UCD AFC are pleased to announce that our annual freshers trials will take place on Wednesday 11th September at 6pm. All interested players should report to the Sports Centre Dressing Rooms at 6pm sharp.Soccer Trials 2019

The Freshers team will compete in the Leinster Senior League Saturday Major 1B Division, while it will also compete in the Harding Cup (Intervarsities Competition) and the annual colours match against Trinity College.

UCD has a long history on successfully developing young players, and our success can be seen throughout the League of Ireland today! Many players across the League of Ireland and beyond have worn the UCD Shirt in recent years including, Andy Boyle, Robbie Benson, Georgie Kelly and Jamie McGrath (all Dundalk FC), Gary O'Neill, Neil Farrugia, Greg Bolger, Dylan Watts and Ronan Finn (all Shamrock Rovers), and David McMillan (St Johnstone) to name a few. Various other players have firmly established themselves throughout our teams as current first team players, or in our LSL Senior 1 Sunday, and Major Saturday sides, as well as becoming an integral part of our College's teams.

Dara Keane who currently plays in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division with our first team came through last years freshers trials, and there is no reason why you can't be the next star to emerge!

Please ensure to bring shorts, socks, tshirt/jersey, boots, shin guards and a tracksuit.
