ABOUT US

BACKGROUND

Chester-Le-Street United was formed to create a pathway for players at Park View Academy of Sport to enhance opportunities which lead to professional football.

 

The club was formed by John Gamble and Lewis Pendleton to create a pathway for our academy, initially the Under 19 programme.

 

Having ran the Under 19 programme playing age group football competing in National Leagues and winning these competitions it was felt that in order to give players the best possible pathway into professional football was to expose them to senior football as a group playing against men. We therefore have evolved our third year programme into playing for senior football.

Players will have the opportunity to play for the FIRST TEAM or the reserves depending upon ability and their playing time.

 

You will have the option to train during the DAY OR ON AN EVENING to accommodate the pathway you choose with regards to your EDUCATION OR WORKING COMMITMENTS alongside your football.

 

Our programme is a FULL TIME TRAINING MODEL that seeks to provide a pathway into playing PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL, or at the very least to push players to play at a HIGH LEVEL, HOME OR ABROAD.

FOOTBALL PARTNERSHIP

PARTNERED WITH 
HUDDERSFIELD TOWN

We are partnered with HUDDERSFIELD TOWN having a formal professional link with the club. Our relationship is with the Academy Director (who runs the B Team) and the Head of recruitment for the club. Huddersfield Town became the first professional club to come away from the EPPP system at under 16.

 

Huddersfield Town have an under 18 team made up of Under 17 players. An Under 19 team made up of Under 18s and a B Team made up of Under 19-23s. Huddersfield Town are looking to SIGN PLAYERS who are ready to play first team football within 12 months.

We are following the Huddersfield Town performance programme for football led by their academy director and sports science teams.

 

The players in our academy play for Chester-Le-Street United first team who are developing a reputation for PRODUCING GOOD YOUNG PLAYERS, PLAYING ATTRACTIVE FOOTBALL. Having a club that is made up of youth players who train at our academy allows boys to train full time, mirroring the structure of a professional football club. Playing against senior players stretches our young footballers.

 

By having a weekend games programme it creates opportunities to organise SHOWCASE GAMES against PROFESSIONAL CLUBS  to put players in the shop window. Our emphasis is on getting players to play professional football using Chester-Le-Street United as a vehicle to progress to a higher level.

SHOWCASE GAMES

As part of the pathway you will play regular games against academies as the northern league midweek schedule subsides. This creates a perfect pathway for you to develop as a player by playing and training at an intense level in the early part of the season, as we head towards christmas we will organise more games against academies as you have physically developed providing you with the best possible chance of progressing your career. We played a number of showcase games previously against:-

Going into full time training allowed me to develop sides of my game which I was lacking. This enabled me to enhance these areas, ultimately helping me gain a professional contract.

HANSA ROSTOK

It was a year in which I played in a few positions and got to find out about myself as a player. Gained a fitness diploma qualification (PT), something which I haven’t yet come to need, but in the future could be handy, alongside a semi-pro football career, for example. It goes without saying that we had an epic season on the pitch, which is always nice, but most of all for me, I was able to thoroughly enjoy my football, and meet lads who I can say are mates for the long run.
