Apply for a trial with the Charlton academy
In an effort to avoid your disappointment, Charlton Athletic Football Club will not invite a player in for a trial unless one of our scouts has seen him play and thinks he is of the required standard.
Our scouts continually watch the best standard, and teams, of football in their allocated areas, and they will only recommend a player for trials who they feel has a high level of all-round ability, along with the attributes required to become a professional footballer.
Players should be playing regularly for a club. Players aged 16-18 should be playing at a competitive standard (we would suggest at least semi professional non-League football).
Players over the age of 18 should not send their details to the club's academy set-up, but rather contact the club's scouting department: email@example.com.
You should also hold a British or EU passport, or have 'leave to remain' in this country.
If the above applies to you, then please e-mail your details to the academy scouting department - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Details to include in your letter:
1. Your name
2. Your address
3. Your contact telephone number
4. Your age
5. Your date of birth
6. Your height
7. The position you play
8. Your footballing CV or background
9. Your current team
10. The fixtures of your current team
11. Any other relevant information
12. Confirmation that you hold a British or EU passport, or have 'leave to remain' documentation
It is important that you enclose your FIXTURES, including dates, kick-off times and venues. This information will then be passed on to one of our scouts in your area, who will report back to the chief scout/head of recruitment with his recommendation.
If you are not playing for a club, we cannot send a scout to watch you and therefore cannot consider your application.
We cannot recommend clubs for you to join or answer further questions.
We will only contact you if our scout recommends you for trials after seeing you play.
