GB Junior Open Practice dates announced


Yesterday, BAFA announced the details for the GB Junior trials:

GB Lions Juniors announcing the first of a series of open practices for 2013.

There will be 4 one day practices that are open to all.

These will be called ‘Open Practices’ and essential a combination of ‘tryout’ and ‘practices’ for an international match later in the year.  Players with a serious interest in making the squad should attempt to attend all camps.  The Open Practices will be used to determine the list for invites to the GB Camps at the end of the year, in preparation for the friendly game and 2014 competition.

Lions Head Coach Damian Anderson, explained “The benefit of the open practice sessions is twofold – The GB staff get to see as many players as possible in game situations..” “…whilst the players get to compete alongside the best players in the country and take advantage of a strong coaching staff, looking to improve grassroots football skills…”.

The practices will be spread throughout the country to give as many young players as possible access to international quality coaching, we highly recommend that Junior players attend even if they don't have intentions of representing their country quite yet as it will be a great opportunity to get on the radar for future years and improve football skills.


The first two events will be held in Hertfordshire on 26th January and Doncaster on 23rd February with future ones in Scotland and the Midlands later in the year.

Attendees must be at least 16 years old on the day of the event and have a DOB no later than 1st January 1994 (i.e. if you were born in 1993 or later you don't qualify)

  1. You mean - "a DOB not before 1st January 1994", not "a DOB no later than 1st January 1994" - that is precisely what you DON'T mean.
