This is an excellent way to take your first step towards becoming a professional or semi professional football player.

This is an outstanding opportunity to combine your studies with your football training as you will complete a college sports course alongside your training. This is all carried out on site at Steel Park Stadium, Monday-Friday and every Wednesday we play in the college national league competition.

The program is overseen by former Glasgow Rangers and Oxford United defender Steve Kinniburgh, who is the club's director of football and head coach of the academy sides.
