Trials will be held for boys in school years 1-9 as the club opens its doors to recruiting any promising players in the West Yorkshire region into the Thorp Arch academy system.

The trials will be held during the May-June school half-term, which starts on Monday May 31.

United's academy has a long-standing tradition of helping home grown talent go on to feature for the club's first team and beyond.
