Academy Open Trial Coming Up

Margate Academy players have recently been selected by Jay Saunders, as the set-up continues to grow from strength to strength in partnership with Herne Bay High.

Margate's full-time Academy offers those aged 16 and above the chance to study A Levels and BTEC qualifications -with a total of 42 different courses on offer - whilst training and playing at HDP.

The players are developed ready for the first team, as Academy Manager Ricky Owen explained.

"Our Academy is growing from strength to strength and it is pleasing to see the boys' hard work rewarded with first-team call ups. Opportunities have to be earned but the player pathway structure is now fully embedded and offers something to unique for those thinking about what they'd like to do after GCSEs are complete."

"There is no better chance to develop than those match day experiences and under the guidance of Jay, Mike, Craig and senior first team players, the boys learn so much and will continue their progression."

Owen added, "Pathway opportunities play a huge part in our recruitment because we can offer genuine progression for talented and hard-working players. Jay fully supports our Academy and has a great record in developing talented players so as we begin to look ahead to the next academic year, there is no better time to join our full-time set-up."

Margate FC Academy hosts its first trial at Hartsdown Park on 21st February from 10am-12pm. To come along or find out more, please email footballacademy@hernebayhigh.org
