Strachan Football Foundation on the lookout for next batch of youngsters

Rugby Editorial 18th Oct, 2016 Updated: 27th Oct, 2016   0

YOUNGSTERS currently in year 11 at school interested in a career in football are being encouraged to apply for the Strachan Football Foundation (SFF) full-time education programme.

Now in its seventh year, SFF provides youngsters with the opportunity to continue their education while improving as footballers and learning from some of the best coaches in the country.

It is the brainchild of former Premier League and Scotland star Gordan Strachan and has helped hundreds of young people find full-time education and impressive football scholarships in the USA.

It has also offered several youngsters with a route into the professional game with five players enjoying trials at over ten professional clubs from the Premier League to League One.

SFF is hosting open days in October, February and Easter to give youngsters an opportunity to learn what life is like within the foundation.

The days are designed for each person attending to gain a stronger understanding of what SFF offers within the full time education programme.

Trials will be held on October 25-26, February 21-22 and April 18-19 at Rugby Town JFC in Kilsby Lane (CV21 4PN).

They will consist of training, small sided games, 11-a-side matches and classroom based activities.

To book your place at one of the trials or to find out more information about SFF email managing director Dan Elliott on [email protected] or visit
