Accommodation Needed For Youth Players

23 June 2014

We’re on the look-out for families who can provide accommodation for our youth apprentices who are moving away from home this summer.

Families are required to provide a private bedroom, healthy meals and a home-from-home for the 16-18 year olds.

It’s all year round and runs from the last week in June until the middle of May, with the players usually staying for six nights a week as players will usually go home on Saturday afternoons/evenings depending on whether the first team are at home, and if their family home is in reasonable travelling distance.

A monthly sum will be paid by the club to cover costs. 

A normal day will look like this:

Landlord/Landlady would prepare a healthy and nutritious breakfast between 6.30am and 7.30am and the apprentice would leave for work around 7.45am-8.00am.
Landlord/Landlady would prepare a healthy and nutritious packed lunch for the apprentice to take to work.
The apprentice would arrive back between 4.00pm and 5.30pm (unless they had a game or the first team had an evening home game) and the Landlord/Landlady would prepare a healthy and nutritious evening meal.
The apprentice would retire to his room or designated relaxing area until lights out at an agreed time.

Potential families will need to undertake a Criminal Records Bureau check before being able to house one of the young players. Anyone who thinks they might be able to help should contact Anthony Thompson by emailing or by calling Sarah Ashton on 08448261907.
