Our under 8’s and 9’s have been invited to play Sheffield Wednesday Development Academy at Middlewood Road (1st team’s training ground) on Friday 3rd April at 5pm.

Academy Director John McCombe said ‘These fixtures provide yet another platform for our young players to test themselves against academy opposition and will give them an opportunity to impress in front of Championship scouts and coaches. To visit a Championship team’s training ground and see where professional footballers train on a daily basis will be a tremendous experience for all of our players.’

We have recently formed an exciting new partnership with Kettlethorpe High School that will provide us with a platform to implement our long term plans for the academy. The brand new, state of the art, 3G pitch offers a 1st class training facility that will give our academy players the best opportunity to become technically excellent footballers. This move will allow us to offer academy standard coaching to children of different ages and abilities within our community. We would like to thank Crofton Community Centre for their support and for the use of their facilities during the last 6 months.
