Write about your Playing Ability (Min 50 words) : i am a very dedicated and hardworking footballer. i am capable of playing with experienced footballers as i play with over 20's as a kick about on sundays and also train with uefa b qualified coaches and have joined a county team and also a sunday team. i am true in what i do and put all the effort i can in to every thing i do. alot of friends, team mates, opposition, coaches, teachers have told me how capable i am of getting somewhere in a footballing career. numerous times i have saved my team by making saves or assisting goals. i can kick a ball out my hands between the 18 yard box in their half and the edge of the circle in their half, and off the floor i can mostly beet the half way line with height as well. i shout nearly all the time telling my defence what to do and using constructive criticism. i am very capable of what task i have been set and capable of playing with any players.
Why should an Academy Director give you a trial (Min 50 words) : they should give me a trial because i have the ability, height, confidence, attitude, strength, stamina and determination to make it to a pro footballer. i take every opportunity i can get to become closer and am always going uphill in ability. i would take academy football seriously like i do with all football, and would take trials seriously and do my very best to make it through trials and get somewhere.
