The Long Eaton United FC Football Academy is a fully-funded, 2 year, full-time education and football development programme delivered in partnership with Loughborough College, one of the UK’s leading providers of education through elite sport and also at professional football clubs.
Open to talented footballers aged between 16-18 years, The Football Academy is designed to develop both the academic and playing talent of students, giving you the skills and qualifications to further your career in the sport, fitness and leisure industry or go on to Higher Education.
We run trials at various points throughout the year. Future planned dates are shown below. But if you can't make these - don't worry. Just get in touch via our contact page - and let us know you're interested!
All our trials take part at Grange Park - the home of Long Eaton United FC.

Long Eaton United FC is an excellent club to be at because of the high standards of the facilities available. From the training pitches, first team pitch, classrooms to the clubhouse, nothing is not of the highest standard. We get the highest quality of coaching and you can see a clear pathway, if good enough between the Academy and Development Teams to the First Team.
