New 16+ Academy Venue!


Our expansion continues as we add another venue for September 2018 where our Football Academy & Education Scholarship will be offered.

We are delighted to form a partnership with Holbeach United Youth FC based at Holbeach United Community Sports Academy where our students will benefit from the magnificent purpose built facilities.

This is a fantastic and exciting opportunity for local budding footballers from Holbeach, Spalding and surrounding towns and villages.

The students will receive UEFA coaching for 15-20 hours a week whilst studying a BTEC level 2 or 3 in Sport which has been rated GOOD by OFSTED. Included in our programme students will also work towards achieving an FA Level 1 Coaching Qualification as well as becoming a qualified referee. The opportunities we offer on this programme are endless, and we are delighted to be able to offer an educational programme of this nature locally.

Stuart Clark, Vice Chairman added “The trustees of Holbeach United Community Sports Academy are proud to be working with One Touch Soccer School to launch an educational based football scheme for 16-18 year olds. Since the opening of the Academy in 2015, we have been able to offer football to over 250 children and young adults aged 7-18 and have 17 teams currently using the facility. Having spoken with Glenn at One Touch and gaining an understanding of what the course has to offer school leavers, we are pleased that our community facility can be used on a daily and weekly basis to enhance and develop these young adults.”

Glenn Vaughan, Academy Director said, “We are delighted to have secured another fantastic facility and have the backing of Holbeach United Youth FC to help us create what will be a sensational centre. The opportunities this centre will offer our students are endless and I can’t wait to get it off the ground and make a start, it’s all very exciting. Knowing the success we have had at Netherton and Oakham, I am confident this centre will attract many players who want to move up the pathway into playing a higher standard of football or those wanting to gain a recognised qualification.

We will be holding our first open event on Thursday 15th  February 2018 from 1:00pm till 3:00pm at Holbeach United Community Sports Academy.
