A few weeks ago we announced that we have teamed up with Generation Sports to launch our Academy ready for the 2018/2019 season, and now we have a second trial date for July 11th.

The 16-19 Football Academy is located within the Homelands Stadium Complex and makes use of the club’s high quality facilities. Scholars will train 4 times a week on the club’s 3G main pitch and also play all matches on this surface. Education will be held in a fully functional classroom, with each scholar having use of a personal laptop/tablet. The scholars will also have access to an indoor hall, where strength and conditioning will be carried out pre and post-match.

Students will study a level 3 full time sport qualification, such as the one displayed in this link:


The Academy will compete in the U19 Tactic League/Cup. Matches will be played on a Wednesday afternoon. The Academy is headed up by Professional Footballer Barry Fuller and will work with a team including Ian Cox (current 1st team coach at Gillingham F.C) and qualified coaches from The Barry Fuller Football Academy.

The Academy will travel out to Marbella, Spain in January 2019 to take part in the Generation Sports Cup 2019 and also to carry out some warm weather winter training. This trip will be at an extra cost and please follow the link to access more information on this exciting opportunity.

The next trial date takes place on Wednesday 11 July 2018, 7pm at Homelands Stadium, Kingsnorth, Ashford TN26 1NJ.
