Bishop's Stortford Football Club recruiting for its 2021-22 academy intake
Bishop's Stortford are looking for new recruits for their academy.
The programme, which is run in partnership with Birchwood High School, gives young footballers the chance to improve their skills on the pitch and further their education.
As well as working with UEFA B Licence coaches, the academy provides youngsters with a genuine pathway to first-team football as well as opportunities to play in the National League Youth Alliance and FA Youth Cup.
Academy graduate and first-team player Jack Thomas said: "I loved my time at the academy. It helped me learn and grow both as a player and a person. With hard work you can really achieve good things and reach your goals."
There are A-level and BTEC study options. The scheme also offers courses that can help students learn emergency first aid as well as training courses on becoming a referee, gym instructor and FA Level 1 coach.
An open evening where players can register their interest takes place at Blues' R&D Advisors UK Stadium on Thursday December 10 from 7pm before the first trial at Birchwood on Thursday January 7.
