Football Academy update

The Aston Manor Football Academy in partnership with Aston Villa Foundation is going from strength to strength this year. We welcomed 16 new male players into year 12 and introduced our new Girls football Academy.

In September we had 18 girls that started the program and all have made a great start. It’s really positive to see a girls football academy in the local Aston area.

We now have a total of 47 players all pushing for places in our 3 teams. Both our men’s and women’s 1st teams compete in the Community & Education Football Alliance League (CEFA) and we have a men’s development team in the AoC Football Regional West Midlands League.

All teams have been training incredible hard over at Moor Lane this term. The girls have made a good start winning a game in the cup and a great 3-1 home league win over Bristol City FC. We are looking forward to many more games to come.

The men’s 1st team are topping their National League Cup group this year and mid table in the league, competing well with teams after getting promoted last season.

The men’s development team are training well and getting more used to the standard of play every week.

The football academy are looking forward to training hard and playing many more games this season.
