We are delighted to announce that we have partnered with St Mary’s School, Menston and Ilkley Town Football Club to provide a brand new football scholarship program for school leavers starting September 2020.

The program will combine A Level or BTEC studies with a full time training and fixture program for boys and girls, competing in the National Colleges League each Wednesday afternoon. Ilkley Town AFC will also provide the option of a player pathway into their men’s u’21, u’23, reserves, 1st team and ladies teams from 2020/21.

The full time football program will give the players the unique experience to play and train in a professional environment surrounded by UEFA and FA qualified coaches. The players will train 3-4 times per week (Monday – Friday) whilst still being encouraged to play for their weekend teams. Players will also have the opportunity to study their FA level 1 and 2 coaching qualifications. 

Our unique program has many benefits, leading to university, USA Scholarships, coaching apprenticeships as well as full time employment.
