WELWYN Pegasus FC are on the lookout for more footballing talent to boost the club's ranks of successful sides for the 2008/09 season.

With the club constantly expanding, it is set to offer football trial days to aspiring youngsters.

Pegasus have a wide range of teams in differing age groups from their under six side through to Under-17s.

Alan Gibbs, chairman of the club, is eager for youngsters in the area to come forward and give football a go with one of their sides.

He said: "We have had a solid season and now have 22 teams, including two girls' teams for the first time ever.

"We always want new kids to join us, and it's vital that all the children involved enjoy themselves whilst learning some good techniques.

"I believe we as a club can offer kids the chance to develop their skills at whatever level they feel comfortable with."

Gibbs has experience of how both English and foreign coaches work.

He added: "Having seen how football coaching works overseas, I would like to think we are incorporating all sorts of new things to give each child the best possible opportunities."

The first trial day will take place on Wednesday, May 21, for ages U6 to U17, with further days planned for Wednesday, June 4 for ages U11 to U17, and Saturday, June 7 for U6 to U17, all taking place at Monk's Walk School Playing Fields in Welwyn.
