Savannah, 29 August 2022: Savannah Clovers FC will host their first talent identification program with a dedicated trial that will be held exclusively for soccer players within the Savannah area as the club starts plotting towards putting together the first official roster in the
club’s history as a professional soccer club.
The trials will take place on Saturday 24th September at Memorial Stadium from 9am – 3pm where all talented Coastal Empire and Low Country players will have an opportunity to showcase their talent and impress Head Coach David Proctor and his technical team. “I’m delighted Savannah Clovers FC can offer opportunities for the local players of Savannah & the surrounding area to have a shot at either earning a professional contract or be invited to pre-season training for further evaluation,” says David Proctor. “We’re looking for some hidden
gems, and we have no doubt that these players are out there.”
Savannah Clovers FC are looking for players that are of the age and ability to be full time professional players. Players are required to have the requisite playing experience at either UPSL, NPSL, USL2 or College as a minimum requirement. Players are required to pay a $60 registration fee to confirm one of the limited spots available. Numbers are being kept to a
minimum in order to give players enough playing time for a full and fair assessment.
Savannah Clovers FC have also confirmed that the $60 deposit that the club is asking for players to reserve their spots will be donated to a local charitable cause with further details of this to be communicated by the club in the near future. All players who are interested in attending the Savannah Clovers FC ID Trial must visit the official club website www.savannahclovers.com and follow the link to secure their place, subject to specific verification questions to ensure eligibility.
Players who are interested in playing for Savannah Clovers but who reside in areas outside of Savannah will be given an opportunity to showcase their ability at a future ID Trial that will be announced in the near future.
Savannah Clovers FC begin their first season as a professional club in March 2023 in the National Independent Soccer Association (NISA).
