Jamie Allen, Callum Camps and Andy Cannon are just three names in a long list of Academy graduates who have gone on to feature for Rochdale AFC’s first team.
With a conveyor belt of talented footballers coming through the ranks at the club, the stats speak for themselves.

In addition, the club is ranked sixth out of the 72 league clubs and 12th out of the 92 for producing players.
The measurement of productivity includes all player production by Dale, including players developed at the club who are now playing for other clubs.
The stats have been produced by the Premier League and are based on the last three seasons – 2012-13, 2013-14 and 2014-15.
