Myddelton College will be partnering with Advance Player Development (APD) to offer an opportunity for pupils to excel both in the classroom and on the pitch.
APD have helped over 50 players gain professional and semi-professional contracts at clubs from non-conference academies to premier league academies. Notable alumni include Darko Gjabi (Manchester City and England), Malcolm Ebiowei (Glasgow Rangers and England), Lizzie Waldie (Crystal Palace) and Annie Rossiter (London City). Beyond football contracts we help players gain soccer scholarships to study for a degree in America and well as links with local University, Glyndwr. You will have a chance to gain your coaching badges and experience an internship with APD that could lead into a part time or full time coaching role. We currently have 7 ex-scholars now working for us as full time coaches. Once you become a member of the APD Family, you are never forgotten.
The APD Myddelton Football Academy aims to help young footballers experience a professional environment and unlock their potential. We welcome all abilities and want each player to fulfil their own potential. If you are a player who wants to simply enjoy their football and blow off some steam from the classroom the silver package is for you. If you are a more elite player who wants to see how far they can go in football, then APD will provide the platform to gaining a professional contract via the gold package.
Beyond your football development in technical ability and tactical understanding you will develop skills such as teamwork, leadership and resilience which will be vital later in life.
