Academy Player Talent Day

24 August 2020

Scunthorpe United's Academy will be holding a number of ‘Grassroots Talent Days’ for local Scunthorpe and district players to have the chance to showcase their footballing skills during the coming season.

All of the events are free to ensure that all children have the opportunity to attend. The first event to kick off the programme will be for this season’s Under-8 and Under-9 age groups - children going back to school in Year 3 and Year 4 this September. 

The first event will be held as follows:

Venue: The St Lawrence Academy, Doncaster Road, Scunthorpe, DN15 7DF 

Date: Tuesday, September 1st, 2020

Time: 1.00pm – 2.00pm

Age Group: Under-8s (School Year 3 in September 2020) and Under-9s (School Year 4 in September 2020)


The event will be held outdoor, so all players must report directly to the grass pitches at the St Lawrence Academy. Do not come on to the school site or to the academy office. All players should arrive ready to play and must wear shin pads during the coaching session and also bring a soft drink or water. Players should wear their own appropriate training kit and footwear.
