Leeds United are holding more open trials at the Academy this spring.

The Leeds Academy will again be hosting trials. Per the club’s official website:

Leeds United Academy will be holding open trials during the 2018 Easter Holiday.

Trials will be held for school years 1-6 and 7-10 and the purpose of the event is to potentially recruit any promising players to our Academy system.

Check it out if you or someone you know might have what it takes to make it in the Academy. They’ve done plenty of these so far this year, so they’re obviously looking to sign up local talent.

On to the links.
