ACCRINGTON STANLEY are joining forces with Accrington and Rossendale College to offer gifted school leavers the opportunity to gain a recognised academic qualification, while fulfilling their sporting potential.
The programme requires students to spend 12 hours a week studying in college as well as taking part in 12 hours a week football coaching. The club have appointed qualified football coach Paul Lodge to run the scheme.
The club is looking for school leavers who have been released by any professional club, or other talented youngsters who wish to develop their football skills while working towards an academic qualification.
Trials will begin soon. Anyone interested should send a short footballing CV as soon as possible to: Paul Lodge, PASE Scheme, Accrington Stanley Football Club, Livingstone Road, Accrington BB5 5BX.
