Little Oakley Football Club is to launch a Full-Time Football Academy for 16-19 Year Olds starting Season 2019/20.
Building on the thriving football teams and facilities at the club’s Memorial Ground, this new football academy, which is being backed by the highly successful AFC Sudbury Academy, will be hosting an information evening and trial match on November 20th 2018.
Michael Good Little Oakley’s Chairman says, “We are very excited to be entering into a partnership with AFC Sudbury Academy to launch the ‘Acorns Academy’. By using their very successful model, expertise and experience, we will look to offer a top quality educational facility which will also allow us to continue strengthening the football club as part of our long term plans. “
Football Scholars at the ‘Acorns Academy’ will benefit from Full-Time Football training with experienced fully qualified coaches, a competitive games programme under the banner of Little Oakley FC, BTEC, NVQ and 1st4Sport Academic qualifications that can lead to a career in the sports industry or university.
Mark Morsley says, “Little Oakley is a football club that I have a great personal affection for, I know the people behind the scenes and how hard they’ve worked to get the club where they are today. Knowing this I also knew that they would be perfect as a partner with our academy; a development that would help both clubs immensely. With the new Acorns Academy developing their own top quality scholars to help them take their club forward I see the AFC Sudbury/Little Oakley relationship building in the coming seasons and I’m proud to have played a small part in its initiation,”
