FOOTBALL - Rugby Town open registration for September academy intake

RUGBY Town’s academy are inviting registrations from interested parties for its September 2022 intake at Butlin Road.

The club’s academy was founded in 2018 to provide a football-focused full-time education programme for 16 to 18 year olds – leading to a BTEC qualification and the potential opportunity of a pathway into senior football.

Three of the academy’s graduates – Caine Elliott, Josh Thomas and Madundo Semahimbo – formed part of Valley’s first team starting XI in the weekend victory over Godmanchester Rovers, alongside three other players that had featured in Town’s youth team in previous years.
