Through NEFA’s partnership with Notts County FC we run a development centre in Rotherham on behalf of Notts County to identify and develop our regions good young players at U13 to U16 age group.
Working with UEFA A Licence coaches the Notts County Development Centre is a weekly session that does not impact Saturday or Sunday football but allows further development of game understanding and ability to execute high quality football actions.
Additionally, progress of all Development Centre players will be shared with Notts County on a regular basis.
Sessions are on a Monday (U13), Tuesday (U14) and Fridays (U15 and U16) all on a leading, brand new artificial 3G surface. For more information click here
We have designed everything about the football academy to reflect a professional academy set up to give young players the opportunity to be ready to progress into the game.
