London Youth Games Football – For Current U13 And U14 Boys

Message from Elaine Cahill, Sports Development Officer, Education, Children’s and Cultural Services, London Borough of Richmond upon Thames

My name is Elaine and I work with the Sports Development Team in Richmond. London Youth Games is the largest annual youth sporting event in Europe. The 33 London boroughs compete against each other in over 30 different sports of which Football is one of them. Most of you will have received an email from me previously regarding London Youth Games and you all should have received a poster in the post regarding the upcoming Football trials. 

Team Richmond struggle every year to find a boys and girls football team and this year is no different. The Team Richmond trials will be held tomorrow evening Wednesday 1 May from 6.30pm – at Lincoln Field, which is located across the bridge from Twickenham Academy, Percy Road, Whitton, TW2 6JW. 

To be eligible to trial young people must live or go to school in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames and be born between 01/09/98 and 31/08/00 (School Year 8 and 9). 

Could you please pass this information onto the boys and girls in your club who would be eligible to trial? 

If tomorrow is too late notice to attend, they are more than welcome to attend the following Wednesday 8 May from 6.00pm – 7.00pm. Training will be held weekly until the competition at Crystal Palace on Saturday 6 July (boys) and Sunday 7 July (girls) 

If your club members are interested, if they could complete the online application form available from that would be great, application forms will be available at the trial and training sessions also. 

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me 

Kind regards,
