Player Education


Encouraging our players to enter a career in sport is something we’ve been actively encouraging over the years. Each year we offer work experience to a number of our 15-17 year old players and offer them the opportunity to be mentored by our highly experienced coaching staff. We also help these players get onto the coaching/refereeing ladder by signposting them onto various FA Courses.

We’re delighted to see that a number of our former players have used this experience to become qualified FA Coaches and FA Referees, as well as using their time with us to assist their Duke of Edinburgh Awards and Overseas Scholarship applications.
