Frequently Asked Questions

Can anyone apply for the course?

Yes, just contact us at and register your interest.

How often will I train?

There will be 4-8 training sessions a week and also separate development sessions, through strength and conditioning to individual training.

Will Gordon coach at the academy?

Gordon will be a regular face at the academy and will use his vast playing and coaching experience in the game to develop the students.

Will I get a trial or be signed by a professional club?

We can not guarantee students will be signed or given trials at professional clubs. What we can guarantee, however, is that the players will be given every opportunity to develop and reach their full potential. If a player has the potential to trial or sign for a club, the staff at the academy have contacts within all levels of professional and semi-professional football to help players find a club.
