Stratford Town Elite Academy

Full time football & education 16 -18 college programme 


Founded in 2012 Future Pro academy has nurtured some of the best up and coming talent the UK has to offer. To name a few; Danny Ings, Premier league and senior England international, Matt Butcher of AFC Bournemouth and young welsh U19 starlet in the making Jack Challis. The aim of Future Pro Academy has always been to help nurture and develop talent and provide the highest level of coaching for the young professionals of the future.

In the past we have helped achieve this by working at a number of clubs including AFC Bournemouth, Birmingham City FC, Northampton Town and Coventry City FC. So in order to carry on this high standard of excellence we are delighted to announce our newest partnership with Stratford Town and Stratford upon Avon college , grade 2 (Good) Ofsted education training provider. Stratford upon Avon college  will be delivering the BTEC level 3 sport diploma. The elite academy will take place at the football club.

“What this means to us as an academy is we are working with a forward thinking club who want to help promote players into the first team and beyond in the professional game. Stratford Town is a very well respected and professional organisation with an ethos of providing young players the opportunity to progress and play in the Evo Stick Southern Premier League. This programme offers players the chance to be in a full time football environment and will help bridge the gap between the elite academy and first team.”  Demir Vavan - Academy Director.

“We are delighted to be working with Futurepro. Stratford Town have always had a desire to be the best at what we do in every way and to have an elite programme at the club has been a desire of the club for a long time. It will give a stepping stone for some of our youth team players to progress into a professional level.” Melanie TweddleStratford Town Chairman
