FC United’s new Women’s Football Academy for the 2015/16 season is holding an information day on Friday 10 April 2015 for those who are interested.

Starting in September 2015, the FC United Women’s Football Academy is offering training and a two-year course of study for school leavers and players between 16-18 years old. Paul Bright, FC United Youth Academy Manager, said: “We are offering full-time football and education scholarships for successful entrants. Players will train on a daily basis and study towards a BTEC Level 2 or 3 in Sport, Business Studies or Media Studies. They will also play in the England Colleges league and cup competitions, with a clear pathway into the FC United women’s first team.”

Players will train, play and study at the brand new, purpose-built home of FC United of Manchester at Broadhurst Park in Moston. They will benefit from opportunities to improve technical and tactical ability alongside gaining recognised academic qualifications in order to improve their football CV, which can also be useful for potential USA scholarships. Paul Bright said: “The FC United Women’s Football Academy offers a unique opportunity for young women to further their football and education and be an important part of one of the leading supporter-owned football clubs in the country.”

Kate Ramsey, FC United board member with responsibility for women’s football, said: “The launch of this academy is a fantastic step and shows FC United’s commitment to the development of the women’s game. Since launching the women’s team in 2012, it has been our clear intention to provide opportunities for girls and young women to access football from local communities at a grassroots level. This programme will give girls and young women the opportunity to study and play and we are able to realise it as part of moving into our new facilities at Broadhurst Park in Moston.”

All abilities are welcome to come along to the information day on Friday 10 April 2015 from 12noon to 3pm to try out for a place in the new FC United Women’s Football Academy.
