Farsley Celtic Academy

Trial/Open Day - Friday 4th January 2019, 9.30 am to 12.30 pm.

The post-16 provision provides young players with an opportunity to train and play as professional/semi-professional footballers, with all the benefits of a relevant educational qualification.

The full time football programme will be partnered with a Cambridge Technical Sports Course, run from Farsley Celtic’s home of Throstle Nest, providing the perfect balance when looking at further education options away from the classroom. Students on the 1 year Level 2 course will also have the opportunity to study for re-sits in Maths and English GCSE qualifications, whilst students working towards the Level 3 course will study for 2 years. Members of the Academy will train in a professional environment, allowing them to concentrate on improving as players, whilst working with experienced and qualified teachers in order to continue their studies.

Within the Academy the players will compete in the National League Under 19s Alliance League, which is regarded as one of the best youth competitions outside of the professional game and is regularly attended weekly by professional scouts. In addition, the team is entered into the prestigious FA Youth Cup.
