Knowsley U19 Dallas Cup Trial Dates Announced

Liverpool City Council


Knowsley Council and Volair have announced the trial dates and times for the 2018 Knowsley Youth U19 Dallas Cup squad.

Trials are open to any boy who lives in the borough of Knowsley who was born on or after 1 January 1999.

The squad participates in the prestigious Dallas Cup International Youth Football tournament, which takes place in Texas USA over Easter. The world’s best youth football teams participate in the cup with the likes of Everton, Liverpool, Real Madrid and AC Milan participating.

The team is only formed for this tournament, which they won in 2011 and reached the final in last year. Whilst in the USA there is potential to gain football scholarships at an American college or university, but similarly there have been players who have gone on to have successful professional careers or be signed by academies after being involved with the programme.

Last year alone, every squad member was offered a scholarship opportunity in the USA with one player being signed to a professional English academy.

Dates and times for the trails:

• Friday 29 September, 7pm-9pm @ Kirkby Leisure Centre 3G (L32 8SA)

• Friday 6 October, 7pm-9pm @ Halewood Academy 3G (L26 1UU)

• Friday 13 October, 7pm-9pm @ Huyton Arts & Sports 3G (L36 6DG)

• From Friday 20 October, they will be based at Prescot Soccer Centre 3G every Friday, 7pm-9pm (L35 5AD)
