By PSC Soccer, 05/24/24, 12:30PM PDT


Gareth Holmes will be attending PSC pro tryouts this summer in search of players he can help develop and place in Europe. Read on to learn more about why you should want to impress him and how that can see you on trial or signed in the English Premier League!

Country & League
England, from EPL to tier 7.

How long has he been attending events?
Coach Holmes has been attending PSC tryouts for 4 years and been instrumental in some of our biggest placements in England during that time.

Have they offered opportunities to players from PSC events before?
Yes, Gareth played a big part in one of our biggest success stories of 2023 when US player Leo Londe went on trial with Sheffield United of the English Premier League. He was also instrumental in the placement of Paul Cooper with Barnsley FC in England’s League One

Why impress Coach Holmes?
Coach Holmes has spent his entire professional life playing or coaching at the top levels. He has been academy Director at Derby and Nottingham Forest before now becoming first team coach at Mickleover FC. Gareth is unique at PSC tryouts in that he can be as much assistance to a 15-yr-old looking for their first professional opportunity as he can to a 27-yr-old looking for an upwards movement in the game. Whatever your situation Gareth has the contacts to help you.
