Player Trials at Eastleigh FC

Official Eastleigh FCEastleigh FC of the Blue Square South will be holding trials for players on Wednesday 6th June 2012. These trials will give players the opportunity to be assessed by our UEFA qualified coaching staff and give them the opportunity of representing Eastleigh FC.

Eastleigh has a pedigree for producing Football League players with Brett Williams (Reading FC) and Aaron Martin (Southampton FC) making the grade after impressing at non-league level. In the 2011/12 season we helped young players secure deals with Will Aimson, 17 and Josh Helm, 16 signing contracts with Hull City and Swindon Town. 
 
These trials will give players the opportunity to showcase their talents and receive constructive feedback from Ian Baird and the coaching team at the club.

What we are looking for

We are looking for players aged 16+ who believe they have what it takes to play in the Football League. You may have been released for a football scheme, or perhaps you’ve never been given that opportunity to shine. If so this event is for you.

Format of the day

The day will be split in to 2 sections. In the morning we will conduct physical and technical tests for all players, this will produce quantitative data so we can compare you against other trialists and players within the club. In the afternoon you will be given the opportunity to shine in 11v11 game, this will be assessed by the 1st team coaching staff as well as our reserve and youth team coaches.

Possible Pathways

Players will have the opportunity to earn paid contracts to play at the club and compete in the Blue Square South (Step 6).

For players who we feel have potential there are opportunities to compete in our reserve squads. Here we have 2 teams competing in the Wyvern Premier and Suburban Premier Leagues. They play teams such as AFC Wimbledon, Woking FC and Sutton United. These are strong squads who have produced players capable of earning scholarships at pro clubs.

For younger players (16+) we offer football education schemes where you can represent the club in the Football Conference (Youth) league and study at the same time.

AFC Fylde 2-2 Eastleigh

Ryan Broom scored twice to help maintain Eastleigh's unbeaten run, which now stretches to nine games in the National League.

Spitfires boss Andy Hessenthaler reflecting on the point said: “I think it was a fair result.

“The way we started the game was tremendous. We pinned them back and we got the goal.

“But Fylde are a good side. They’re young, they have very good movement and they take risks. It’s hard to stop their flow of play, but we dug in and defended really well.

“They equalised, but we responded straight afterwards with an absolutely fantastic goal. It was a sublime finish by Ryan who had an exceptional afternoon on his first start.

“It (Fylde's late equaliser) was a little bit frustrating when we were so close to getting all three points, but this was a good point and a valuable one against a decent side.

“My target when I took over was two points a game. I’ve had eight games and we’re actually two points ahead of that target with 18.

“We’ve now got to build on that …
