We are delighted to officially announce the club will be entering into the FA Youth Cup in the 2020/21 Season, after an 8 year absence from the competition.


The most prestigious U18’s competition in the country will be returning to the TRICO Stadium, with the very best of our U18’s talent from our Professional Development Programme (PDP) and Full-Time Football & Education Programme representing the club.


The return of the FA Youth Cup adds another opportunity and experience for those within the club, adding to our entry into the U19’s National League Alliance for our Full-Time Football & Education Programme, and the various teams within the PDP.


Full-Time Football & Education Programme Head Coach, Josh Wright, said: “this is a fantastic opportunity for all U18’s within the club, whether they are Full-Time or within the PDP. It is the very best competition to compete in at that age, and I hope the club can make an impact in it!”


We are recruiting for the 2020/21 Season. Visit www.rufcacademy.co.uk/apply if you are in year 11 or 12 and would like to join our Full Time Football & Education Programme.
