Late Birthday Project are holding open football trials at their centres across Surrey and Sussex to identify footballing talent in the under-six to under-14 age groups.
Late Birthday Project (LBP) centres are in Dorking, Godalming, Walton-on-Thames, Crawley and Haywards Heath.
LBP combats the significant ‘Relative Age Effect’ in youth football, by providing a professional academy environment, coaching and opportunities for players born between January and August*.
The ‘Relative Age Effect’ is proven to have a major impact on the development of young footballers born later in their year groups, so our objective is to allow these players to flourish without the influence of older, bigger players who might usually dominate.
LBP players have secured places in the professional academies at Fulham, Brighton, AFC Wimbledon and Crystal Palace, representing county teams including Surrey and Sussex, and making significant advances in their club football.
*Players born between September and December can join our Thursday and Saturday Dorking centres but will develop their technical game by playing a year up, at the ALL-BIRTHDAY SESSIONS.
