Update !!! Alfold FC Provisional Trial Day – New Date Saturday 18th July 2020

Alfold FC are delighted to announce their proposed date for a return to training for existing squad members & new players, this is a provisional date that will just move back in line with Government advice & easing of restrictions.

NOTE: NEW DATE SATURDAY 18TH JULY 2020

With a Pre-Season Schedule now in place we have set a start date knowing this is highly likely to be pushed back but set it as a provisional date that will just move back to a date that we are allowed.

The day will be invite only so please make contact to register an interest in attending using contact email below.

We will look to be proactive as restrictions are slowly lifted getting players in working with our coaches very probably in small groups and then larger groups with no contact and eventually that full return with contact upon which the Trial Day will take place.

We are currently training every Saturday in small groups, if you would like to attend a session please get in touch.

We are looking for Youth (U15’s upwards) to Senior players for season 20/21 for the following sides,

Men’s 1st Team – Southern Combination Football League – Premier Division

U23’s Team – Southern Combination Football League – Midweek

U18’s Team – Southern Combination Football League – Sunday’s

U16’s – Mid Sussex Youth Football League – Sunday’s

U16’s – Junior Premier League – Saturday’s

U17’s/U18’s – Junior Premier League – Saturday’s (new league with teams like Sutton United, Woking, Bracknell Town, Aldershot, Dartford, Ebbsfleet, Oxford City)

The Youth set up will consist of a squad of 40 players across the ages that will work with around 10 coaches, this group will work closely with the 1st Team squad throughout the season.

We have a belief that we will give young players the best opportunity to thrive & develop in a competitive & positive envioroment, offering a genuine pathway to 1st team football.

The structure for the day is set out below.
