Looking for a football club?

FootballTrialFinder.com is an exciting new project, which is giving footballers a second chance.

It is a football consultancy service that has been set up for players who want, and believe that they can become professional and semi-professional footballers.

FTF could be your answer if you want that contract, but this adventure is not just in England, there are opportunities further afield.

It has been set-up by Simon Dent, a practicing FIFA Football Agent, who says: “Everybody deserves a second chance. We don’t promise that everyone will get a contract, but they [the players] will have a platform to show what they can do.”

Simon and his team will use their contacts to give talented and skillful youngsters the opportunity to showcase their ability.

With many youngsters getting released, Dent admitted: “These young lads find themselves without a club, and don’t know who to contact.

“We will be able to point them in the right direction and be able to use our contacts to help get them in front of the right people.”

Whilst they would like to be able to guarantee professional contracts, this is not possible, but FTF will enable their clients to show their ability in front of professional coaches and scouts.


There are three different elements to the project, firstly a ‘CV distribution service’, which will also include help creating the right one that will get them noticed.

Then there is the ‘Professional football consultants’, which will see the organization arrange trial games every two months against a semi-professional side, where there will be numerous scouts in attendance.  

The third and possibly most interesting is the ‘Portal for clubs abroad’, this is where teams from different clubs across the globe will advertise for players.

Relating to the last point Dent said: “We have a group of players heading over to Romania later this month and they will get to play in front of coaches and scouts from Romania’s top division.”

What the Pro’s say

Nathan Ellington began his career with Tooting and Mitcham in the non-league, before going on to score at every level of the English game.

Jimmy Bullard also started as a semi-pro, playing for Gravesend & Northfleet before joining West Ham and then Peterborough United, he speaks glowingly of Dent: “Simon is always available at the end of the phone to assist with whatever I have going on in my life.

Before adding, “Combining this with his contacts in the game means he’s the obvious choice to represent me.

Aymen Tahar is someone who took part in the first trial match, and he now plays in Romania with Gaz Metan Medias, he said: “Within weeks of working with Simon Dent I had secured a professional contract in Romania.

He continued: “It was a well managed from start to finish and I’m in touch with Simon most days.”  

How to get involved?

You can have to decide whether you want to take-up either the Silver, Gold or Platinum package and contact Simon and his team. With a bit of luck and having shown your ability you will be on your way to a new contract.
