Almost 70 players have been selected for the Sky Sport Future Warriors’ North Island under-16 trial at Cornwall Park on Saturday, October 15.
Sky Sport Future Warriors manager Athens Henare said a total of more than 350 players had registered for this trial and the under-18 trial to follow on October 16.
“The process of selecting the local talent was very difficult,” he said.
“We’re thrilled with talent on offer and are grateful for everyone who registered.
“To the players who were unsuccessful this time round, we encourage you to be involved in other competitions throughout the year as there will be other opportunities available soon.”
Henare asked any selected player who becomes unavailable to notify staff at firstname.lastname@example.org so other players can be called in to trial.
Players need to assemble at Cornwall Park by 11.30am on October 15 with the trial due to kick off at 12.30pm.
All players need to bring their own shorts, socks, boots, mouth guard and a large water bottle. They also need to organise their own strapping.
Following the trial Sky Sport Future Warriors management will speak with players and families as a group to explain the next steps for future pathway opportunities.
