Trials at Celtic Football Club Academy
Celtic Football Club Academy does not hold open trial dates. We have a large scouting network with scouts watching games and tournaments in and around Scotland.
This is our main source of recruiting young and talented players.
Should you wish to be considered for a trial, the following procedure will apply.
Players between the age of 6 and 18 years are asked to send their CV by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, including the following details:
- Your name
- Your age & date of birth
- Your contact address and telephone number
- The current club you play for
- The position you play
- A list of forthcoming fixtures you will be playing in
On receipt of your email, the recruitment staff will make a decision as to whether a scout will watch your games.
If the scout feels that the player has shown potential to play at Academy level, an approach will be made to the manager of your club as well as your parents and you will be invited in for a trial with Celtic Football Club.
The trial will last for a maximum of six weeks during which time the player will train and play with the current registered players in your age group.
During your trial period you will be monitored by your age group coach and recruitment staff.
A decision will be made within three to six weeks whether to sign you as a Celtic player or release you from your trial and monitor you at your Saturday / Sunday club.
If you do not receive a reply within 14 days please assume your request for a trial with Celtic Football Club has been unsuccessful.
