With the 2021/22 season coming to a close, we begin planning for the next and have some exciting academy trials and camps coming up at the end of May!

Druids will be running a series of trials and camps for players looking to carry on playing through the summer and to join our academy next season. This season, a number of our academy players have progressed up to make their senior debuts with the first team. We have a clear pathway for our academy players to play at the highest levels in Wales. Are you looking for the chance?
