Derby County Development Centres will once again be holding a series of Open Trial Evenings to find the best young talent in the Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire area.

Since the development centres were originally set up, over sixty players have progressed through the Development Centre system to sign for Derby County’s Academy. Last season, ten players made the step from Development Centre’s to Academy, ranging from Under 8’s, through to Under 14’s.

The Development Centre give children the opportunity to train free of charge on a weekly basis, in an environment that will develop them technically, tactically, psychologically and socially.

Successful trialists will earn a place at their chosen trial venue.


There are currently no scheduled trial dates. Please keep checking back for new dates.





























PLEASE NOTE: Any players who attend who haven’t registered for a trial may be turned away. Spaces will be limited to each venue.
