Match Play

Throughout the weeks the squad compete against other local teams, academies and travelling teams. These competitive fixtures give the players an opportunity to demonstrate their talent to the professional coaches and scouts present.Players can also put into practice the skills that they have worked on during training. The managers and coaches of the visiting teams are all linked to professional clubs, so these are opportunities for talented players to be identified. All players, whatever the duration of their stay or status of their course, will get the opportunity to be involved in the match play.

Throughout the programme we offer a variety of optional extra excursions and opportunities such as:-

Trips to professional football clubs for coaching session

UK football trials days

Guest speakers at the school site in Manchester

Watching live games in the northwest of England
