Trialist Procedure

The Academy holds specific trial dates only for boys recommended by Club scouts.

If a player has not been approached by a scout but feels they are genuinely worthy of a trial then they are welcome to write into the Academy, providing as much information as possible about themselves and the team(s) they play for.

Please use the following criteria as a guideline for information to be supplied when writing to the Academy:

  •  Current club/school
  •  Age group/date of birth
  •  Fixture lists (including kick off times and venues)
  •  Contact telephone number and address

Each submission received will be considered on an individual basis.  Whilst we will endeavour to follow up on as many as we can, please note we cannot guarantee that every recommendation will result in a viewing by a scout.

All enquiries should be directed to:

Academy Local Recruitment Team
Everton Football Club
Finch Farm Training Ground
Finch Lane
Merseyside L26 3UE

*Please note that this trialist procedure applies only to residents within the Academy’s catchment area. Subject to Premier League Youth Development Rules, primary school-aged boys must reside within one hours’ travelling time of our Academy facility.
