Weymouth FC To Re-launch Under 18's Side

It looks like England aren't the only football team looking to youth for the future.

Weymouth FC are now bringing back their under 18's side.

They're holding trials in July to look for players to form a team to compete in the South West Counties Youth League.

You need to be 16 years old by 31st August, 2014 and have not had your 18th birthday by the same date.

The trials are open to players from across the county.

The SWC is made up of top youth teams, including Bristol Academy, Cirencester Academy and Bath City.

Experienced youth team coach Mickey Lawrence together with Ren Richmond will be taking charge of the young Terra's.

Mickey told Wessex FM:

"One of the young lads at the Terra's as we speak, he was Captain of the First team last season. He came through the youth set up and he was quite a star player for us in the Under 18's when we were last in the Southern Counties League.  They happened to win Division 2 - so it produces some good talent."

The first trial takes place at Redlands on Tuesday 15th July from 7-8.30pm and on Thursday 17th July at the same venue and the same time.

The Terra's Under 18's are also looking for sponsors for the new season.
