Bristol Rovers FC Academy runs teams from Under 9 to Under 18.
Development games are played against clubs in the South West and other academy clubs.
We also have Pre-Academy squads in the Under 7 and Under 8 age groups.
The club normally recruits players by using our team of scouts.
They are found in the Bristol area, Gloucestershire, Somerset and South Wales watching junior football games.
Players identified as talented are invited in for a trial period which lasts from 2- 6 weeks.
If the triallist impresses the club, they will be offered a contract which is registered with the Football League.
If you want to recommend a player to the club, please contact Alex Hinder, Head of Schoolboy Recruitment.
Please contact, Alex Hinder, by email:- [email protected]
It is always beneficial for a young player to be signed up to a junior football club, as then, it will be possible to send one of our scouts along to a game and watch him play.
If a player impresses the scout he may be contacted by them via the club manager and parent(s) in order to arrange a trial with the club.
