A direct route into professional football

The development of our BTEC programme offers us the ability to be able to attract talented footballers up to the age of 18 and also allow a natural transition for our Football Academy graduates once they complete their GCSE’s. The addition of the ‘Shadow Squad’ allows players to share facilities and Coaches with signed players making the opportunity of being professionally selected more likely than ever.
