Young Keepers Trial

THE Argyle Academy are holding open trials for all young goalkeepers in Devon and Cornwall next month.

The trials will take place on the artificial surface at Ivybridge Community College between 11am-1pm on Sunday, December 3, for Under 10s, Under 11s and Under 12s), and Sunday, December 10, for Under 13s, Under 14s and Under 15s. 

Registration is at 10.45am. 

Argyle’s Academy have a hugely successful record of producing professional goalkeepers, including current first-team captain Luke McCormick.

Recently, Christian Walton progressed through the Academy from Under-9 level to Under-18 and has since represented England at Under-19, Under-20s and Under-21 level after being sold to Premier League Brighton & Hove Albion. 

Mike Cooper is the latest goalkeeper from the Pilgrims' Academy to play for our first-team, making his debut against Blackburn Rovers in October as a second-half substitute and keeping a clean sheet. 

All goalkeepers between Under-10 and Under-15 should register their interest in attending the trial with Head of Academy Recruitment Chris Harrison on and confirm their attendance.
