Following a recent audit undertaken by the PGAAC, we are delighted to reveal we have been awarded a license to run a Category 4 Academy.

The Academy will be headed up by Paul Stansfield, and supported by PDP Coach Ross McKay, while Phil Priestley will act as Goalkeeper Coach and Josh Walsh Academy Secretary. Lee Barraclough takes the role of Head of Recruitment.

Based at West Riding FA along with the current first team, our Academy will compete in the EFL Youth Alliance North East, allowing regular competitive fixtures and a clear pathway and progression through the ranks.

“This is a massive step in the right direction for the club in terms of fulfilling the vision of where we started and what we foresee being our future.” Explained First Team Manager Simon Weaver.
