The YDP Football Academy was launched in September 2018. We currently have an Under 7 and 8 team, that compete in the Peterborough and District Junior Alliance League. The teams receive weekly professional coaching from YDP qualified coaches. Through our contacts and links to professional football clubs, we arrange regular fixtures against pro clubs. Our current Under 8 team have also participated in a major European tournament in Germany, playing against Italian giants AC Milan and English champions Manchester City. We aim to create an environment where the players feel confident to express themselves and play with creativity and freedom. We also aim to instill discipline, professionalism and teach vital life skills.
