Launch of new website geared to recruitment

ALBION’s Academy today launches a new Talent Identification website as part of its ongoing search for the best and brightest young footballers in the West Midlands and beyond.

The website provides information about the Academy, the numerous success stories the club has enjoyed over recent seasons, as well as the many ways in which young players can take part.

A number of new player development programmes and player recruitment projects have been launched for the 2016/17 season - all designed to give young players the best possible opportunity to be spotted by and succeed at our EPPP Category 1 Academy. 

All of these programmes are based exclusively at the Club's Academy facility, providing professional player development and assessment free of charge. 

The aim is to find and work with the best and most hard-working players in the local region and beyond, seeking to add to our burgeoning reputation for helping to produce top-class Premier League footballers.

“We passionately believe that the Premier League stars of tomorrow are out there playing grassroots football now,” said Matt Richardson, Assistant Academy Recruitment Officer.

“Football potential comes in a variety of different shapes and sizes. Our player development programmes are designed to give everyone taking part the best possible chance to improve and succeed.”

“Alongside the work of our fantastic team of scouts, we hope that our new recruitment pathways will give lots more young players in the region the chance to live out their footballing dreams.”
