England trials are a great success
St Georges Park Welcomes England Transplant Football Club
St Georges Park in Buron-Upon-Trent was the ideal venue to host the first-ever England transplant FC trials. A host of transplant and dialysis recipients from around the UK attended on a lovely spring St Georges’s day. They were taking their first steps on a journey that could see them progress onto a Senior Men’s, Women’s or a development team.
Finding Talent for the Future
Representatives from the England Transplant Football Association, alongside the coaching team, were on hand to evaluate the player’s potential. They were following the recognised Talent id Pathway, finding players they could mould into the England DNA playing philosophy.
The ETFA team focuses on identifying and developing players with strong characteristics that will fit with the core values of an England team. The FA Four corners model evaluates a player's technical skill, physical, tactical and psychological attributes.
Football For All
It was terrific to see transplant players from 16 years to 50 playing alongside each other in a friendly but competitive environment. Throughout the day, everyone supported and cheered each other while taking part in the fitness and skills tests. Building bonds that are sure to last forever.
The England Transplant football trials were rounded off with two 30 minute seven-a-side games officiated by a professional FA Referee. Offering a chance for the players to showcase their skills in a competitive match and demonstrate why they should be the next England transplant football player.
