Player Development sessions set to return

Our Football Development centres, which hold the aim of helping to develop children’s football skills, is set to return at the end of this month (April).

We aim to give children from Burton and surrounding areas an opportunity to play weekly football alongside our coaches, in a fun and friendly environment, which provides a pathway for children of all abilities. The programme has been created alongside the academy syllabus (UEFA and FA Licensed Coaches) which are made up of a number of different technical and skills practices, as well as small sided games.

The sessions are open to children aged 5-13 years and will start up again on April 27th at Blessed Robert Sutton, Burton, and at Oldfield Hall Middle School, Uttoxeter. Both sessions run from 6-7pm and cost just £4 per session or £36 for a 10 week block.

On top of this, children that also do show potential, will be signposted to the academy/academy development squads at Burton Albion FC.
