How it works

Our Player Development Programme (PDP) has changed as we now invite parents/carers to complete our expression of interest form for the new cohort.

The PDP will now run for 3 blocks of 11 weeks (operating through half terms and breaking for Christmas)

This means our 1st block (if you are successful) will run from week commencing 24th September and ending week commencing 4th December 2023.

We will be running double banded age groups from U9, U11, U13 and U9-U13 groups for Goalkeeper specific. (A total of 16 players in each age group)

How players are identified

From filling out the expression of interest form, each application will be sifted, and successful participants will be invited to join our 11-week programme as part of our new Talent Identification process.

This new format will help us to develop talent within our new potential player pathway.

*Please note our Player Development Programme will operate on a one-off block booking payment of £75 that covers the whole 11 weeks, so please consider this when you are expressing your interest and if your child is successful.*
