Welcome to our unique
Paid Football and Education
This is a fantastic initiative that has been part of the club’s long-term plan and coincides with the clubs vision of developing the very best young players in the area, this is evident with our first team which is the youngest team in the league.
Once the scouted players enrol on our programme we instantly progress these young and talented players into semi professional football players as these players will be paid a monthly salary for their football endeavours. This new initiative will run alongside our existing football and education programme which will continue as usual and has seen great success. This programme is entering its 5 year next September and is based at our 20 acre purpose build football facility at Roe Lane Playing Fields in Newcastle under Lyme.
Expert coaching by our 1st team manager and ex Premier League Captain Robin van der Laan ensures the very best quality on the training ground and that each player’s development is closely monitored so that progression into the 1st team can be timed just right.
Students study on the Level 3 BTEC in sports which gives them great exit routes into the sports industry or into further education with either ourselves on an extended diploma for a 3rd year or into University. We are partnered with PM Training so your quality of education is ensured.
Spaces for these scholarships are limited so please contact us to book your trial by calling Gavin Appleby on 07904 511561 or email
