Friday 5th July – Kingsbury School – 4:30pm until 6:00pm
The 2013-14 Erdington and Saltley squad is almost ready to be presented to the world’s press! Over the course of Friday 21st June and Friday 28th June, approximately 150 footballers from Years 4 and 5 attended round one of trials. This has now been reduced down to a final 36 and these boys will attend the final trial this Friday.
Myself and Liam, plus Coach Jason, coach Gary and the 2012/13 captain Jayden Ward were very impressed with the quality and effort of the players on show during round one of the trials. We’re all exceptionally excited about the footballing delight that is sure to be served up this week.
It’s great to look back and think how far the district has come in the space of just one year. Last year was the first time that the Erdington and Saltley District had put out a team at primary school level for a good number of years. Furthermore at last years trials there were 70 children from approximately 15 different schools. This year almost 150 boys from over 30 different schools attended the trials. Wow!
A massive ‘thank you’ must go out to all those mentioned above who helped at the trials, plus Mrs Sandra Ward, without whom I would be an administrative disaster! Plus thanks to all of the teachers who helped spread the word about this year’s trials!
Up the Ton!
