Assessment Trials 2022 | Registration Open

Registration for players for the 2022 LFE Assessment Trials is now open. Please click the link below to register your interest to play.

This year’s trials are set to take place over three dates at regional venues, which are as follows:

  • Tuesday 24th May (NORTH)

    Crown Oil Arena
    Sandy Lane
    Rochdale OL11 5DR

*Please note that kick-off times will be between 1 pm and 5 pm, but may be subject to change.


The events are open to those who are about to complete their apprenticeship programme or are coming to the end of their first professional contract (i.e. in your Under-19 year).

Positions will be filled on a first come first served basis (please note, later registrants are less likely to secure their preferred playing position and venue). Players are only eligible to attend one trial day. The eligibility policy can be downloaded here.


All games will be filmed and streamed live via LFE’s Facebook page, while full games will be available after the events via LFE’s YouTube channel.

The games will be analysed and individual player highlight packages will be made available to players free of charge via LFE’s Hudl recruitment page for further promotion to scouts/clubs.


You will need to obtain the password to complete the registration form – this has been supplied to all Academy Managers, Education Officers and all LFE Regional Officers.
