The first team competed in the National League Youth Alliance, against other professional & semi-professional clubs from the North East of England.

Our 5th season in this competition, saw our best season in the league so far breaking all of our previous league records.

✅ Most points from a NEFA team

Some of our other learners will be beginning jobs in coaching, working towards a career in sport.

We look forward to welcoming our new learners in July for another successful season ahead.

Well done Rhys. X

We are absolutely delighted have formed a partnership with Notts County Football Club Academy.

After a long process, were over the moon to have joined forces with a club and staff who share our values and outlook for working with young players.

The partnership will see us both aid Notts with player recruitment from the South Yorkshire region, share coaching best-practice and will also deliver Development Centres in Rotherham on behalf of Notts County in the U13-U16 age categories.

For more information please contact ryan@nefa.co.uk

With 88 games across all the NEFA teams this season. Many of our young players have accumulated far more minutes of competitive football than they will have before.

The top 3
🥇 Rhys Alsop - 4240 mins
🥈 Ethan Peckett - 4215 mins
🥉 Lewis MacDonald - 4143 mins

Rhys Alsop’s total minutes for NEFA (excluding his game time playing for NECL side Clipstone FC) is a higher number of competitive minutes than any professional player has in the EFL this season. 

A tremendous effort from Rhys, Ethan, Lewis and all the other NEFA players this season.

Congratulations mate Cracking ⚽️🏆 all the nominations should also be very proud 😀👍🏻

Full Time ⚽️

The 88th and final game of the NEFA season provided an outstanding evidence of the players learning from this season.

NEFA running out 10-0 winners against private school Brooke House Academy.

Goalscorers: 
Dennis x3
Coates x2
Lee
Zain
Shaw
Pyke
And in his final game a first NEFA goal for Chris Bleur 👏🏽 

The team performance was not the only headline from today’s game. First year student Jacob Turner who missed out on the game through injury managed and coached the side today. With the assistance of second years Lewis MacDonald & Rhys Alsop. Jacob set out the team and individual intentions, led the pre match team presentation, warm-ups, made notes during the game supporting his half time feedback to the players.

An outstanding display of leadership, communication and game insight from Jacob at just 17 years of age. Leading the team to one of the best performances and the biggest scoreline of the season. After Jacob’s performance, usual managers Spencer Fearn and Ben Nicholson are in danger if being made redundant.

NEFA Second year student Kyle Dunston sat proud with his signed Rotherham United shirt.

Many thanks to Rob Scott and all the Rotherham United staff and players for providing Kyle with a signed shirt from the club, a wonderful gesture from the club he supports and follows around the country. 

The shirt was delivered up to Kyle from some of his NEFA team mates. Who went up to check on Kyle following his surgery on a recent knee injury he suffered playing for NEFA. Kyle a second year student has made enormous progress this season progressing from the NEFA 2nd team to the NEFA 1st and Senior teams playing 2807 minutes of football this season. 

All the staff and players at NEFA wish Kyle well with his recovery and look forward to seeing him back on the grass again.
