We are delighted to announce that we now have an official agreement with Middlesbrough Football club! The partnership agreement will see Middlesbrough FC get first refusal on our elite players, there will be other opportunities such as match day experiences for all of our players with further details to follow soon.

Head Coach Richard Darcy said “We are really pleased Boro have recognised that there are some fantastic footballers in North Yorkshire, we have some great kids in our programme and with this agreement these young footballers will get every opportunity to showcase their skills. The club have already taken several of our players into the academy and the recognition from the club opens the door for many others who are excelling within our sessions and games. I would personally like to thank Martin Carter and Craig Liddle for their time and effort in pursuing this for our players”.

North Yorkshire Soccer Academy aims to provide children aged 3-12 with the opportunity to learn and have fun whilst playing football.

Each session is designed to teach players new skills and techniques in a fun, safe and relaxed environment.

Sessions cover a variety of technical skills including passing, turning, shooting, heading and ball skills, as well as match time.

All of our skilled coaches are UEFA or FA qualified. Head coach, Rich Darcy, is a scout and an academy coach for Middlesbrough Football Club and has worked with FC. Barcelona Youth Coaches.
