They will have an Academy structure in place

normally run by an Academy Manager/Director who

works closely with the First Team Manager and

First Team Coaches.

Clubs like this will have Academy Teams also

known as Youth football teams.

The Academy will oversee players from all ages,

younger players will attend Soccer Schools

working with Club trained Football Coaches who

follow This Clubs strict playing style.

Players then progress as they get older and are

then signed to the Club from 9 years old.

They will then compete against other similar

Academies, and each year new Footballers are

needed to fill team places that become available

in the Academy teams.

As Players reach 13, the rules change slightly, and

players who live further away from this training ground

can be signed to this Club. When players reach 16

and over Players, are then signed on Contacts,

either following a trial or by getting scouted.

signed without a trial, as the trial takes place in a

variety of formats that suits the Club and the Player,

which I have listed here.

we are made aware of and publish them on this

league possible, so more advice is to ensure you are
