Cefn Druids Academy Scholarship 2020-2021 Application Details

Information for any current U16s players who wish to apply for our full time scholarship program starting in September 2020.

The Cefn Druids FC Academy is fast becoming known for helping young and talented footballers showcase their skills to clubs, not only in the Welsh pyramid but across England. Not only do we offer you the chance to play at the highest levels, but also get an education in your chosen field.

The scholarship programme is built using the NCAA student athlete model and members of the coaching staff and the club management have extensive experience working in the USA using the same model and been very successful.

Unlike other football scholarships, Cefn Druids FC scholars have the opportunity to take any level 2/3 diploma offered at a college as well as any AS/A levels of their choice. Training is built into the education programme and is designed to ensure our scholars get maximum study time as well as on pitch coaching. You will be classed as a full time footballer and so your training schedule will reflect that with up to four football specific training sessions per week as well as strength and conditioning sessions, recovery and match analysis.

All scholars will train with our First Team who play in the Cymru Premier League with the best players competing at that level. They will also play for the U23s in the Reserve League, our U19s in the Premier Development League as well as with partner teams within the Welsh National League.

Why come to us?

Last season, five players played for the senior team in the Cymru Premier League, six players have started a game for the senior team in cup games, two players have been signed on full professional contracts and we have strong links with NCAA Div I/II Universities in the USA and that means a high level of exposure increasing your chances of studying abroad. 

There are limted places on the scholarship programme and so we are only looking for a select few to take up this unbelievable opportunity.
