Ciaran Gittens - Aged 10 - Trial For Morecambe

Ciaran Gittens - Aged 10 - Trial For Morecambe



10-year-old goalkeeper Ciaran Gittens was scouted from our Cheshire event back in October 2021 by Morecambe and went on trial with the League One side.

We caught up with Ciaran's dad to gain a better understanding of Ciaran's football history, why he chose to attend our event and what happened since.

Firstly we asked about Ciaran's football background, his dad told us:"Ciaran started playing at U7's for St Helens Town, from there he moved on and won the cup where he was man of the match after having an absolute blinder of a game."

"After that we opted to bring him along to your trial day where Morecambe took an interest in him and came calling." he added.

Moving on to why they chose to attend one of our trials, Ciaran's dad explained: "We chose to bring him along to your trial as people kept telling us how good he was so we thought why not give him an opportunity to see how he got on."

Commenting on the trial day he said: "Ciaran absolutely loved the trial day with you guys. He came away with a massive smile on his face and he really enjoyed the coaching with the older lads that were there."

"The older lads along with the coach were absolutely fantastic with Ciaran. He was shown a few different things so I thought that was a brilliant aspect of the course."

He also added: "I thought that the number of scouts at the event was fantastic. I was very impressed."

Moving on to the trial with Morecambe, we were told: "Ciaran was with Morecambe for around one month and the whole experience was a bit surreal." 

"I say this because as opposed to grassroots football all of the parents watching are completely silent and the coaches don't care about the results as long as the players are putting into practice what they have learnt and are developing."

Commenting on the level he said: "The level between grassroots and academy football is astronomical. In my personal opinion as a layman I feel Ciaran did well and didn't look out of place."

Unfortunately due to the Covid-19 pandemic Ciaran's trial was put on hold due to the lack of training and fixtures. Ciaran and his dad hope to they can continue where they left off in the future.

Everyone at UK Football Trials would like to congratulate Ciaran on being scouted and trialling with Morecambe! We hope he can continue to push on and grow as a player.
