DO you know a talented young footballer?

CBBC show Can You Kick It is currently searching for the UK’s best young technical footballers.

Producers are urging parents of youngsters aged between 10 and 14 years old with the necessary tekkers to apply now ahead of auditions in Manchester. 

To apply, you’ll need to complete an application form and send in a video showing off your best football skills. 

Selected players will then be invited to attend a regional trial in Manchester, Glasgow or London where they can show off their best tricks and can have a go on the Can You Kick It? course, specifically designed to test all aspects of football technique.

The top ten footballers from the trials will then get the opportunity to hone their skills and the chance to progress to the grand final.

Trials will take place from late June to the middle of July. 

The next stage of the competition runs from August 5 to 15 with the final on August 25. 

A spokesman added: "Participants will be asked to demonstrate their football skills throughout the process, in addition to completing various challenges, and attending training sessions with experienced players and coaches."
