A group of talented young footballers have become the latest recruits to Morecambe Football Club’s Academy.
The Under 9s visited Globe Arena this week, to put pen to paper for the coming season. They will join the club’s flourishing youth academy, which develops young players from Under 8s through to Under 16s; with a view to ultimately creating a pathway for the most talented to progress to scholarships when they leave school.
Academy players work with their coaches three times a week and participate in the EFL schoolboy games programme against other academies at weekends.
The young recruits were identified via the Club’s scouting network from local grassroots teams, schools and Morecambe’s own Development Centre.
James Dunn, Lead Foundation Phase Coach with the Academy said, “It’s great to invite the new boys to Morecambe Football Club as they begin their footballing journey with us.
“We provide young players with a varied programme covering training, physical conditioning, life skills, futsal and social skills; with a view to developing them not just as players but as young people too.”
