Following the fantastic success of our first team, Torquay United are challenging the next generation to raise their game and expectations in order to challenge the best academies throughout the country.

In July, we will be offering open trials for the our Under-11 and Under-12 sides. This is a fantastic opportunity to develop their football ability under a UEFA ‘B’ qualified lead coach and play against EFL academy sides. If your child is starting Year 6 /7 next year and you think they have what it takes, then please drop us an email via for further details.

Our coaches, Ian Ridge, Paul Vallance, Karl Waller and Alan Briard all have excellent knowledge of local teams and players, and with excellent training facilities on offer, the club is on the lookout for new players of the highest quality, commitment and desire to develop as the next future stars for the club.

With small numbers available in each age group and pre-season just around the corner, please get in contact ASAP to get involved in this fantastic opportunity.
