Evesham United are extremely proud to announce that we have joined the Southern League Football Academy (SLFA).
Our Chairman Jim Cockerton commented: “Evesham United are very excited and have felt for some time that the next step in our progression was to have an academy.
“For the last couple of years, we have looked at several providers to work alongside us; some have been more academic than football focused, some the other way around. The SLFA is a fantastic combination of both football and education.”
“Others required more from the club than we were able to offer. Then we met The SLFA and they offered what we felt was the perfect balance, allowing us to work together to develop players at a local level, with some graduating into the first team in years to come, whilst giving them a structured education for their future.
“The football club look forward to working with everyone involved with the SLFA.”
An SLFA spokesperson commented: “We are delighted to announce the new arrival of Evesham United FC onto the SLFA programme for September 2020.”
“The club is rapidly developing, and we are looking forward to the growth of the Academy with the SLFA, with the potential of development into our first team.”
Recruitment begins now for a September 2020 start and interested applicants can apply at: https://www.theslfa.co.uk/register
