SAINTS have launched an ambitious scholarship programme which aims to provide comprehensive education and UEFA-standard training, leading to recognised qualifications for gifted footballers.
Starting in September, the club wants to recruit up to 20 students who will be able to access a range of courses at Walford and North Shropshire College.
Academy scholars will be based at the College’s Oswestry campus for the educational part of their programme whilst Total Network Solutions FC will be the lead provider of football coaching.
Scholars will receive coaching with UEFA-licenced TNS coaches for three half days a week and are likely to form the backbone of the College’s football team.
They will play in the National Youth Academy’s league on a Wednesday afternoon and for a TNS team at the weekend.
There will be strong links with the Shrewsbury Town Academy, which is also based at the College.
There is an open evening for interested parents and would-be scholars on Wednesday 25 June at 7.00pm at the Oswestry Campus of Walford and North Shropshire College.
