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.

It had been hoped that the first of these teams (at Under 13’s level) would be entered into the Eastern Junior Alliance (EJA) for the 2019/20 season but unfortunately that was not possible due to the timescales after the partnership was agreed.

Therefore, a new strategy was formed with a view to Histon FC entering teams into the EJA in the Under 13, 14, 15 and 16 age groups for the 2020/21 season.

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.
