Men's Football in partnership with Staines Town Football Club (STFC)

Men’s Football Academy in partnership with Staines Town Football Club.

Staines Town FC Academy, which has been in operation since the year 2000, provides outstanding outdoor and indoor facilities for the Football Academy. 

The Men’s Academy is based at our private training ground, which is situated in Bushy Park near Kingston. 

All students will train on Tuesday and Friday mornings, with additional weight training programmes, using the Kingston College Arena gym.  There is additional specialist training for goalkeepers which takes place.

All Academy players receive coaching from our UEFA ‘A’ and ‘B’ licensed coaches, and take part in weekly fixtures against high-level opposition – a shop-window for players to be seen by professional or semi-professional clubs.

Our competitive teams take part in the National League U19 Alliance, ECFA Colleges League and the Bostik West Youth League, as well as competing at Reserve level in the Football League.  We also run a Development Squad, for up-and-coming Academy prospects.  

Over the years, the Academy has produced some outstanding individual players, who have gone on to play for professional and semi-professional clubs both within the UK and abroad, most notably in America.  Over a number of years, the Academy has also contributed a large proportion of the players in the Staines Town FC Senior Squad. 

Most notable successful players over the last few years have included –

  • Deshane Dalling - who now plays for Huddersfield Town FC U23
  • Joe Aribo - currently playing for Charlton Athletic FC
  • Dominic Dwyer – who now plays in the MLS and represents TEAM USA

As well as these outstanding successes, over the years the Academy has consistently produced players of a high calibre, representing Staines Town FC and many other semi-professional football clubs. 

We are always looking for talented players with the right attitude and the ability to undertake both academic studies and football Academy training.
