If you're leaving school this summer, and would like to find out more about how you can develop and improve your football whilst furthering your education and how Stalybridge Celtic can work with you to achieve this, book onto our trial day and meet our coaches.

Led by Dean Brathwaite, who has coached several professional footballers including Manchester City duo Liam Delap and James McAtee, our coaches will be available to talk you through what it’s like to study and train with Celtic’s Academy and answer any questions you may have.

Celtic have created a pathway that creates opportunities to progress through to the Club’s Under 18’s and Under 21’s sides, with players including George Omokua, Matt Jones, Glebs Klujevs and Zane Marsh all appearing for the Club’s first team in the last 12 months.

Academy graduate Darius Osei, who went on to sign professional contracts at Oldham Athletic and South Shields progressed through the Club’s academy before moving to Oldham for a substantial fee.
