October 2020 Trial Dates


October half-term trials dates for the 2021/2022 intake for current year 11 and 12 students have been released!

The Strachan Football Foundation (SFF) are excited to announce that we will be hosting a trial day on Monday 26th October from 9am-3pm.

For the first time we will also be hosting an evening trial session on Friday 30th October from 6pm-9pm.

Based at our state of the art facility at the home of Rugby Borough, Kilsby Lane, Cv21 4PN, we offer students the opportunity to continue their education journey whilst developing their football talent.

SFF is for students who wish to experience and excel in a structured, development orientated environment. The scope of SFF provides students the optimum opportunity to develop as players and as people.

In the classroom, we run Level 2 and Level 3 sport qualification courses which allow direct entry into university and American colleges. Plus, this year, we are delighted to be running an additional course; HND/BSC Foundation Degree in Sport’s coaching, science and management.

On the pitch, all students will receive the highest level of football coaching under the guidance of FA Pro-license holder and Director Of Football; George Mackie.

SFF has an unrivalled history of providing the perfect platform for students to begin the next chapter of their journeys. Previous students have gone on to First Class Universities, Division 1 American colleges and apprenticeships within the football industry.

Due to the excellent links and relationships we have with professional clubs a number of our past students have also signed full-time contracts with football league clubs including Coventry City, Bristol Rovers and Falkirk FC.

Pre Season Tour

Pre Season Around The Corner

One week today over 40 new students will embark on their football and education studies with the Strachan Football foundation. This will be a record intake and we hope to build on our successes both in the classroom and on the pitch from last year.

So far we have arranged a number of pre season friendlies against local and academy teams, we have secured a pre season trip for the first time for some of our 2nd and 3rd year students and we now have an additional league we are entering in our games programme.

We would like to extend a special well done to our current students who participated in a special 3 day  VAR tournament at St. Georges Parkin June. The students were again a credit to the foundation.

This promises to be a really exciting year for all the students at the foundation.


From all of us here at the foundation we hope you enjoy the rest of the World Cup and your summer.
