Sun 29th April 2018 | Burscough | By Ian Templeman
Burscough FC have announced that they will be running a full time Football Education Academy Programme from September 2018.
The scheme will be run in conjunction with Bootroom Academies Ltd, an organisation headed up by ex-Liverpool manager Roy Evans and ex-Liverpool and England international player Steve McMahon, who will be the education provider.
Course participants will study for a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport & Physical Activity which can enable players/students to progress onto Higher Education (University) should they wish, alongside the opportunity to complete some FA qualifications.
Burscough Secretary Steve Halliwell said:
"We are excited to be embarking on this new venture as we believe that working with Bootroom Academies will offer all of our 16-18 year old players enhanced opportunities.
"All current Burscough FC Academy players who are currently in their First Year are welcome to stay on programme at Victoria Park for the 2018-2019 season during the change over, and naturally progress into their second year with us.
"This opportunity is also open to boys currently in Year 11 or Year 12. The programme is for a duration of 2 years (1 year if you are already in year 12) and you will study The Level 3 Diploma in
Sport & Physical Activity which carries substantial UCAS points.
"There will be no written exams, and all assessments are coursework based".
Burscough FC will be running trials, the dates to be announced, however anyone interested can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org quoting ‘Burscough FC’ along with their name, age and playing position.
