Important Information

If your player is offered a spot within the GUFC NPLG/W program, you are asked to accept that offer and pay the required deposit within 48 hours to secure the spot or the offer will go to the next player in line.

It is your responsibility to monitor your email inbox in this regard (this includes your junk/spam folders). Please be vigilant in this regard.

Communication regarding trial results will vary across the course of the weeks to follow. Some players may hear from the club after their first trial session, while others may not hear until the end of the trial period.

We know how stressful trials can be on players, which is why we are doing what we can to ensure the GUFC process is as timely and efficient as possible. If you hear that a player has been made an offer, please do not assume that means you have not. Our offers may roll out one by one, or in small groups, with acceptance required within the nominated period before the next round of offers are made. Every player who has registered via our EOI form will hear from us one way or another within two weeks of the commencement of the trials. Please note we do not provide trials feedback to individuals who may not receive an offer to play for GUFC.

Refer to the offer process spelled out on the registration form for more information.

Please ensure you understand the above before you register for GUFC trials and that you double check (and triple check) your contact details in the form before you submit. Please also ensure you are familiar with our Club Values and the Code of Conduct.

All players trialing are covered by the 2022 Play Football registration insurance. If you did not play in the 2022 season, please acknowledge on the form that you understand that in the event of an injury, you may not be covered by FA/Capital Football insurance.
