Academy Granted Full Status

  • Academy

Bromley Football Club are delighted to announce that our Academy has been granted Full Status by the National League. Academy Director Mark Hammond shared his delight on the news…

“As part of the National League Youth Academy 2019-20 Category 4 application the Club had an audit on the 2nd July and we were successfully granted full status as well as receiving excellent feedback guaranteeing the future of our Academy.

This represents very positive news for the Club, the Academy and U23s side. An enormous effort went on behind the scenes from staff such as Tom Beaumont (Head of Education), Sue Whittaker (Head of Academy Operations) and support was provided by senior staff at the Club such as 1st Team Manager, Neil Smith.

We were assessed in key performance indicators, further commended on our Vision Football syllabus and player pathway. Although it was a very challenging process, as a Club we aim to take advantage of the opportunity to be compared with EPPP Football League Academies and to identify areas where we can improve.

The Academy we will receive a one day assessment visit this season (2020) by the F.A. and National League to ensure we have successfully worked towards the 2020-21 season.

I would like to thank the Club and staff involved to help ensure the Club is preparing for the future and are moving in the right direction.”
