The expanding Redditch United Football Academy has begun for the 2017-18 campaign and recently drew their first game 0-0 against Aston Manor. Over 30 college age scholars have taken up the opportunity to take part in full time education and training and the club are already on the look our for next years players.

Alongside the college level programme the Academy will also launch a University level programme next year.

Anybody interested in the programme can visit the Academy’s new website at www.rufcacademy.com or email info@rufcacademy.co.uk . The website holds information for open events and the pre-season trials taking place throughout the year.
