EASTERN JUNIOR ALLIANCE

Histon and Norwich City Regional Development Programme (RDP) announced a partnership in July 2019 aimed at recruiting and developing the best local young players into the youth development pathway here at Histon FC. The two clubs would work together to produce teams from Under 13’s to Under 16’s that would be jointly coached by the two clubs with future outcomes anticipated of progression into either club’s Scholarship Programme at Under 17 level.

The first of these teams began competing in the EJA for the 2020/21 season and for 2021/22 we will be running Under 18s, Under 15s, Under 14s and Under 13s teams.

More information regarding trials and exactly what being a part of the Histon/Norwich City EJA programme entails for both players and parents is available in the “Trials” section of this page but if you are interested in learning more now then please feel free to contact either Alex Kaufman or Mark Pleasants directly, both of whom will be happy to explain more.

Our partnership with Norwich City RDP was launched in 2019 with the first of our teams competing in the EJA for the 2020/21 season.

Recruitment is always ongoing for our next Under 13’s side as the existing sides move up a year.

 

Details of forthcoming trials will be posted here and on our social media channels when confirmed.

The EJA Partnership will provide selected boys in the area with a competitive weekly training and games programme playing as Histon FC in the Eastern Junior Alliance leagues. Training sessions & fixtures will be delivered by Histon FC management & Norwich City FC RDP Coaching staff.

As an addition, selected boys will also be offered a place in the Norwich City FC RDP Elite programme alongside their EJA commitments, to provide them with additional coaching hours and fixtures during half terms.

You can also visit our partnerships page on Norwich City’s website for a brief overview. VISIT
