Cambridge United set to host trials for the club's Shadow Scholarship scheme for boys aged 16-18 at Abbey Pools Leisure Centre on Wednesday 31st August (5:30pm).
Run in conjunction with Cambridge Regional College, the Shadow Scholarship offers talented footballers the chance to receive both regular professional coaching from UEFA level coaches, and a first class education to open further opportunities such as university.
The Shadow Scholarship has been up and running for four years and has already proved successful, with a record number of students going onto University and higher education as a result of the course last year.
The scheme has also given opportunities for students to coach within the Cambridge United youth development system at Soccer Centres, Soccer Schools, RDCs and even at Shadow Academy level.
Meanwhile, a handful of students have also represented the U's for the Youth Team, including Harry Darling and Thomas Knowles who recently signed a full time academy scholarship with the club having excelled on the shadow scholarship.
