Following on from the resounding success of our Academy trials last week, with in excess of 100 budding young footballers showcasing their talent in front of the watchful Academy coaching line-up on our Meadow Park pitch, the BW PASE Academy is delighted to announce our trial and taster session schedule for June and July.

The next trial dates for BW PASE Academy hopefuls will take place at Meadow Park on Monday 5th July and Wednesday 14th July. The trials will be held on the Club’s state-of-the-art 4G astro pitch facility, so that Academy players can get a feel for what facility they will be training on day-in-day-out as a BW PASE Academy player.

Can’t wait until July to show our Academy coaches what you can do? Don’t worry, every Tuesday and Thursday throughout June, the BW PASE Academy will be hosting taster sessions for all current year 11, year 12 and year 13 players interested in joining the Academy for the 2021/22 season. The sessions will give potential scholars an insight into the facilities on offer at our Meadow Park home, the type of sessions and attention to detail the Academy provides and the level of coaches within our Academy set; who are all UEFA A or B qualified and have played the beautiful game professionally.


Simple – because our track record holds true to our mission and values; to create an environment for 16-19-year-olds to progress within both sports and education surrounded by first class facilities and resources. We want to stop talented young individuals from falling through the net and give them a chance to progress their talent with top quality coaching and education.

In the last two decades we have won more National Youth titles, produced more England Schools and Colleges internationals, and progressed more players in the professional and semi-professional game than any other sports and education programme of our kind in the UK.

To put these statements into perspective, to date the Academy has won eight National titles, as well as reaching the final on a number of occasions, competitions that fall only second to the FA Youth Cup in terms of prestige at youth level.

In addition, we have now put over 250 players into the semi-professional game, whilst also developing 12 players to earn professional contracts and play within the Football League. The ultimate dream of every player who joins the BW PASE Academy, showing that with the right attitude, discipline and desire, we can make your dreams a reality.

The latest Academy graduate to move into the English Football League was our very own Sorba Thomas, who after 6 years with the Club moved to Championship side Huddersfield Town for an undisclosed Club record six-figure fee.

Lastly, we have helped 28 young players achieve the highest accolade of all, representing their countries and playing on the international stage. Of these 28 players, 4 have in fact made full international appearances, namely Pelly Ruddock-Mpanzu (DR Congo), Lee Hodson (Northern Ireland), Kyle Vassell (Northern Ireland) and Calaum Jahraldo-Martin (Antigua and Barbuda), representing their countries in the European Championship Finals, and World Cup and Euros qualifiers, as well as international friendlies.

Although we highlight these accolades, we are proudest of the work we do every day with all the BW PASE Academy players, giving them the opportunities to enter further education at University level, whether that be in the UK or on ‘soccer’ scholarships in the United States of America, as well as helping them develop the functional skills to directly enter the workplace.
