Northern Rep Team

REQUEST A TRIAL

What is the Northern Rep Team programme?

The JPL Northern Rep Team programme offers the best JPL Players (U9s to U15s) from across the North of England the opportunity to train and compete together. It is the highest standard of football outside the Pro Academy system. 

 

The Programme takes place during school holidays and so does not impact upon a player’s training or matches with their existing JPL club.

 

The Rep Team trials involve two training sessions which are also observed by scouts from Pro Clubs. Successful players then take part in three training sessions with a highly experienced and qualified Coaching Team.

 

The competitive element of the programme involves playing four competitive matches against Pro Club Academy/Emerging Talent teams. The programme then concludes with a Showcase Event against the other Rep Team Regions with scouts from Pro Clubs in attendance.

 

 

 

 

 

 



Some games are recorded on VEO and have professional quality action photo's taken.

During the 2023/24 programme the Northern Rep Team competed against Lincoln City, Leeds Utd, Mansfield Town, Sheffield Utd, Bradford City and Manchester United.


The Rep Team programme provides Pro Clubs the opportunity to scout for players. One in Eight players from the Northern Rep Team signed for a Pro Academy during the 2023/24 season.

 

At the end of the programme players have the opportunity to attend an overseas trip to Real Madrid, Barcelona or Juventus where the squads train at the first team training facility, play games against local opposition and take part in a tour of Stadium.
