THE St Albans City Football Academy is holding trials for its youth development scheme next month.

The scheme, which is run in partnership with Oaklands College, has provided the players for St Albans City's successful run in the FA Youth Cup this season where the team upset the form books with wins over Thurrock and Colchester United before being edged out on penalties by Wycombe Wanderers.

Successful graduates from the scheme include Rob Magwood and Ross Dedman who have become regular fixtures in Steve Castle's first team squad.

The first trial day is on Wednesday, March 24, from 4-6pm at the Smallford Campus of Oaklands College.
