Are you aged 16-18 and looking to combine football and studying in a football club environment?

Corby Town Football Club are looking for boys and girls aged 16-18 who are looking to earn a place in September's full time academy sides.

This is an excellent way to take your first step towards becoming a professional or semi professional football player. In the last 3 seasons Corby Town FC have seen more than 10 academy players feature in the 1st team squad and now we are looking for the next local star to break through.... could that be you?

This is an outstanding opportunity to combine your studies with your football training as you will complete a Btec in sports 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.

Upon completion of the course, the exit routes open to you will be :

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.
