Football Scholarship Programme 2013

ARGYLE’S Football in the Community Trust are now recruiting for their highly successful Football Scholarship Programme and will be holding an open evening at Home Park on Thursday, January 24.

We are looking for young players of school leaving age, with a passion to play football at a high level, to take academic studies under the guidance of Plymouth Argyle whilst at the same time honing their footballing talents.

The programme sees 16-18 years olds participate in a number of academic studies alongside football scholarship run by Plymouth Argyle FC.

The programme is designed to give people good academic qualifications that can take them into universities, overseas universities, employment and work places. In addition to this it allows young people the opportunity to train and play as a football scholar alongside their studies.

Previous players have progressed into the professional game, climbed the football pyramid and also gone overseas whilst others have improved on their football ability and continue to play local football.

It does not stop players training or playing for their local teams. In fact we encourage this and would like players to stay within local football. The programme would not affect your games or training programme as the course is an academic programme and runs during term time.

For players who are currently studying in Year 11 and 12 it will give them an insight into the course and opportunity to see course programme and content.

The open evening will take place in the Board room from 5.30pm for girls and 6.30pm for boys.

If you would like to attend this open evening please contact Mark Lovell on 01752 562561, option four or e-mail
