Each age group will also have the opportunity to play against other development centres and non league opposition in friendly matches arranged by Protec during the season to assess the progress of each individual..
Eastern junior alliance
We will be entering two Protec elite teams in the E.J.A league for the 2012 season many of our players have gone on to compete in various senior leagues and some have even stepped up to the Premiership and the Football League, Three of last season’s boys went on to get Y.T.S contracts with league clubs.
The aim of the EJA is to provide the youth of the Eastern Home Counties with the best standard of football excellence outside of youth teams representing the Premiership and Football League Clubs. The teams competing in this league are drawn from various senior and step 7 clubs in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, London, Middlesex and Suffolk who wish to provide their youth players with the highest possible standard of football.
