Testimonials
"High quality coaching and structure is essential at a young age to support grass roots football, develop young players and identify gifted and talented individuals that have the potential to play a higher standard of football and possibly be professional footballers."
Paul Thirlwell
Harrogate Town Assistant Manager and Former Premier League Footballer
""Harrogate Town has become a way of life to Brody, he feels like he is part of a big family. He started attending PDC each Thursday evening earlier this year and absolutely loves it! He really enjoys it and hates to miss even one session.""

Player Development Centre

Aiding development and providing a coaching pathway to local footballers
The programme is not intended to infringe on players representing their local grassroots clubs, but does provide the opportunity for talented players to access extra contact time with professional coaches. Furthermore, the choice of evening offered enables the child to take part in other additional activities.

While our Player Development Centre is open to both boys and girls, girls have the option to participate in a girls only programme running seperate to the mixed sessions.

Participants are also given the opoortunity to take part in additional development matches against Football League Academies such as Bradford City and Manchester United.
 

Our lead coaches are FA Qualified to UEFA A/B license standard with support coaches having a minimum FA Level 2 Qualification, while everyone involved in the coaching sessions holds a fully enhanced DBS certification, an up to-date Safeguarding Children qualification and Emergency Aid qualification.
 
Over the last few seasons we are proud to have brought local youngsters through to our first team and beyond. Jack Emmett progressed through our youth ranks and is now a fan favourite and key member of our first team squad, while the likes of Marcus Day and Toby Lees have also made first team appearances having progressed through the club's age groups. Young midfielder Rob Worrall was another player shown the ropes at Town and ended up securing a move to Football League Nottingham Forest.
