What do they say it's like

What's the youngest a club will sign you now? And what are the terms

Do they pay the parents?

General discussion.

3 of my cousins are at qpr, youngest being 8 and oldest being 13, don't think they pay the parents and not sure of the terms. I think they take you on a 6 week trial sort of thing before they allow you to train permanently, think they evaluate their progress on a term by term basis and have the option to let you go at the end of the term.

Grandad COULD have played for Sheffield United, he was training with them, and one time he broke his leg and was never the same player he used to be, so they let him go.

True story.

Cousins signed a contract with Forest till he's 18. Currently in year 10. They will give him 25 a week and help him through college when he leaves school. Think it means another team can't buy him if he gets that far without paying a fee,

My brothers mate plays for brighton u15s or 16s. said he dont get any pay apart from travel expenses, gets meals before matches though, free kit, training gears, boots ect.

Did say though they try make the kids go into specific colleges and shit and do specific courses, wanted this boy to do sports and stuff, but he and a few others wanna do more academic stuff incase they dont make good p doing footie.
