Football Academy – Cheshire County Champions in their first season
Studio@Knutsford and Egerton Football Club have combined to launch a new community based Football Academy here in Knutsford that will open up opportunities for 16-18 Year olds providing advanced football coaching together with excellent Sixth Form study options. The first students started in September 2016 and we are now looking for students to join the Academy for September 2017.
The Football Academy is for young local footballers with a passion for the game who will receive high level coaching lead by former professional players at Egerton FC. They will also study FA coaching qualifications and have the opportunity to assist with coaching the youth teams at Egerton. Competitive football games will be played at both an elite and recreational Level.
Together with the football, students will then choose an appropriate academic programme be it at A Level or BTEC and including sports focused subjects. The academic programme will be provided here in the Studio school at Knutsford Academy. Students will also receive specific support to develop a range of skills to help prepare them for the next step be it at university, an apprenticeship or employment in a range of careers.
