Trials

AFC Wimbledon Academy no longer holds open trials for new players. However, if you wish to apply for a trial with one of our age-groups please follow the guidance below.

U18 scholarships

We are NOT looking for any new players at this age-group during the season. Our squad is now full.

U19 Football & Education Programme

We are always looking for any new players at this age-group. To find out more, please visit the Football & Education Programme page.

Please send your footballing CV to collegefootball@afcwimbledon.ltd.uk. You will be contacted to confirm if you have been accepted or not for a trial. We will only accept school leavers who are looking to study for BTEC's at South Thames College alongside our football programme.

Please include the subject line: 'Football & Education Programme Trials' in your email.

U13 - U16 (youth phase)

Whilst most of our squads are full, we are always looking for new players of the correct standard.

Please send your footballing CV to youthtrials@afcwimbledon.ltd.uk. Please note that we will only accept trialists that have previously played at a similar high level (Professional clubs with references). We are unable to accept trialists that have not had this playing experience.

U9 - U12 (foundation phase)

Whilst most of our squads are full, we are always looking for new players of the correct standard.

Please send your footballing CV to youthtrials@afcwimbledon.ltd.uk. Please note that we will only accept trialists that have previously played at a similar high level (professional clubs with references) or have been highly recommended to us or whose CV demonstrates a high level of potential.

U7 or U8 (pre-academy)

Our pre-academy runs in six-week blocks. After each block the squads are reviewed and parents are advised on how to proceed. As such we are always looking for new talent from the local area & local leagues.

To apply to join the pre-academy, please send an email to youthtrials@afcwimbledon.ltd.uk with as much information on your son as possible and in particular the club he currently plays for.

Responding to trial requests

We receive a very high amount of trial requests every day. It may not always be possible to respond to every single one, we apologise for this in advance. However, each CV will be looked at and considered for trials.

We can only accept trialists that are deemed to be of the highest standard.
