Bridge Academy News
Huge congratulations to Sonny from our Quedgeley site who has been offered a place with Bristol City Pre Academy - as you can see he is thrilled! That's the 11th Bridge Football Academy player to sign with a pro club.... Onwards and upwards!!!Who will be next?!? Work...
What we get asked at Bridge Football Academy
How often do you train?
Once a week all through the year.
How regularly do you play games?
We aim to play games at least once a month, though it is normally more frequent than this around every three weeks.
Can I still play for my local team?
Yes Bridge encourages players to play for their local side and aims not to clash with this in anyway. Our games are midweek and so do not clash with local club games either.
How much does it cost?
The cost of the Bridge programme is £25.00 per month, so around £5-6 per week over the year. There are no additional costs so games are included in this and there are no registration fees.
What are my chances of getting in to a pro club?
This question is difficult to answer accurately. Last season Bridge saw 10 players sign for pro clubs, around 5% of its total players. It is entirely up to pro clubs if they want you to trial, but if you work hard always do your best when training and playing for Bridge you do have a chance.
