Progress is being made at the Redditch United FC Academy and students are taking advantage of the opportunities of full-time football and education.

Within the football programme students are able to access coaching three days a week with UEFA licensed coaches including Darren Byfield, current first Team Manager. The squad is split between two teams that compete on a Wednesday afternoon.

Since the start our Academy 1st team have dominated their league and the only dropped points came on the opening day of the season in a 0-0 draw at home. Our Academy 2nds have made significant progress since the start of the season and recent form shows that this team, primarily filled with first year students, is benefiting from the ability to train full time.
