Whilst the 1st team have been busy getting their pre-season underway last weekend at Lancaster University, behind the scenes the club have been busy putting plans in place for a full U18 youth team for the 2019/20 season.
The new U18’s will be a big step in the club’s performer pathway strategy, ensuring the Dolly Blues have a conveyor belt of local young talent coming through the system at the Giant Axe. With a nucleus of players already recruited, additional local players are currently being invited to come along and trial to be part of the new u18 side. The team will represent the club in the FA Youth Cup and will play in an FA sanctioned league as well as players getting the opportunity to get midweek action under the floodlights in the Development Squad league against the likes of Barrow, Kendal and Workington.
The u18’s will train alongside the 1st team and Development squad during the week once the season is underway and a trial / open training session for the new squad will be on Saturday 20th July 2019 at Lancaster University, starting at 10am.
Interested players aged 15-18 should contact Tom Woods

The club are also currently working on an additional opportunity for school leavers to undertake a scholarship scheme alongside the u18’s which would include full time education and full time football, further information will be available in due course
