Upcoming Football Trials

When and Where

The PFSA UK Football Trials hold trial days in and around the country with our primary base at UCLan’s World Class facilities at their Sports Arena in Preston. UCLan has internationally recognised facilities and is one of the Worlds leading departments in Sports Science which is perfect as the PFSA aim to add further metrics to our trials days by partnering up with VXSports and providing sporting diagnostics like the professionals!

Please note the closest accommodation for the PFSA UK Football Trials is the IBIS Hotel, Garstang Road, Preston..

Who will attend on the day

The more appropriate question to ask is who does not attend PFSA UK Football Trials. We have a network of thousands of football scouts as members of the PFSA. We will have our co-founders and senior scouts at leading football clubs attending. All players highlighted on the day will then be sent to our network.

What happens on the day

The PFSA Football Trials are a full day event from 9am to 4pm. The AM consists of all ages coaching then as we move into the afternoon we start  with the trial matches. Snacks and refreshments are avilable to buy on the day to rehydrate and fill up on that much needed energy boost.

Video Analysis

The PFSA UK Football Trials will be using top of the range video analysis software to give our trialist the option to record their trails day experience. Having your skills on video gives you the edge over the competition and is vital in standing out from the crowd. One of the main reasons the PFSA decided to launch our football trials was off the back of hundreds of football CV’s sent to us every month. Even though a football CV is useful information in gauging the level at which you have played at, it was always difficult to validate the skills on paper. The videos that were sent through always grabbed the attention of the team at the PFSA and our football scouts, leading to the inspiration behind providing a video analysis option.


The PFSA Football Trials costs £75, which involves much more than a simple trials day. The PFSA Coaches have and currently work for some of the top clubs in Europe. PFSA Lead Coach Dean Whitehouse currently works for Manchester United Academy and has overseen the development of some of the UK’s top talent including Danny Welbeck and Marcus Rashford to name a few. We also use our match day footage to send to our partner clubs who couldn’t make it on the day, increasing your opportunities beyond the football trials day itself.
