Scholarship Programme

ARGYLE’S Football in the Community Trust is now recruiting for their highly successful Football Scholarship Programme...

...and will be holding an open evening at Home Park on Thursday, January 23.

We are looking for young players of school leaving age who have 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 will see 16-18 years olds participate in a number of academic studies alongside a football scholarship run by Argyle. The programme is designed to give people academic qualifications that can take them into universities, employment and work places.

In addition, 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 gone overseas. 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 that runs during term time.

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

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

If you would like to attend this open evening please contact Lee Britchford on 01752 562561, option 4, or e-mail
