The Academy at Accrington Stanley want to Provide Home grown Players for our First team Squad or to provide players who can be sold on by the club to support both the running of the club/Academy.

We will be looking to recruit primarily in the ‘Lancashire’ region and surrounding areas.

We will be following the ‘Clubs’ vision and looking to develop technically, physically and tactically astute players.

Accrington Stanley Football Club not only intends to further develop players technical ability and innovative skills, but also further educate players in match play including tactical awareness understanding and decision making skills.

The programme will incorporate sessions on ‘Game Specific’ aspects, where the coach will relate the objectives and observations from games into the session. This will enable the coach to identify specific needs of individuals and the team in terms of strategies,tactics and player awareness in line with the Club Football Philosophy.

The Academy Programme will also provide its players with the opportunity to attain a fitness level requisite of an elite athlete and develop knowledge and understanding of diet and nutrition.

The Academy programme is designed to produce the players of the future for Accrington Stanley Football Club and with the continued development of the Academy holistic programme this will ensure it continues in the future.

Dedication, Loyalty, Friendship and Teamwork from all those associated with the Academy and Club,  will enable Accrington Stanley Football Club to provide the avenue and learning environment for the development of players on the Academy Programme, through the Professional Youth Development Phase (League Football Education) Programme and into the Senior game of Association Football.

Our responsibility to the future of this club is to give budding talent the very best opportunity to flourish, We want to make this Academy such a place where today’s talent can be the games future.
