Selby College Football Development Centre (FDC)

Selby College Football Development Centre (FDC) gives a platform to those players who have previously been involved with professional clubs, as well as those who have yet to be given the opportunity to showcase their sporting talents. With links to local professional and semi-professional clubs, students will have the opportunity to play at the highest level.

Training is incorporated into the study programme each week, with teams coached by level 3 coaches. Additionally, sports science support is provided alongside the pitch-based sessions. This includes technical, tactical and strength and conditioning coaching for all players. Massage and rehabilitation is also available to those involved in the FDC.

The men’s first team are the current Yorkshire and Humberside champions and awaiting to represent the area at the National Championships in April. They currently play in the ECFA category 2 league. Whilst the second team play in the category 3 league.

The women’s team play weekly fixtures in the ECFA Yorkshire and Humber league (West League) currently challenging for promotion. The squad are seeking new players to drive the team forward.
