Trials & Recruitment

The recruitment department is integral to the success of Millwall’s Academy in finding talented boys who can be developed into first team professional footballers. The Academy’s dedicated and professional recruitment team regularly watch local youth football matches, not only in South East London, but across the whole of the South East of the country. Many boys are successfully introduced into the Academy programme through this pathway each season, usually after completing a six-week trial.

As well as contacting the recruitment team with full details of a youngster's playing history, it is also possible for talented children to be spotted through our Football in the Community scheme.

To recommend a player to the recruitment team, please send a letter with full details of the boy's playing history, along with details of forthcoming games, venues and kick-off times. Send in as much information about his playing including fixture list if they currently play for a club, to:
