Nescot Football Academy

Nescot Football Academy. Run in association with Johnson Football Schools. 
Monday 8th April. 10.00 registration. See below to register.

The Nescot Football Academy, in association with Johnson Football Schools, provides aspiring football players with the opportunity to combine education with football.

The academy allows boys and girls to train and compete full time around their education. They will be coached technically and tactically as well as having gym programmes. To play in the teams, members must keep up-to-date with all their college work.

The academy teams compete in the top tier and second tier of the Tactic League. Academy players also get the chance to showcase their skills in friendly fixtures against professional teams such as Millwall, Peterborough and Southampton, with many players subsequently being offered trials. 

Players interested in college scholarships abroad have also been able to showcase their ability in front of coaches from universities in the USA, who have been invited to watch fixtures and training. The aim for the development squad is to progress players through into semi-professional and professional first teams.
