Chelsea FC Foundation run Development Centres in various areas around the country – these are known as Pre-Academy Development sessions. These centres can act as feeders into the Chelsea Academy for the very best players.
Successful players will be invited in to attend the Clacton Centre on a weekly
basis and may be invited to play in matches against other such centres from
time to time.
Some of the top Development Centre players have been offered Chelsea FC Academy trials in Cobham, whereas others have gone on to sign Academy contracts at other more local professional clubs including Ipswich Town and Colchester United.
This year's Talent Day is on the Astroturf at Clacton Coastal Academy in
Jaywick Lane (formerly Bishops Park) on Thursday 14th August 2014.
The day is free as we want as many players to be able to showcase their talents
