Weston AFC have been included in the newly-formed Junior Premier League South.

WESTON AFC is proud to announce their inclusion in the newly-formed Junior Premier League South.

The league consists of junior teams from some of the best non-league clubs in the south of the country, including Newport County, Gloucester and Worcester.

The junior section is a new venture that is designed to prepare players to progress into one of the top non-league youth teams in the country (Under-19s compete in the Conference Alliance Premier Division, the highest level of non-league youth football).

The junior teams will train twice a week with FA Level 2, 3 and 4 coaches who will be overseen by UEFA A license coach and ex-professional footballer, Ryan Northmore.

Training will begin in August 2011 and finish in May 2012. Matches will be played on a Saturday in the Junior Premier League South.

Weston academy director Ryan Northmore said: “The new junior section is a fantastic opportunity to start working with talented players at an earlier age. With the new full time youth team starting in September there is now a clear pathway between junior and Conference football.”

This opportunity is available to the best young players for a one-off signing on fee of £160, which includes all coaching costs, facility use and tracksuit, training kit, replica shirt and a Seagulls season ticket. There are no other costs throughout the year and players can still play with their local junior teams, while being a member of Weston junior squads.

The second round of trials for selection will be held at Weston Football Club, Winterstoke Road, Weston, BS24 9AA on the following dates - Under-16s, July 25, 1-5pm; Under-15s, July 26, 1-5pm; Under-14s, July 27, 1-5pm.

If you wish to attend the trials, you must register your interest by calling Weston Football Club on 01934 621618. Please bring kit, boots, shin pads, and water bottle.
