IT is one of those little known Argyle treasures that our blossoming Academy system has its very own dedicated website www.pafcacademy.co.uk
This has previously been used as a tool for players and parents to access a full range of information, from fixture arrangements and venue directions to information about our centres of excellence and playing philosophies within the Academy.
We have now reached the stage of adding a regular news section to the website, containing match reports from our exploits in the Peninsula League and coverage of games in the Youth Alliance.
Academy news also covers the latest international recognition for our players, sponsorship opportunities, updates from Academy manager Kevin Hodges and his staff, plus a whole lot more.
We are also delighted to announce that www.pafcacademy.co.uk will now become the new permanent home for results and information on the Big Green Lottery, a scheme devised to raise money for the Academy.
While profits raised by the Big Green Lottery go toward the next generation of Green talent, members also have the chance to win £500 every month, 10 members will win £10 each week and we are fast approaching the Grand Draw for £12,000.
This will be held at half-time of our pre-Christmas fixture against Doncaster Rovers on Saturday, December 10, when one of 12 lucky finalists will be randomly selected by a special Argyle guest.
Prior to that, we will hold a special evening here at Home Park to select the 12 finalists. Keep your eye on www.pafcacademy.co.uk for more information and an application form to join the Big Green Lottery.
At present, we have 508 members and the dream is to reach 650 by Christmas. All new members will have a chance of being selected for the Grand Draw, so get involved today.
