​​

We are delighted to announce that Wealdstone FC is partnering with Harrow College to operate its Football Academy, based at the College.

 

The Wealdstone FC Academy - Harrow College Campus - will initially offer football and education opportunities for 16 to 18 year-olds wishing to progress within both sports and education. The club extends huge thanks to Dale Welch, the Head of the Wealdstone Academy at Brunel University and Manager of our u23s who was pivotal in enabling the linkup to happen.

 

Cameron Mawer, Head of Player Development at Wealdstone FC said “The partnership with Harrow College is hugely significant for the football club. Both the location and the facilities available are fantastic, and it also significantly increases the range of educational courses we can offer. Harrow College shares our vision of creating an exciting environment for young adults to progress within both sport and education, surrounded by first class facilities and resources.

 

"Wealdstone FC have developed a realistic pathway from youth football into the first team, with the aim of providing Matt Taylor and the management team with a pipeline of homegrown talent that can have an impact in the National League and above. As well as supporting the development of young players who are striving to progress their football careers, we enable them to achieve skills, experience and qualifications that will help them progress into other careers”.

 

Clive Hodge, Principal at Harrow College said
“We are excited to be working with Wealdstone FC and offering our students the opportunity to develop their skills and further ignite their passion for football, equipping them for a career in the sports industry. Through this partnership, Harrow College students will combine their qualification with top-class training and access to amazing facilities enabling them to take their footballing career to the next level.”

 

Danny Kindell, Wealdstone FC Director, said “In what is the 125th Anniversary of the football club it means an awful lot that after so many years away from the Harrow area we are once again able to bring the Stones back into the local community.

 

We've long believed that the best young players in the area should be developing at Wealdstone FC and the addition of the academy at Harrow College to our 2 other sites means we now have facilities available to promising footballers across North West London. Our academy is fast becoming the destination football club for many promising young players outside of the Premier League and EFL.”
