Norwich City FC RDP partner with Histon Football Club

The Club have developed a partnership with Histon Football Club in Cambridgeshire, to form squads from the U13 to U16 age groups.

Players are asked to attend trials throughout their U12 season, hosted by the RDP management & Histon management teams, with the ultimate aim to form a Histon FC squad with a maximum capacity of 16 boys. The team will then compete in the Eastern Junior Alliance (EJA) league from Under 13 onwards.

The RDP organises the recruitment process of the squads, and supports the Histon FC management, with the delivery of the programme through coaching. Playing as Histon FC the teams will be entered into various leagues and cups including the EJA League Cup, the EJA midweek floodlit Cup and the County Cup.

The EJA is widely considered the highest level of football outside of Academy football and covers Suffolk, Essex, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire and London. Matches take place midweek and on Sundays. Players selected to the squad will be asked to commit exclusively to Histon FC, with regards to Sunday football commitments.

Boys identified for this programme will train once/twice a week and may continue with additional Norwich City FC RDP programmes alongside their EJA Squad training and fixtures should they be identified for these programmes.
