-4pm, so applicants may wish to bring refreshments or money for both days.

Those attending will preferably have completed a college application for this September already before they attend the trials, but if not, the Information Centre staff at the college can help with this after.
