U8s Academy Trials

15 January 2024

The Oldham Athletic Academy will be holding an open trial for Year 3 / Under 8s boys.

The trials are to select players for our Academy squad and new Advanced Training Centre (ATC) which operates for the first time as part of an enhanced Academy structure this season.

Eligible youngsters will currently be in Year 3 at school and will be born between September 2015 - August 2016.

Session details will be confirmed by email upon completion of the application form below.

The deadline for registrations is Thursday 18 January at 8pm.

• We are looking for the next generation of locally based football talent who already play at a high level but are looking to further improve their skills and techniques under the guidance of our UEFA Academy qualified coaches.

• In its earliest stages, the ATC will have four or five sessions per month with a fixed £30 monthly subscriptions fee, payable by direct debit, so it is important the player/parent can make this commitment.

• Throughout the season, the ATC will play friendly matches against the Oldham Athletic Academy registered squad for assessment purposes as well as games against other elite groups.

• Boys with potential will be invited to the club’s existing licensed EPPP Academy squad for an agreed assessment period.

• All ATC players will be encouraged to continue to play for their grassroots club.

• If you live within thirty minutes travel time of Boundary Park (OL1 2PA) and wish to register your interest at Under 8 level (2023/24), please follow the link provided below or scan the QR code to submit your application. There are a limited number of spaces, so please apply early to avoid disappointment.

• Register here:

If the player is allocated a place, a confirmation email with full details will be sent two or three days before the event.

Open trials for other age groups will be announced in due course.
