Academy

The Woking FC Academy has been operating in its current format for over 10 years with the aim of helping talented young footballers, aged 16-19, make progress into the club's first team set up or in their sporting careers whilst continuing with their academic studies.

For the 2020/21 season the Academy will operate out of Woking College and Westfield FC offering subjects which range from 'A' Levels to Sports Coaching courses whilst in addition they are also able to offer a limited number of places to boys who wish to be educated elsewhere. The scheme includes 6 hours of coaching per week by fully-qualified UEFA 'A' and 'B' licensed coaches alongside the choice of academic studies.

The Academy will be running four teams in the following Leagues this season: U18 Samba Youth League; U19 National League Football Academy South; U19 Tactic League and U23s Suburban Premier League.

In the previous two seasons First Team Manager Alan Dowson has had a number of academy graduates in his squad including; Sam Mason, Craig Ross, Declan Appau, Charlie Hester-Cook, Dan Choules and most recently Jayden Wareham, Adam Guest, Leo Hamblin, Sam Evans and Selim Saied.

In addition, there are many former academy players currently plying their trade in both Football League and National League such as Joe McNerney & Ollie Palmer (Crawley Town), Chris Hussey (Cheltenham Town), Ross Worner (Havant & Waterlooville), Charlie Carter (Stevenage) & Lazar Stojsavljevic (Newport).

Players will also have the chance to represent the academy in the prestigious FA Youth Cup with the club reaching both the 1st and 2nd rounds in recent years, a great achievement for a non-league club as well as showcase fixtures against Football League and Premier League academies.
