New Everton Academy Partnership
Llay United are please to announce that we are now a Partnership club with Everton Football Academy.
The aim of the partnership is to work with Everton Academy to try to find the next Premier League
Following the clubs success both on and off the pitch over the last few years, we were approached
by Everton Academy to act as their eyes and ears in the Wrexham and Flintshire areas to identify
the best players from age 4 to 8 and recommend these players to the Everton Satellite Academy,
from where it is hoped that the players will progress to their full academy at Finch Farm.
The club aims to do this by using our established under 8’s and 7’s teams, as well as expanding our
mini-kickers sessions on a Friday night to year 1 and reception children at 12 local schools.
As well as the obvious benefits that a partnership with a Premier league football club can bring,
our coaches will have an opportunity to go to Finch Farm to observe and take part in their
Academy coaching sessions; we are able to take our mini-football teams along to Finch farm to
play their academy teams on a Friday / Sunday.
Also on offer to the club is if any of the players that we recommend are signed by the Everton Academy
our club will receive a complete kit (of our choice).
Whereas the partnership does give our most talented players access into a premier league academy, it does not mean
that the club will have to stop working with the other local teams, this year alone we have taken teams to play Liverpool,
Stoke, Manchester City and Wrexham as well as a number of League of Wales Clubs.
