Could you be Town's next signing?

Take part in our trials and join Cole as a Shrewsbury Town player

12 June 2017

Shrewsbury Town are hosting trials for their Academy, Shadow Squads and Advanced Development Centres next month and you could join youngster Cole in becomming Town's next signing.

Cole came along to the trials last summer and after impressing the coaches, he is now on Shrewsbury’s books.

His mum Mel couldn’t be happier, saying: "We are incredibly proud of the opportunity Cole has been given with Shrewsbury Town. He has had so many fantastic experiences since his trials and his subsequent signing. We hope he can continue to develop, progress and ultimately achieve his dream"

Town’s Lead Foundation Phase Coach Ben King has also been impressed with Cole’s development, and added: "Cole came to the Academy and Shadow Squad trials last summer and really impressed us on the day, showing that he was comfortable on the ball and able to make quick decisions to release it or beat the player he was against.

“He was then invited into the Shrewsbury Town FC Pre-Academy, a environment for U6s to U8s to develop the skills required to hopefully become signed Academy players at U9.

“In his time in the Pre-Academy he has shown a number of strengths and then used them in games against the likes of Birmingham City FC, Southampton FC, Coventry City FC and Sheffield United FC, to name a few.

“He has been a perfect example of how players who work hard and develop their skills can work through from grassroots football into the Academy system."

This year our trials will take place on the following days:

July 3rd: Ages 7-8, 5pm-7pm

July 10th: Ages 9-10, 5pm-7pm

July 17th 11-12, 5pm-7pm
