Hornchurch FC has a thriving youth programme running teams from U7s through to U18s then on to the Academy, and First Team.  We are always on the lookout for new players to improve our existing youth squads so will be running trials for the various age groups between now and the start of the season in August / September.

There will also be occasions during the 2019/20 season when we will also require new players so all our requirements, whether pre-season or intra-season are detailed below. Where possible we’ll always provide contact information so if interested you can confirm with the manager/coach whether the position or positions are still required.
