Academy Players - Profiles
Long Eaton United Academy is one of the key pillars of Long Eaton United Community Football Club a Charity established specifically to bridge the gap between Youth and Senior Football in the Region.
Our Academy Vision is to provide the best educational and sporting opportunities for 16-21 year olds to enable them to become the best that they can be both on the football field and beyond, where they can access:
We want all of our students to progress to become the best footballers they can be and to advance onwards seeking opportunities within sport
and leisure, as coaches at home and abroad, as teachers but above all to be a credit to themselves and their families and become role models for future academy students and our Football Club.
We will provide them with the tools and the environment to enjoy a fabulous experience for two years and beyond should they wish and look forward to outlining our programme, our people and our credentials, which we believe to be second to none.
The academy offers a unique opportunity for youngsters who are interested in the various facets of sport and to seek a career in sport. The chance to study from GCSE to Degree level whilst playing football at a good level is, in my opinion, unprecedented locally and offers a learning environment that is attractive to prospective employers.
