ABOUT THE FOOTBALL
WHERE CAN A STUDENT PROGRESS TO?
By being a part of the Southern League Football Academy and by already being involved in the club, students will have first chance opportunities to be able to progress into their clubs first team as a semi-professional footballer. First team coaching staff are informed regularly of a students progression (often watching games) by the academy coach and inviting students to training sessions if progressing well.
Every season there are also opportunities to play in the ‘Inter-League’ representative side where a nominated selected squad of players from all clubs in the league will compete against professional club academies in a series of games to showcase their talents.
