Just received your GCSE results and are wondering what to do in September? Or are you just about to go back to college and not sure if that course is right for you?
There are limited places left on the Matlock Town Academy, a hugely successful education and football academy where you will study for a BTEC in Sport Level 3, train full time and play for the Gladiators. The programme is ideal for anyone aged 16-18 who wants to progress with their education and develop their football.
In our first year we have had great success on the pitch with Lewis Brown becoming the first football graduate when he made his first team debut in February, several of our students have appeared for the reserve and ADS sides, two students were picked in the League’s Team of The Year and there were also four inclusions for the NPLFA inter-league squad against Oldham Athletic and Accrington Stanley. In July we were delighted to announce that Max Hunt had become the second professional graduate of the NPLFA when he moved to Mansfield Town. Off the pitch and the majority of our students are half way through their two year qualification whilst Corey Bulheller secured a four year scholarship in America at the Bacone College in Oklahoma (http://nplfa.co.uk/corey-bulheller-secures-scholarship-in-america/)
At the Matlock Town Academy you will study, train and play full time.
