Boys Under 17 Trials

After several years in the wilderness CYP is pleased to see the return of the Boys 4 Nations Football Competition, which will take place in June.  See below for information on the trials taking place shortly and details about the competition.  Venues for future trials will be confirmed shortly, but may depend on where players are from that are interested in attending.

Boys 4 Nations Soccer Trials will be taking place:

All trials are on Sundays
at Boucher Road Playing Fields, Belfast (10am – 12pm)

30th March 
6th April
13th April
27th April

Players must be born on or after 1/1/1997 and be available for the tournament:
Friday 27th June – Monday 30th June 2014

Due to little interest being registered from teams outside of the Greater Belfast area we’ve decided to keep the same central venue for all the trials.  This can be changed if there is sufficient interest from Clubs outside of Belfast – so please get in touch if your Club is interested in nominating players.

If you wish to nominate a player please download the 4 Nations Nomination Form 2014 and return it to or hand deliver to the CYP Office.
