Maidstone United to hold trials in preparation for expanded club academy which will increase in size from September
Maidstone United are expanding their academy and are holding
trials for the new intake on Monday.
The Gallagher Stadium currently caters for 55 students but from
September will house 90.
Chief executive Bill Williams, pictured, said: "Any
school-leaver who’s serious about their football wants to be
joining our academy.
"We can offer the best in coaching, education, facilities and
leagues. It’s also an opportunity to be part of one of the most
exciting clubs in non-league football."
Dan Johnson, Alfie Pavey, Charley Robertson and Jack Sullivan
have all played for United’s first team this season, having
impressed for the academy in the Conference Youth Alliance.
Students will spend five days a week at the Gallagher Stadium,
studying for a BTEC Level 3 in sport and a range of
football-related qualifications. These include FA Level 1 and 2
coaching badges, first aid and working with disabled players.
To register for Monday’s trials, which take place between 11am
and 1.30pm, call the club on 01622 753817 or email lead tutor Alan
Seamons at email@example.com
