Change of date for AFC Fylde Academy information evening

Published on 29/02/2016 by news_admin

An open invitation is extended to 16 to 18-year-olds interested in playing academy football for AFC Fylde.

Places are available for a September start and more information is available on 4 March (previously advertised as 3 March) between 5.30pm and 6.30pm at the B&FC Sports Centre.

Come along and meet first team manager Dave Challinor, plus Matt Barr from the College, which runs the programme on behalf of the club.

The Academy is designed to develop a player's ability both on and off the pitch, via a full-time sports, fitness and exercise study programme. At the same time students train with professional and experienced coaches, often alongside the first team, and play in the conference side's youth squad.

The club itself has a fantastic record for nurturing young talent - within the past month, an Academy player has signed professionals terms with Barnsley FC.
