The Foundation Phase football development sessions are open sessions and players of all abilities are welcome to come along and join in. These sessions are designed to be fun and teach the players new skills in a safe and friendly environment.

Players are advised to wear trainers or moulded football boots on the 3G surface. Metal stud/blades are not allowed. Children are advised to wear suitable clothing and don’t forget to bring a drink.

The session will run during the school term time and parents are allowed to stay and watch. There will be no coaching sessions during school half term holidays.

Any players that show outstanding individual talent will be invited to train/trial with our current Academy squads.

The aims of the sessions are to provide players with structured coaching sessions and enhance their football skills and to also help us to identify and produce players to represent Scunthorpe United Academy.

All of our Academy coaches have Enhanced CRB disclosures, have a child protection/ safeguarding children certificate, are emergency aid trained and are Football Association qualified coaches.

If you would like your child to attend the sessions or have any questions please contact me to register your place on 07850 360368 or by email on
