Our link with AFC Bournemouth

We are privileged to announce an exciting feeder link with AFC Bournemouth Academy. This link gives the players an opportunity to get on the player pathway. We’re delighted to report that two players have already made their way into AFC Bournemouth’s ID Centres. The link equally allows players to come back down from Academy/ID Centres into the Simon Francis Football Academy for further monitoring.
