Members of the academy will receive weekly specific training, focused on developing each player’s skills, set to ensure personal development.

We believe that all players must be given the chance to use and apply the skills they possess and the skills they have acquired and are acquiring into matches. We watch, analyse and evaluate during training and provide an assessment that highlights the strengths and identifies the weaknesses. Our sessions are designed to enhance the players’ strengths and improve their weaknesses.




Our sessions will be delivered by our FA and UEFA Qualified coaches under direction and alongside The Academies Head Coach/ Football Development Manager.



Small sided games, attacking and defending play as an individual and as a team, speed agility training, strength and conditioning, which develop all aspects of attacking and defending.



Every Thursday evening at our base:
17.00 – 18.30: Foundation Phase 6-11
18.30 – 20.00: Youth Development Phase 12-16
The Bexley Business Academy
Yarton Way
DA18 4DW


Players attend The Academy by official invitation only / recommendation, which will be made by the Head Coach/Football Development Manager. Players will attend and train for 12-16 weeks. In that time players will be monitored and evaluated by the coaching staff and scouts. If players have performed at the expected level they will be asked to continue attending The Academy.


  • We A.I.M to play fixtures against a host of different academy teams
  • A chance to play against teams with the best crop of talent in each age group
  • The score-line of these fixtures is not necessarily our main priority. In saying this, we go into every match playing for a win.
  • We want parents / players to see our upcoming fixtures as an opportunity for our players to showcase their ability and demonstrate why they are capable of playing with the best talented players in their age group.
  • A good test to experience the level / tempo of football that is required at academy clubs.
  • A great experience for everyone involved with the club to be part of regardless the outcome of the fixtures.
