The training for both men and women

Ever fancied playing for England? The Homeless Football Association (part of Centrepoint) is looking for the next Wayne Rooney or Fara Williams to join its 2015 training programme.

You’ll get training from Premier League clubs and could end up representing England in the Homeless World Cup.

Players are not accepted on football ability. Priority will be given to new applicants who have experienced homelessness in the last year.

The deadline is 5pm on Friday 13 March 2015.

To download an application pack, visit or request a pack by calling 020 7423 6888 or emailing
