Player Development Centre on the lookout for talented youngsters!

This is your chance to take your game to the next level and receive a high standard of coaching with our Player Development Centre!

The Burnley FC Player Development Centre is run by Burnley FC in the Community and is the first tier of our youth development pathway.

The centres offer young and ambitious players aged 9-16 the chance to train weekly, coaching with UEFA licenced coaches at venues situated in key areas around Burnley.

These sessions are specifically designed for young players who need additional, high-level coaching to compliment what they currently receive with their grassroot club. Not only will this improve the players all round game, but it will also help them develop tactically, physically and psychologically.

Unfortunately, we cannot accept any beginners who are just looking to play recreational football to these sessions.

Our trials for the 21/22 season will take place at the following:

U15 & U16 trials – Nelson & Colne College

Wednesday 25th August – 8-10pm

Wednesday 1st September – 7-9pm

U9, U10 & U11 trials – Prairie Sports Village

Thursday 26th August – 5-6pm

Thursday 2nd September – 5-6pm

U12, U13 & U14 trials – Nelson & Colne College

Friday 27th August – 6-8pm

Friday 3rd September – 6-8pm

All trials will last 90 minutes and will be a combination of technical based coaching and small-sided games. We believe that all our football sessions should be fun with our coaches creating a relaxed environment, allowing players to show us their footballing abilities whilst enjoying themselves.

For any players unable to attend these dates, we will also be hosting open training sessions throughout the season.
