Luton Town Cedars Football Development Programme is now recruiting for players to participate in the programme during Academic Years 2015-17.

This Programme is one of a very small number in the country that offer a joint Football / A Level Programme giving players the opportunity to study for a minimum of 3 ‘A’ Levels whilst training for 8 hours a week under the guidance of a Luton Town ‘A’ and ‘B’ Licence Coach.

Players will also have the opportunity to participate in games in the Football Conference Youth Alliance and the Southern Counties Floodlit Youth League.

The aim of this programme is to provide a continued football and academic education for U18 players who might not yet have reached their full potential physically or technically, who have been missed by other clubs, or have shown signs of being a late developer.

This programme gives its participants another 2 years in a Professional Club environment where they can strive to achieve their goal of becoming a full time scholar or professional player at Luton Town.

If you perform, opportunities will be given to train and play with the clubs Full Time Scholars.

Success stories so far include Harry Tamplin’s move from the programme back into a full time scholarship at Luton Town.

To be considered for the programme you need to be a current School Year 11 pupil who Academically will achieve: 5 GCSE passes at A* to C.

The 3 chosen ‘A’ Level Subjects must have GCSE passes A* to B. If you are unable to undertake 3 ‘A’ Levels you will not be accepted.

Final Grades are not a guarantee of acceptance. Cedars Upper School will have the discretion whether they decline or accept applications.
