Morecambe FC Academy is looking for new houseparents.

As we make preparations for the new football season, Morecambe Football Club Academy is looking for Houseparents to accommodate our next batch of apprentice footballers (16 - 18 years of age), either on a season-long or temporary-cover basis.

The players will complete their apprenticeship over the next two years and will require accommodation and evening meals Monday to Thursday (some Fridays) for the duration of the season (up until early May 2021), with a Christmas break for two weeks. 

Houseparents will receive a monthly remuneration and will play a massive part in aiding Morecambe Football Club to produce the next generation of professional players. 

If you would like further information and wish to be considered, please contact Academy Manager Stewart Drummond at or 01524 411797.

Morecambe Football Club is committed to equal opportunities as well as safeguarding, promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. Any applicant wishing to be considered as a host family will need to demonstrate they are able to share this commitment.

As part of this commitment, host families are required to attend Safeguard Training every three years, which is delivered by the Football Association/Football League. Host family members and any other persons over the age of 16 who reside at the address, are legally required to complete enhanced DBS checks, subscribe to the DBS Update Service on an annual basis.
