Football Opportunities with B&FC and Fleetwood Town FC

An exciting partnership between B&FC and League One club Fleetwood Town FC is creating new opportunities for young people in football…

Boys Shadow Youth Team and Girls Elite Football & Education Programme

From September, two fantastic new programmes will allow you to study an Ofsted Outstanding education and pursue opportunities in football at the same time.

This is an excellent opportunity to develop your talent for football alongside skills in your chosen career area (not necessarily sport-related).

Our girls programme is the only one of its kind available on the Fylde Coast. Male or female, exciting progression opportunities await talented players.

  • A minimum of six hours training per week under our FA/UEFA qualified coaching team (headed by former Premier League player Andy Preece)
  • A branded tracksuit and training kit
  • Subsidised trips (including warm weather training camp)
  • On-site sport therapy, conditioning and nutrition support
  • Fitness suite membership and personalised training programme
