Local youngsters in Year 11 and 12 have the opportunity to enrol into the Stevenage FC development and college schemes, which includes full time education in a professional football environment.
The club runs two schemes, one in Cheshunt and one in Stevenage. Both follow exactly the same syllabus with location being the only difference. Watch our promotional video below to find out more:
The football club has two upcoming trials for 2018/2019:
In recent years both schemes have had significant success, with Macsen Fraser coming out of the Marriott's scheme, now a second year scholar at the football club.
Meanwhile, Jason Rice - now a member of the Cheshunt First Team - graduated last season from the Cheshunt scheme.
Both dates will include a presentation prior to the trials as a way of informing students and parents about what the scheme and course will include.
All participants are to bring their own training kit and shin pads. Both trials will be played on 3G surfaces, so be sure to bring suitable footwear for the pitches.
Trialists are also advised to bring their own drinks and refreshment for the day. Any other details on what to bring to the day will be showcase on the online registration forms.
