Norwich City FC is offering the next generation of football stars the opportunity to take part in trials as part of their partnership with Ely College.

The Norwich City Football and Education Shadow Scholarship gives current year 11 students the chance to study a full-time Cambridge Technical OCR Level 3 in Sports Studies.

Away from their studies, successful trialists will also take part in football training as well as futsal training – an indoor variation of the sport which aims to improve technical skill and ability.

The opportunity to represent Norwich City FC in the England College Divisions and regular Futsal events, which take place at Carrow Park, next to the Canaries’ home stadium, is also on offer.

The football scheme also provides exit routes into coaching, university and further involvement in the sport.
