EVESHAM UNITED JOIN THE SOUTHERN LEAGUE FOOTBALL ACADEMY
The Southern League Football Academy (SLFA) is delighted to announce that Southern Division One South side, Evesham United have joined the programme, taking the number of clubs up to nine.
Evesham United Chairman Jim Cockerton, said: “Evesham United are very excited to take the next stride in our journey of progression and we have always thought that starting an academy was a step in the right direction.
“For the last few years, we have looked at alternative providers to join up with. We found there to be some providers that were too heavily focused on football and some the other way round. What the SLFA offered seem to strike a perfect balance, allowing us to work together to develop local, home-grown talent with some graduating into the first team whilst giving them a well-structured education for their future. Everyone at Evesham United is very excited to work with the SLFA.”
An SLFA spokesperson commented: ““We are delighted to announce the new arrival of Evesham United FC onto the SLFA programme for September 2020.”
“The club is rapidly developing and we are looking forward to the growth of the Academy with the SLFA, with the potential of development into our first team.”
Recruitment begins now for a September 2020 start and interested applicants can apply at: https://www.theslfa.co.uk/register
There is a maximum of twenty-two places available for Evesham United Academy. Keep an eye out for the first trial dates which will be announced soon. Welcome Evesham United!
